The moment I planned my 2018 short trip to Hamburg, I was definitely open to experience a new and contrasting city. I knew the energy and modernism, as well as the „directness“ flair that awaited me, and that is exactly the reason why I choose this amazing destination for my autumn getaway this year.
Although we have two employees who are specialists on the city, I wanted to revive my local knowledge and spent a long weekend in this great city at the beginning of October.
I got fantastic help from my friend Florian Gerdes from the Hamburg Convention Bureau, who graciously sent me a very detailed list of „not to miss“ spots in the city.
The character of my trip was very varied. For once, I wanted to unplug from the very difficult and work loaded summer routine. And on the other hand, I wanted to rediscover the city for future events.
The last time I was in the city was already 5 years ago. The city still looks the same, but more polished and shiny than what I had in my memory. We were very lucky to find a fantastic northern weather, where all bricks and glass presented their best faces!
Hamburg is known by its many concerts and show performances and I had the chance to combine my visit with a fantastic concert of U2! The location Barclay Card Arena was vibrating and full and the performance of these great artists was just amazing!
