For the 5th time already, I attended the congress “bewegte Kindheit” (moving childhood) in Osnabrück. Up until now, I only walked back and forth between the castle, several university buildings and some gyms without paying too much attention to the city. This time, things went a little differently.
The train station in Spandau is pretty easy to navigate. It only has 6 train tracks on three platforms. Platforms 1 and 2 are for the “S-Bahn”, the regional trains to and from the city. Platform 3 and 4 are for trains leaving Berlin and 5 and 6 for trains going into Berlin. Relatively straightforward.
A congress brought us to Osnabrück for two nights. I looked for a reasonably priced hotel near the train station and I found the Ibis Hotel Osnabrück.
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.
