Hamburg Considers Sky Tram

Officials in Hamburg, Germany are considering a plan to build an aerial tram connecting two of the city's popular neighborhoods.

"If Hamburg officials give the project a green light, the northern city-state might get a cable car connecting its famed St. Pauli entertainment district -- home to the Reeperbahn red-light district -- with the site of the International Garden Show (IGS) in its Wilhelmsburg district. The spectacular project over the Elbe River is being planned by the Doppelmayr cable car company and musical-production company Stage Entertainment, according to the Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper."

The 3.2 mile tram route could begin operating by 2013.
