      Ideas for day trips around Hamburg?

      Hamburg Yesterday

      Planning a week in Hamburg over Chrismas. Any idea for one or two day trips (by train or bus)?
      I was thinking of Kiel on the "city" side, or Cuxhaven on the "sea" side....
      I know, it's winter, and there is a lot to see in Hamburg..., but I wouldn't mind a day somewhere else.

      I plan to visit Hamburg on my way to Berlin this winter. But i have just 3 days . Do you think it is enough to get impression? and my German is not much good, do you think that locals still prefer if I speak bad German than good English?

      Trying to identify a cake I ate in Hamburg

      Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg May 19, 2015 at 2:21 PM

      I was in Hamburg last month and ate dinner on the waterfront. The restaurant had a cake, something like Laboersahntorte. It was unbelievable and I would like to find a recipe. Problem is nothing comes up when I search it, so I'm guessing I'm missing part of the name. It had a marzipan covering, used like some people use fondant. Sound familiar to anyone?

      Purchase of HVV Tageskarten

      Hamburg Apr 23, 2015 at 2:48 AM

      I (and two friends) will be staying for 5 days in a budget hotel on Stresemannstrasse in Altona Bahrenfeld. On most days, I think we travel into the city centre by bus, using the M3 Metrobus. Question: how do we buy our HVV Tageskarten? Is there any ticket-automat at 'Bushaltestelle Schützenstraße (Mitte)'? Are there ticket-machines on board Metrobuses? Will it upset the other passengers and the driver if we buy our Tageskarten from the driver...of what is supposed to be a high-speed bus service?

      I am assuming that HVV tickets (as is the case in other cites) are now date&time-stamped at the point of issue, so you can't buy tickets ahead e.g. a day in advance.

      Note that because I can't guarantee that the three of us will stay together all the time, I do not want to buy HVV Gruppenkarten.

      where to stay

      Hamburg Mar 30, 2015 at 9:46 AM

      Hi everybody, I am flying to Hamburg at the beginning of May for 4 nights. I've never been there and would like to get a nice impression of the city, where it is better to stay? In the centre or in which suburbs? I've found nice private b&b but cannot evaluate if the location is convenient for sightseeing, shops or restaurants. Many thanks in advance to everybody willing to answer me.

      Elbtunnel suggestions

      Hamburg Mar 2, 2015 at 2:22 AM

      I am going back to Hamburg in mid-May, for 5 days, having been persuaded by two former work colleagues (who have no German and have never visited Hamburg) to act as translator, organiser and guide. So this may be the first of a few questions...
      Last time I walked through the Elbtunnel, it was being refurbished and ther were no cars. I assume the work is now complete (correct?) and that we would be sharing the tunnel with cars. Anyway, has anyone any suggestions for what to do once you emerge from the tunnel ion the southern bank of the Elbe? Last time, I took in the view of the city across the river, walked past the various works entrances to Blohm + Voss, and looked for a memorial to the prisoners from Neuengamme who had worked as forced-labourers in the shipyards (I never found it. Does it exist? Where exactly is it?), My main question: Is there any 'route' back to 'central' Hamburg, involving a reasonable walk and/or public transport, other than a stroll back through the tunnel?

      I am going to Hamburg at the 27th of December. I was wondering at which club i have to go to (techno). I don't want to go to the Reeperbahn of other touristic places, but to a club where the Hamburg people are going to. And maybe you know some nice places to go with new years eve?

      At last... does anybody knows a good restaurant with German food?

      I would like to go to Bremen for one day to see the market and the city.
      My plan is; arrive on Friday, see the city and the market. Saturday go to Bremen and come back. Sunday, continuing seeing Hamburg.

      Do you think I have enogh time for the two cities? Or should I just stay focused in Hamburg?

      Advice for the three days are welcomed.

    • Hamburg nightlife

      Hamburg Jun 26, 2014 at 7:23 AM

      Hi all,

      I will be visiting Hamburg in September with a group of friends. There will be 4 of us going and we are in the age bracket of 25-29. We are coming over to catch a football match and enjoy some nightlight in a European city. I am obviously aware of the Reeperbhan and have an idea of what it could offer. But what else does the city have to offer at night? What other areas should we be looking at? We will be looking for good pubs to sample some fine German beers then as the night goes on we will be looking for bars and then nightclubs.

      Is there more to the Reeperbhan then just the red light area and strip clubs?

      What time is the busiest and best time to go out? (I.e is it like the UK where places shut at 3am?)

      Hotels near Hamburg in Norderstedt

      Hamburg Mar 25, 2014 at 4:18 PM

      I have previously posted this in the little used Norderstedt Forum where there are no active members - it is not a tourist destination!

      We have a very longstanding friendship with a local family and have made many visits to Nordferstedt. and also have friends in Hamburg.
      We always drive to Germany from the UK but make good use of public transport for local visits.

      We are planning to visit our now elderly friend who no longer has guest accommodation at her home in Norderstedt so we will need an hotel base.

      No VT Reviews - only TA opinions.

      I would much prefer personal recommendation from a member - perhaps one who like us visits Norderstedt to see family or friends, or on business..

      Not looking for budget or luxury, just a good, comfortable middle range base for 4/5 nights.
      I would be so grateful for any advice.

      Toddler-friendly Restaurant in Hamburg - any suggestions?

      Hamburg Jan 1, 2014 at 10:50 PM

      Does anyone know a toddler-friendly restaurant in Hamburg? One of our favourite places here in Mannheim has a large section for kids, with a small slide, lots of toys and some extra low tables for the parents to sit close-by.
      Is there anything similar in Hamburg, apart from MacDonalds?
      And does anyone have any suggestions of what to do with an almost three-year-old? Wunderland may still be too exciting. Is there an indoor playground maybe?
