Hamburg 2016 - Part 1

Flying To Hamburg

Friday - August 12th 2015

My wife Claudia and I wanted to visit Hamburg for quite some time now, and thanks to an official holiday we had a long weekend coming up, which we used for the short trip to Germany. So Friday after work we headed to the airport and flew with easyjet to Hamburg, where we arrived in the late afternoon. From the airport it was only a short train ride into the city, and soon we checked in into our hotel. We stayed at the Motel One Hamburg am Michel, which was conviniently located in the inner city near the harbour. Our room was nice and clean, like we expected it to be, since we had used that hotel chain many times before. Once we dropped off our luggage, we ordered some welcome drinks at the hotel bar, and later we were on our way to have dinner at Loving Hut. Unfortunately they were closed, and so we ended up at a spätzle restaurant called Zum Spätzle, which offered vegan options. Claudia got vegan cheese spätzle and I had spätzle with lentils. The food was good, but a little bit on the heavy side for dinner. Afterwards we walked to the Landungsbrücken at the river Elbe, but since it started to rain, we returned to the hotel.
