    Anyone for a Hamburger?

    August 10 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Next stop Hamburg.

    Booking the train trip was rather confusing for an amateur due to track construction work so we opted to fly. After a propeller plane across the Alps to Zagreb, a small jet to Hamburg and now another propeller plane to Hamburg, all parking a bus trip away from the terminal building, I am looking forward to getting back to real aeroplanes. Our next plane will be a bit bigger - an A380.

    There are things you must do in Hamburg, including:
    Reeperbahn in St Pauli, famous for its nightclubs where the Beatles played in their formative years, and its other "night" clubs.
    Curried sausages.
    Its biggest tourist attraction- Miniatur Wunderland.

    And things well worth doing, such as:
    Relax a bit watching the boats on Alster Lakes while the live jazz band plays at the cafe.
    See the uglier side of war (it's all ugly, some of it really ugly). Hamburg was almost completely blown off the planet in the last days of WW2.
