We have just one day in Hamburg. What would be the single best place to see?
I am trying to contact the following Avis Car Rental agency, but would like to do it via email so I can get specific questions answered regarding splitting a 39 day rental into 2 contracts so that I can use my US credit card to cover CDW. Avis International said that this was doable, but the last word is with the local rental location. I cannot wait until I arrive to get answers to my questions.
Does anyone know how I can get the email address for this location?
Possibly someone local in Hamburg call them and ask for the email address?
It would be much appreciated.

i am planning to apply for college next semester in hamburg university and i looked up the rental student rooms inside the city and found it to be rare and expensive so i was thinking of alternatives in the rural parts around the city
considering i'll have to work and study, my question is how much will it be convenient for me?
also, if the price difference will be worth considering this alternative?

Hello VT friends, I post this forum question in order to find out a bit more about outsider artist Helmut Nimczewski. I know that he was born in 1945 or 1946 in Hamburg, and that he often takes photos of the city. I am grateful for any help. Best regards, Vladimir
I'm trying to find a destination to visit for a Christmas citybreak. I'm obviously governed by the cost of the flight and had previously considered Frankfurt, but after a recent posting, have discounted this (thanks again for all the responses). Hamburg is another consideration (as the flight's within my price range), but I don't know much about it. I want to go when the Christmas Market is there so obviously any views on this would be great. As many people pointed out to me previously, Frankfurt is not considred to be a tourist destination, but I'm not sure how Hamburg would be described? I know it's a port city but I don't know anyone who has visited it as a tourist. Are there any special must-see sights, areas to be avoided etc. ANY views would be most helpful. Thanks again Louise We're thinking of going for eiher a weekend or a couple of nights midweek.

I'm organising a girls weekend to Hamburg in August and am looking for some fun and exciting things we can do on the Sunday and Monday. Although wandering around Hamburg, seeing the sights, shopping etc would be OK, I would also like to arrange something a bit different too. Is there anything nearby that will get our adrenalin going? Zip-lining perhaps or something similar? We're happy to travel out of Hamburg (although not so far that we waste all our time travelling)but we won't have a car. We are your average 40+ year olds so not really into clubbing anymore but like a good dance and to have a good, laughter filled night out. Here in the UK a couple of us do ceroc dancing which is a mixture of jive and salsa - is there anything similar in Hamburg? Any ideas for good but in-expensive restaurants? I'm looking for quirky ideas that will make our trip unusual and memorable.
Hi, I like to spend 3-4 days sometimes in May in Hamburg to visit places like The Ship museum, Speicherstadt, Fischmarket etc. I will be on my own (retired non-smoking male travelling by car) and ideally looking to find a nice, clean and safe place (Zimmer) maybe with breakfast or without, internet connection and parking included if possible. Perhaps close enough to the places mentioned as to not have to need my car to get around and maybe just use public transport. Not interested much in nightlife, but clean surroundings and affordable. Thank you all! Cheers, Norbert
Could someone suggest a website ot other for finding information, especially effects of the Second World war, on this village please. My friend,s ancestors came from here but she doesn,t speak German so searching for stuff on the web has been difficult for her. She has a book called Chronik der Gemeinde Schnakenbek which mainly talks about the post war years. My friend,s father plans on visiting Germany this year to obtain more information, if he already had some facts to begin with , this would be an enormous bonus. Thank you.
does anyone have any idea where we could find riding clothes and equipment in Hamburg for my daughter ?(age 8)
Hello all. Some persons of my company are going to stay for a long term in Hamburg, probably more than 8 months. We have known the news today, and we want to find one or two apartments to rent. Sometimes there will be 4 persons, but at some moments there may be even 6 or 8 persons. They will be working in Amsinckstrasse 45. Being at a walkable distance from there would be great, but if it is an expensive neigborhood I guess that my company would want a not so expensive location depending if there is good public transport connection. I would apreciate any info about websites to find such apartments, and the public transport system...thank you very much!
