ABC Wednesday: J is for Johannes Brahms

Johannes Brahms was born in Hamburg and lived here for a while. Unfortunately, all the houses he lived in were destroyed during WWII. Wikipedia has a photo of the house he was born in, though

Johannes Brahms Platz
There's a Johannes Brahms Platz right in front of the Laeiszhalle, the main concert hall of Hamburg with two sculptures in his honour, a Brahms museum a short walk from there and opposite of the Laeiszhale is the Brahms Kontor. A Kontor is an office building and they are typical for Hamburg, built with red bricks.

Brahmskontor
The Johannes Brahms Platz is about a ten minute walk from the Israelitische Töchterschule I showed you last week - Hamburg is a city that can be explored in foot very well and you'll find interesting things along the way. I certainly do, I came across a number of things I hadn't seen before while taking the photos for this meme.
