New Hamburg Spots!

After Hamburg was the G20 spot last week and everyday in the media, it’s time to calm down a bit in the city. Since I realized that many of my old Hamburg recommendations are not existing anymore (I promise to update those posts soon), it’s time to share with you some new favorite Hamburg spots of mine. Here they are…

Restaurants (Book a table in all of these, if you plan to eat there!):

Brüdigams… My all-time favorite in Hamburg! Classic cuisine with a modern twist. Always delicious!

Ti Breizh… Breton! Incredible tasty galettes and crepes!

Zum Spätzle… Cute little space that serves Swabian dishes.

Kleine Brunnenstraße 1… Little restaurant that’s perfect for special occasions (e.g. Valentine’s Day, Birthday dinners,…).

Bars

Vineyard… Perfect for having a glass of wine with good friends on the end of a stressful week.

Le Lion… The most sophisticated bar in Hamburg.

Coffee

Less Political… Located in the Sternschanze, this place is always crowded with young and hip people.

Black Delight… Small place that makes delicious coffee.

Ice-Cream

Luicella’s… An incredible variety of flavors!

Eisliebe… Always a good reason for a bike tour to Ottensen.

Eisprinzessinnen… Again: An incredible variety of flavors!

I wish you a wonderful July week! Enjoy the warm days :)!

Why I Love Hamburg: Planten un Blomen’s Water-Light Concerts!

PB2The illuminated fountains! All Pics by Franzi.

Hamburg’s biggest park has the funny name Planten un Blomen (“plants and blooms”). During the summer months there’s a nightly fountain show, playing with light and music, the Wasserlichtkonzerte (water-light concerts)! It’s absolutely worth to watch (and hear). I attended it for the first time last week and was smitten! Why wasn’t I there before? Now I have found one more reason why I love this city with its funny names for places (Here’s one more: I live at the Schlump, which stands for “sludge”!) and wonderful places.

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – have a colorful one!
