It goes like this: the Devil came to the Church and since it didn't have any windows, he thought he could come and do whatever he pleased. But then, a ray of light came through a window and burned him, leaving a mark on the tile floor in the shape of a hoof. And that is when you walk into the church the first impression is that there is only one window in the background but really there are windows on every wall. This footprint is in the Frauenkirche Cathedral and though I tried not to, I could not resist comparing it to my own foot.
Harrys Hafen lived near the Port of Hamburg's St. Pauli district, most of the twentieth century. The young Harrys began buying and exchanging with sailors from remote areas, most unusual objects, and then sold them in his store. Over time, Harrys converted his store into a vast "Cabinet of Curiosities" ranging from a stuffed polar bear resting on the lintel of the door, to a real siren figurehead. Sculptures, carvings, masks, miniatures, polychrome tables, and countless animals lie in the basement rooms. There are hundreds, more than 3,000. When Harrys died, his sons decided to charge admission to the store as a kind of anthropological museum.
