We are pleased to share with you our recent stay in Hamburg
During our trip we explored the city and experienced many interesting activities. Here is an overview of our programme.
Thursday: We arrived in Hamburg by train and checked into our hotel. In the evening, we enjoyed a free program in small groups and took a walking tour of the city, which took us to the Reeperbahn, a popular district for nightlife.
Friday: Our tour continued through the administrative part of the city where we admired the architecture of buildings such as the Chilehaus, Afrikahaus, Zurich-Haus and Asiahaus. We also visited the Speicherstadt, the Jan Fedder promenade and walked through the Elb tunnel. During lunch we enjoyed a traditional German pizza. We spent the afternoon walking around the Philharmonie and took a cruise on the Louisiana Star, which gave us a new perspective of Hamburg. In the evening we walked through the new Altona Alstadt neighborhood, which used to be a brownfield. At the end of the day we enjoyed sitting together and sampling currywurst and fish sandwiches.
Saturday: a guided walk by Guiding Architects took us to Hafen City, a modern urban district built on a former harbour. Here we admired the Elb Tower and stopped at the light boxes at the Hafen City Universität stop. We ended our tour at the Der Spiegel building. After a busy day, we relaxed in the gardens in the city centre where we enjoyed a traditional schnitzel and a good beer. In the evening we moved on to the hostels where we enjoyed a great party with a DJ.
Sunday: Some of us decided to visit the Fish Market while others joined the train departure.
