Photographer's Note

As I walked around the small town of Stade in northern Germany, I tried to capture the old architecture of a typical mediaeval hanseatic city. Stade was founded in 1209 and is probably the oldest city in northern Germany. It was one of the most important cities in the Hanseatic League for several centuries. It was even more important than Hamburg for some time. What you see on this picture is the old port inside the city walls that was once used for debarkation.
Now there are mostly restaurants around this place. This ship that you see is a typical mediaevil lighter that was used for transportation in shallow waters.
