Hans Hummel Figures

more than a year ago
Throughout the city centre you will notice statutes of men carrying buckets. They are all varying artists’ renditions of Hans Hummel - Hamburg’s famed water carrier. Hans Hummel was actually named Johann Wilhelm Bentz and lived in Hamburg from 1787 until 1854. The children of the city would scream „Hummel, Hummel“ when they saw him and he would retort „Mors, Mors.“ It has since become a famous dialogue in Hamburg.
