  • Personal Memories and Impressions

    Hamburg Favorites

    The best thing about Hamburg? How about when you go to stay with your old college teammates in Hamburg they have also called up the guys playing American football in Braunschweig as well. Two nights of good partying and catching up with people. By the way, catch a Hamburg Blue Devils game while your in Hamburg.

  • Useful Information

    Hamburg Favorites

    Losing my wallet and U.S. passport! The ultimate nightmare but do not despair: There are NO longer any emergency passport services for U.S. citizens in Hamburg. It is helpful to have a copy of one's passport AND essential to file a report with the local Police station (the local police as very cordial and usually have decent English skills)....

  • The Port

    Hamburg Favorites

    Deep-water Elbe, port cranes, sea vessels, predictably, made an impression of Hamburg, as one of the largest ports of the world. The convenient quay along the river, crowds of tourists and picturesque views at architecture monuments and quarters of buildings framing them made an impression about Hamburg, as about tourist sight.

  • Reeperbahn/Red Light District

    Hamburg Favorites

    This famous red-light district is the best attraction in the city... There are so many erotic clubs, but even theaters, clubs, bars. It is the quarter where the Beatles, one of my favorite groups, began their international career. It was a pity not to find this house during my visit at this strange and attractive place...

  • Binnen and Aussenalster

    Hamburg Favorites

    I finally made it to Rathausmarkt after walking all over the place from University to the boats to the water. A charming place, with palm trees. Couldn't believe it! I thought this was a northern city! The Rathaus is impressive and I read that it's Neo-Renaissance style. Yep, that's what it looks like. What I loved most is how people here go about...

  • Views and buildings

    Hamburg Favorites

    Gertrudenkirchhof is a small public square (on the site of St. Gertrude's chapel) just off the main pedestrian artery, Mönckebergstrasse. Here, color and shapes provide interest for what would otherwise be an undistinguished urban facade.

  • City Centre Shopping

    Hamburg Favorites

    Colonnaden, Bleichenhof, Gänsemarkt-Passage, Galleria, Hanse-Viertel,... All those lanes around the inner part of Hamburg are very popular shopping streets and malls where you can get rid of your Euros, bank-accounts,… Wonderful alternative to a rainy weather because most of the streets are under roofs! Don’t go there on Sundays… You will feel like...

  • Arts and Culture

    Hamburg Favorites

    Many buildings are very close together in Hamburg to save space and therefore share common walls. Bulidings which have outside walls often rent them to companies as advertising space. Some on the other hand take a slightly less commercial route and have large murals done on the sides of them. Several of these come to mind right away. The first is...

  • Rathaus (Town Hall)

    Hamburg Favorites

    In the small basin in front of the Rathaus stands this monument to soldiers from Hamburg who perished in the First World War. The sad irony is that many more people from Hamburg died here, in the city, in a single week of bombing in July 1943.

  • Canals

    Hamburg Favorites

    Hamburg is said to have even more bridges than Venice - and one reason are definitely all those fleets. A Fleet is a Hamburg city canal - and the city is full of those canals. You can go on a Fleet Fahrt - a canal cruise or enjoy one of the cafés that are built on floating pontons or just walk across those hundred of bridges... Whichever way you...

  • Michaeliskirche

    Hamburg Favorites

    Hamburg's Michaeliskirche is surprisingly pretty for the north of Germany, which is not so known for beautiful churches. It is without a doubt Hamburg's most famous church, to be found close to the city center and the harbour.

  • Outside Hamburg

    Hamburg Favorites

    If you are in Hamburg it would be a shame not visiting a town Lubeck. It takes about 50 minutes to get there by train. Train leaves from Hauptbahnhof every hour. I went there to visit the first German ice and snow sculpture festival and it was really fantastic! Please take a look at my Ice World travelogue!

    Watching the huge ships and little boats in the port, dreaming of far away places and times gone by, waiting for someone to give me a ticket or a job on the ship ;-)
