Cremon Bridge Hamburg

Cremon Bridge – Friday hangout at its best

My city is basically divided in two parts by one big road. It has 6 lanes, was formerly known as the East-West Street (and unofficially still is among Hamburg residents) and was built as a 2.5km speedway through the city from 1956 on. The street is ugly to m,e but at the same time it has a certain charm which I find appealing when I stand on the bridge called “Cremon Brücke”. There are several different views to enjoy from there and the bridge has escalators that can change direction, which makes it more convenient to use.

In the summer of 2019, the people of Hamburg started using the bridge on Friday nights to drink the French sparkling wine “Cremant” on it as part of a display that the bridge is an important landmark within the city. Rumors around tearing down this 60s building which features a blue colour and is easily seen when you cross the inner shopping district towards the harbour city/Speicherstadt have caused artists and organisations to meet here on Fridays and bring drinks — but with caution, as the vehicles below the bridge shouldn’t be distracted.

In any case, it is a place to check out, night and day, to get scenic views in the middle of town.
