Hotels near the town hall (Rathaus)

by louiskam

This couple will spend 2 days in late August. Can't find even one decent 3-stars hotel in this section at all. The big hotel facility to us is a waste. Can someone help us?

Re: Hotels near the town hall (Rathaus)

Have you tried I have just had a look and there seems to be a good selection of hotels in Hamburg at the end of August. There are several three and four star hotels available at quite reasonable prices. Also is a very reputable organisation and as many other VTers will confirm - the reviews are definitely genuine.

At "Venere" and other sites, I did see half a dozen of big name hotels near the Rathaus section. But can't seem to find a regular 3-stars hotel closed-by that area.

What about:

They might be a bit more expensive than average, but well... it's in the city centre of Hamburg. Quite an expensive area.

Re: Hotels near the town hall (Rathaus)

These three hotels mentioned are the type alright but just off a bit from the town hall. Of the three, Hotel Holstenwall seems not too far to walk toward the Rauthus to the east, the port to the south and the red-light district to the west (each within 20 minutes??) Are the routes safe and straight forward though? Thanks for the insight of this.

Re: Hotels near the town hall (Rathaus)

by Elena77

Hotel Holstenwall is just around 2 km away from the Rathaus, so it's pretty easy walking distance. And according to the hotel home page it's just 300 metres to the Reeperbahn (nightlife and red-light district). Can't say anything about the safety, though. But this is the main tourist area of Hamburg and it should be more or less crowded almost any time.

I tentatively booked the Madison Hotel near the Schaarmarkt. Will switch if any preferrable one surface.

Mami's Apple Tree

by tini58de

This is a very personal thing:

after my mother died in 1994, I had a little apple tree planted in memoriam to my mother. It was planted in the backyard of the house where I was living at that time - so it is really very hidden!

The Tower Bar!

by Eilian about The Tower Bar!

Go when the sun is set and you'll get a FANTASTIC view of Hamburg's port at night!
Worth it. You go there for the view, not the people. Go there with someone, it is not a place to flirt. People were chic, but I wasn't. Urban dress code, I guess.

Quick Thai on The Run

by ericaj. about Thai Cowboys

Quick, fast, and in a hurry: the Thai Cowboys expand on the German "Imbiss" concept of eating while standing at tall tables by taking out the sausages and introducing the THAi . When Germans say "fast food" they do indeed mean fast. The concept is to step up to the counter, place your order, gobble down the food at tall waist high tables, then run off to your next appointment . In the past, this imbiss style of eating was limited to German fast foods like sausages and pomme frittes. Later, the Turkish segments of the community caught on by introducing the same concept in some of their eateries. Now, for several years, we have an interesting imbiss alternative in the form of the THAI COWBOYS. Authentic and affordable, for you when have a massive appetite and no time to sit and do the traditional 2 hour European lunch or dinner. Being an imbiss, it wouldn't be reccommended for a cross Hamburg trek for Thai food- there are plenty of restaurants throughout the city for that. However, if you just happen to be strolling the the tragically avante garde and edgy area in St. Pauli known as "The Schanze", then it's well worth a stop and everything is really delicious. The crowd that frequents the place tends to be the 20-40 year old, existential artist/rebel... very interesting looking, spendthrifty, artistically expressive types who wear very well planned mismatched clothing. For appetizers, the Thai chicken wings are pretty fair (3 euro), or the Crab Chips (Krabben chips) just to munch on.

The soups are the standard Thai fare such as Tom Yam Gung, Tim Yam Gai, Curry w/ Beef ( curry mit rindfleisch), Coconut Soup w/ Chicken (kokonuss suppe mit hanchen), and others. Prices range from euro 2-3,50.

Unless there is a salad special for the day, they generally only serve White Cabbage Salad (Weisskohl/Weißkohl salad) or Mixed salad with special sauce (Gemischter Salad mit Soße) for euro 1,80

Chili, Peanut and Curry based dishes with choices of beef, chicken, pork, or tofu range from euro 6,50-7,50 and I've had yet to try anything on the menu that wasn't tasty. This is where you can feel free to be adventurous with your choice but still expect a satisfactory result.

Thai Cowboys also do take-away service.

St. Nikolai - Ruined Tower and War Memorial

by yooperprof

July 1943. The tall spire of St. Nikolai Church serves as an unwitting beacon for pilots of the RAF as they launch "Operation Gommorah," the code name for the massive bombardment of Hamburg and its suburbs. Over the course of the next few days, wave after wave of British bombers dropping thousands of bombs over the city, unleashing deadly devastation and creating massive firestorms. At the end of the week, 43,000 civilians were dead, tens of thousands more injured, and most of Hamburg - including St. Nikolai Church itself - lay in ruins.

(Interestingly enough, St. Nikolai Church had been designed and engineered by a British architect, George Gilbert Scott Sr. (1811-1878), one of the leading lights of the Gothic revival in England. Scott Sr. is perhaps best known as the original architect of the St. Pancras Street Station in London.)

Now, the ruined church is a moving and effective memorial to the war dead in Hamburg. In the crypt is an interesting exhibit of rare photographs showing the devastion that followed the attack. (In Hitler's Germany, it was a capital crime for anyone to take non-official photos of war damage, so pictures of the ruined city are rare.)

Appropriately, there are also photos that show the effect of earlier wartime German attacks upon cities such as Warsaw, Rotterdam, Plymouth and Coventry. I thought that whoever mounted the exhibit did a good job of placing the destruction of Hamburg in a suitable historical context.

You can take an elevation up nearly 150 meters to a viewing platform that offers stunning views of the city, spreading out across the Elbe valley.
