Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Bremen is my mom's hometown and I spent some time there. The Beck's brewery is just off the Google image from Zeilfanaat. I'll just hand over the reins to him, but with one little picture (not part of the contest)


Bremen was once a premier shipbuilding city, and of course of one of the old Hanseatic cities. In modern days it has fallen on bad times, with high unemployment and related issues. Fewer boats are built here than in years past, but famous shipbuilders such as Lürssen, Blohm und Voss and Abeking & Rasmussen are still there.
zeilfanaat and Seaduction like this.

Bremen was a complete guess on my part, but the radio towers made me think northern Europe, and the well-developed waterfront and tall ship in the background "Hanseatic city". Then, with your clues, it was a matter of going down the list of cities that are still accessible to large ships.

And of course, the final clue in the picture were the orange awnings on the apartment building; anyone from northern Europe (myself included) then knows to look for a building that faces south

Let me dig around my photo files a bit, and I'll post a new picture later tonight.

Andrew is too far to the east, Mark too far too the west.

Coincidentally, the location sits almost exactly on the great circle line between the Canaries and (northern) Turkey.
