Europa Passage, under the lowest level there is another one :)
As the day started out (and ended just like that) very rainy, I took my time before I started my way around again. My first stop was at the Europa Passage, which is Hamburg's largest inner city Shopping Mall. Being used to Austrian shopping malls (in comparison rather small) I was impressed by the size of this mall and had to take some pictures.

Looking after my wallet I only allowed it to get out of my purse twice for the purchase of earrings and delicious chocolate ice-cream. So I wandered around the shopping mall for 2 hours until I met my boyfriend at the underground station Jungfernstieg.

From there we went to Hallerstraße where we walked around in the rain until we found the Museum of Ethnology (Völkerkundemuseum). The museum itself was large and the different things to see very interesting, but unfortunately the museum is being restaurated and therefore a couple of exhibitions were closed.

However, we were able to see the exhibitions of Paraguay, Egypt, Africa, Incas, Buddhism, European culture, Indonesia and Bali. The entrance fee was 5 € for everybody, there are no special fees for students. Usually the exhibitions of Paraguay, Egypt and some others have to be paid separately (2,50 € each) but I guess we didn't have to, since there are still quite a lot of exhibitions closed due to the restauration.
