Top travel tips | Hamburg, Germany
So you want to go to Hamburg do you? Good choice. Here are my top travel tips...
Go and read this and then this blog post from J for Jen. They are the main reason I ended up in Hamburg for my birthday celebrations.
Looking for somewhere quirky to stay in Hamburg? Always book an Airbnb. This is where we stayed and it was awesome.
You know I'm a massive Airbnb fan after some amazing apartment finds in California and Berlin last year.
| Where to visit
Go to St. Michaelis church and climb (Yes, climb - don't take the lift you wuss) the stairs up to the 106 meter high platform for the best view of Hamburg. Think 360° panoramic view of the city centre, the harbour and everything in between.
One hell'uva a way to get your bearings.
| Start walking
Pack your New Balance trainers, Dr Marten lace-ups or your new over the knee boots that are really, really comfy and go exploring. Everywhere. There aren't enough blog posts to write what a great city Hamburg is.
