So, a belated report on Hamburg. We didn’t exactly have internet there, and since we were only there for two days we spent most of our time sightseeing.
Well.. it’s different from Berlin, I can tell you that! For one, their traffic lights are quite insistent
It’s a bit like a combination of Rotterdam and Amsterdam. The Reeperbahn is well known for being the sailor’s nirvana of deviant pleasure. But there’s lots of water and harbor stuff going on. Hamburg has an u-bahn, but it also has a mode of transportation that is even cooler. Boats! The boats in the harbor have a sort of bus-line thing going on. And they go fast, very fast. A ‘Hamburg card’ gets you free access to all of them, in addition to the u- and s bahn. Yay!
We also visited the Beatles-museum. I’ve always thought of myself as a fan and connoisseur, but I never knew their career took flight in Hamburg. Also, who are Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best? I just never knew..
