    Sternschanze in Hamburg

    The last post on Hamburg, for this time. Hamburg is made up of many smaller areas and all of them have their own charm but it was Sternschanze that I particularly liked slightly more. I haven’t seen all the other areas but spending time here I thought it was really cool. It’s a chilled area (minus the G20 protest we got caught in) with lots of fun shops and bars to enjoy. During our visit, it was evident that this area of Hamburg is really against the G20. Everywhere we looked, shop notes, graffiti arts and other signs were telling us how unwelcome the G20 is. One of the buildings…

    What and Where to Eat in Hamburg

    It’s time for another Hamburg post. After covering where to stay and what to see, I thought it’s high time for a food post. I feature food a lot on this blog anyways and let’s face it, don’t we all love food a little bit more when on holiday? ­čÖé During mine and S stay in Hamburg we covered all the food times at least once: breakfast, lunch, dinner and a late night snack so this post should give you ideas for a full day on where and what to eat in Hamburg. Breakfast at Nord Coast Coffee Roastery Nord Coast is located on the canal near the Speicherstadt area.…

Despite a short visit, we managed to tick off quite a lot of things on the list of sightseeing I wanted to see. The best bit, they’re all free! Elbphilharmonie Opera House On the afternoon we arrived, we first made our way down to the harbour and the Opera House – Elbphilharmonie. I can’t say I particularly like the architecture of this building, I┬áthink it’s the shape that bothers me.┬áThe contrast between different materials and styles in buildings have always fascinated me but somehow…

  • Sir Nikolai Hotel Hamburg

    Sir Nikolai Hotel in Hamburg

    I’ve only been back from my holiday less than two weeks but it feels like ages ago I visited Hamburg. I spent my last two days of holiday here with my fave Dane! Why she’s my fave would take up a whole separate blog post so I won’t go into detail now. I can however reveal one of her great qualities and that’s that she’s a hell of a good planner and expert in finding good deals. The hotel we stayed in in Hamburg is proof of this. Sir Nikolai Hotel is the most beautiful hotel I have stayed in, I could happily move in for good. Serious interior goals!!!…
