Sword Fighting in Hamburg

by Daniel Kohlsdorf
Since I am moving to Hamburg (Germany) I started reading up on the city. While I grew up in the next big city (Bremen), I still don't know a lot about Hamburg itself or the local traditions. Except that it had pirates in the past. One of the most famous pirates who lived in Hamburg was Klaus Stoertebeker. Monkey Island taught me two things: Pirates have to be trained in sword fighting and sword fighting involves a lot of insulting . A quick google search reveals that there are insults local to Hamburg. So here it is, a historically accurate sword figh in Hamburg. The background shows the Hamburg port city.
