Today was the day: Hamburg’s “swan father” Olaf Nieß and his team brought back our white animal spring heralds – directly amoung us onto the Alster Lake. Book keeping documents relating to the swans can be traced back to the 16th century. Since the 12th century they enjoy a special protection: It is not only prohibited to kill or hurt the swans but even to affront them.
