Don't sit at home.
I think it was my last summer holiday when I visited Hamburg with my family. We travelled by train and well, we drove about 7 hours nonstop. So, the first thing we did was searching for food and we ended up in a Chinese restaurant (don’t ask me why). It was really delicious and its location was behind the big Saturn-Store. I forgot the name, sorry.
Well, in Hamburg, there’s a city guide bus tour for those people who just want to check the sightseeing spots and which is perfect for us, because we were there for only one day.
We visited the the miniature wonderland and even though it’s just miniature houses and trains which drive around, it was quite fun. It’s huge inside and there are so many things to discover and so much to see. If you love watching miniature trains and you love details and artwork (realistic houses and streets, mountains and so on), I really recommend you to visit that.
In Hamburg, there’s also a ship in which you can go inside for free, it’s not really worth it. You just can look at it, so if you like that, it’s fine, but it’s not a must seen.
One thing I really regret is, that i didn’t really visited the docks. As you may know, Hamburg is famous for being a port-city. Well, I don’t know if you really can check the port out, but there are so many big cargo ships, it was really amazing.
Also I didn’t really try the specialities of Hamburg. But I have to say, that it isn’t really special for me, because we almost eat the same things as here in Hamburg like sausages, french fries, potato and things like that, so if you’re from another country than Germany or Switzerland, I recommend you to taste those things.
So, overall we didn’t do a lot of things. Just walking in the city and looking around. It was lovely, but not special. So, my rating for this city is
