Watch: Hamburg Port Authority Put Buoy-Men To Swim Again

With the warmer temperatures, the “buoy-men” is also coming out of their winter quarters at the Hamburg Port Authority again. Since 1993, four “buoy-men” by artist Stephan Balkenhol have been greeting ships, tourists, and Hamburg residents. The 2.40 m high floating statues stand throughout Hamburg’s waterways.

Originally they were made of wood, but now they are made of aluminum. With our camera, we were there when one “buoy-man” resumed its summer position on the Elbe near Neumühlen. All this in the current episode of PORT IS WHAT WE DO.
