No matter how short the trip to Hamburg is, a stroll on the Reeperbahn, Hamburg most popular area for amusements of different kinds, is a must. We agreed in advance that we didn’t want to hop from club to club but stay put in Olivias Show Club.
There is no such thing as bad weather. Only inappropriate clothing. So, despite it spitting with rain, we put on our most comfortable shoes, got the umbrellas out and embarked on an expedition through Hamburg. Mostly on foot with the occasional metro or train journey.
A harbour tour in Hamburg can be very expensive. But there is a cheap alternative to explore the waters of Hamburg.
People of Hamburg are proud of their “Michel”, one of their most popular landmarks. Michel is short for St Michael’s Church. It is one of the most important baroque churches in northern Germany.The Michel Hamburg is a Protestant church dedicated to Archangel Michael. A bronze figurine of him can be found above the church portal. He is depicted as the victor of the battle against Satan.
We got some very confused (but friendly!) looks when we, a group of nine ladies and their bags, wanted to check in at the desk of the Quality Hotel Ambassador Hamburg at 8 in the morning.
