Hans Hummel: A symbol of Hamburg: These 1.82-metre-high and 240-kg-heavy figures made from glass-fibre-reinforced plastic are situated in the area between the Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) and Alter Wall. The original Hamburg character is there as advertising for his home town. 43 banks, insurance companies, hotels and retailers from the Hanseatic city have provided sponsorship for the figure. Each figure was designed individually by an artist. "An enrichment of the city" says Henning Albers, boss of City Management, who is the author of the idea and is sponsoring 15 of the figures. But the figures are intended not only to make the city centre more colorful and attractive for shoppers and tourists, but also at the same time to serve a good purpose. The story of the figures is that Hans Hummel's real name was actually Johann Wilhelm Bentz, an original Hamburger who was born in 1787, was resident in Große Drehbahn. 36, and who died in 1854. He worked as a water carrier and was considered to be an ill-tempered type, which the children of the new town used to tease.
