Overview

Quote:
Hamburg is a paradise for shopping, business and entertainment. Go shopping in the hundreds of stores located in Jungfernstieg; check out the city skyline, and, if you dare, do bungee jumping from the top of the Fernsehturm (TV tower); walk through the beautiful Planten un Blomen park; visit the fairytale houses and charming cafes of the elegant suburb of Blankenese; visit Altona; walk around the Aussenalster (the biggest of the two lakes in the city) on the sunset; checkout the busy port. Hamburg is also know for its great cultural tradition: poets like Heine; composers like Haendel, and groups like the Beatles have been to the city and made history. People from all over Germany go to Hambur...Read More

Hamburg Fischmarkt

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "FISCHMARKT"

Quote:
Every Sunday really early in the morning, right by the port, a very interesting event takes place: the Fischmarkt (fishmarket). So the game plan is to go have fun on Saturday night (so you don't have to wake up early) and then head straight to the Fischmarkt around 5 am. Once you are in there, you can get fresh fruit or try one of the many typical seafood dishes like a 'North Sea Shrimp Sandwich' (I strongly recommend it.). There are also souvenir stands so you can get small boats in a bottle or T-shirts; beer stands, etc. It's a very lively market. Don't miss it if you happen to be in Hamburg on a Sunday. And when you're finished visiting the market, you can head to one of the Kneipe (small bars) to ...Read More

BISMARCK BAD

Story/Tip

Quote:
Address: Right in front of the Altona Bahnhof ( train station) on the way to the Mercado.

This is a place where you can enjoy - all year long - swimming pools, saunas, hot showers,in-door tanning, gym, or just relax and read for a while. It is like a mini-resort in the middle of town, but with something particular: Most of it is for the FKK (Freikoerperkultur), which means it's a nude bath. So if you don't have a problem with nudism, take a towel and enjoy. You'll have a great time. It's a good opportunity for relaxing and maybe recovering some energy to move along.

MEDIEVAL MARKETS

Best Of IgoUgo

Story/Tip

Quote:
These markets are a great chance to remember that although Hamburg is a rather modern city, it happens to be 1200 years old. They are very interesting events, where you get to try local beer and dishes (prepared the medieval way), see a little of the traditions from the Germans of the Middle Ages,enjoy medieval music shows and buy 'medieval' handicrafts and costumes. It's also a great chance to get to know the locals. People may have the first impression that Hamburger people are cold and unfriendly but in events like this one, you'll get to see the warmth and friendliness of the locals. Unfortunately these markets aren't permanent, so you have to ask the locals or look in the local paper...Read More

ALSTERWASSER

Best Of IgoUgo

Story/Tip

Quote:
Alsterwasser is a typical Hamburger drink. I think they sell it bottled, but you can also make it yourself. You can do it with half a glass of beer (preferably Holstein made in Hamburg), and half a glass of a clear soft drink (like Sprite). Pour the soft drink first, take the gas out shaking a spoon inside the class, and then pour the beer. It's delicious, and accompanied with a Currywurst (a frankfurter with curry sauce) or any other local dish that you can find almost anywhere in city, you'll have the perfect combination.
