After lunch you can enjoy an long digestive walk on the new pedestrian area where you can spot, among the others, the magnificent Elbphilharmonie, 10 year to complete the construction of this beautiful building and almost €800 of costs.
Museumscafé im Jenisch Haus:

Inga Wilkens (b. 1987) is a painter living and working between Hamburg, Berlin and Munich, Germany.
Originally from a small artist village named Fischerhude in Northern Germany, art was all around her when she grew up. Fascinated from an early age by Impressionism and the aesthetic values of Zen, her intuitive use of color and arresting play with shadow strives for simplicity and lucidity. Her oil and acrylic paintings hover towards abstraction and minimalism, yet breathe the clean air and convey the meditative silence stemming from a deeply felt connection with nature. Her works evoke the earthliness of colors or the proximity of a clear night sky, a sense of freedom one only finds in the essence of things. Inga does not so much pre-compose her paintings; she rather creates them intuitively, as spontaneous reactions to the present moment. Her practice values process and embraces the chaotic, yet always maintains a compositional centeredness that never makes her works feel out of balance.
