Hamburg city officials are mulling a proposal to build a cable car between the city's Wilhelmsburg district and the St Pauli "entertainment district", thereby handily linking the site of the International Garden Show (IGS) with the Reeperbahn's brothels. Artist's impression of the cable car over the Elbe. Pic: Doppelmayr/Stage …
you've seen the gardens ...
now see the lady gardens
Quite understandable, yet nearsighted
atempt to reduce a risk of heart attack due to strain to commute to the entertainment area.
Which will in long term lead to higher rate of heart attacks during the entertainment itself. Calculated risk, or "mission accomplished"?
let me see, 18 minutes you say?
I hope they remember to build it high enough for ships to pass under unlike ...
a similar scheme in Nha Trang, central VietNam.
The developers kicked back millions of dollars and the planning department approved shorter, cheaper, support masts.
Now cruise ships can no longer use the channel below to sail into the harbour.
Is there now a 500metre high club?
Less than 500 days to go.
Too late to build one in London, I suppose.
serviced by cable car
As my father used to say, "service is what a bull gives a cow". Surely service by cable car must be painful and awkward.
Also handy for the Hamburger Dom
St Pauli is also a handy stop to get to the Hamburger Dom funfair in Heiligengeistfeld which is well worth a look.
Other things to see in St Pauli
FC St Pauli! Well worth a visit. Even when they lose.
Also, metal bars
We used to hang out in the Reeperbahn after the Wacken Open Air festival - now thanks to the new transport we can see more Gardening than just the Uphill variety :0)
"If the cable-car's rocking, don't come a-knocking"
(The icon? You're horny, and there's a bill involved...)
An excellent idea
Now the Horticulturalists can plant their seed
Taking a ride
hehehehe, I'd be the 1St to take a "ride" on one of those babies Or babes which ever "comes" first (normally me)...
A sound Idea ....
BUT - I wonder if they will ever bridge the gap between London and Amsterdam in the same way!!!! I know some wicked houses of horizontal refreshment over there. :D
