“The Kate Winslet of Cities”

published 01/01/2005

ProSomewhere to practice my Deutsch

ConsAttitude; Attractions (or lack thereof)

Airbrushed beyond belief to make it look better on paper than it is in real life. I like cities where the airport is not that far removed from the city centre, so we were off to a flying start in Hamburg when less than half an hour after landing and €20 lighter we found ourselves a our hotel...

“Hummel! Hummel!”

published 11/03/2009

ProWater and ships everywhere!

ConsThe weather is not always nice.

Last May I stayed in Hamburg for 24 hours, my train arrived at 3 pm and I left the following day at about the same time. Can one get a more than superficial impression of such a big city, the second largest German city (~ 1,8 million inhabitants) after Berlin, in such a short time? I think so...

Pro Attractive city, great shopping, good restaurants

Cons Weather?

Hamburg is an attractive city in North Germany. With a population of 1.8 million, it is second only to Berlin in size. It is also the biggest industrial city, with an area of 755 square kilometres. However, whilst the docks thrive with its busy trade the town has not been robbed of its natural...

Arrived central Hamburg tourist information looking for a hotel for two nights (it was 3pm and the city was in the middle of a huge Disco/music fest attracting 350,000 people). Staff at info centre were wonderful, despite being incredibly busy. We were booked into the Crowne Plaza at an amazing...

ProEasy to reach. Mixed culture

ConsNeed to be relatively open minded

A city of many cultures that permits individuals and groups to ‘express’ themselves in their own unique ways. The people there are very liberal and enjoy each others different ideas and cultures. From parks and gardens to the docklands and shopping district, you will all find something appealing...

Consnot much to do

Never having been to Hamburg I thought the offer of a cheap weekend visit was one not to be missed. The visit, therefore was one for pleasure as oppsed to business. It was also during daylight hours and not when tyhe fun starts, or does it? The city centre is not far from the port area which is...

Hamburg as a city is often sadly overlooked by people, who pass throguh it en route to somewhere else. The city is vibrant, clean, and with a great deal happening in it. There are countless bars for the young, and the shopping is amongst teh best in Germany. Away from the centre, it is possible...

“Price crash tastic”

published 27/07/2000

ProPrice crash can mean cheap drinks

ConsCocktails not to everyone's liking

Wall Street is a great bar for young people, serving a wide range of cocktails, with the added bonus that when you settle up for the night the price crash (their equivalent of the Happy Hour) will bring the price down slightly. By how much no-one knows until they get teh bill, however of a good...
