Arkadencafé

Restaurant

Quote:
We are normally not the kind of people that go into a bar for a drink but as it was nice weather and the streets were full of life we decided to go into a bar. The bar we found looked busy and nice enough with normal tables and even some tables outside. Because of the nice weather the seats outside were already taken so we had to go inside.Inside was a really good atmosphere with relaxing music which wasn’t too loud so you could actually hold a conversation with each other. The bar was quiet large and they had three staff members serving everybody. Considering the size of the place i thought that was a bit on the low side but maybe they hadn’t anticipated that it would be this busy....Read More

The Oberhafen kantine has been around since 1925 and since then it has been popular because of the delicious food they serve, atleast that was something we heard. Our friends have been to this restaurant before and when we decided to visit this town in the north of Germany, they advised us to visit this restaurant. The restaurant is located in the city center of Hamburg and is in the historic part of the city.The Oberhafen kantine is a very traditional restaurant and serves mostly traditional dishes as hamburgers, roastbeef and ofcourse the bratwurst which is famous in Germany.

The restaurant is housed in a windowless tower. The tower is called a so-called bunker round, or as air defense tower. These towers were built in 1939-1941, eleven were then at the time, nine of which still exist today. It was named after the Dortmund Zombeck Paul, who was also patented this design. This air defense towers were actually designed only for 600 people, but found the time of the bombing raids over 1000 people in their place. Often these towers were built at major intersections."Good evening" we heard when we went through the entrance to the restaurant, came in the entrance area, one can see the thickness of the walls. When we had closed the door behind us, we stood in a narro...Read More

Magellan Terraces

Attraction | "Magellan Terrassen"

Quote:
Ferdinand Magellan was born in 1480 as the son of a nobleman in Portugal. Since his earliest youth he was thrilled by stories of Christopher Columbus and Vasco da Gama. As a sailor and captain, he crossed as the first European to the Pacific Ocean. On his journey he was on expedition in search of a Seehandelsweg westwards to the Moluccas. Many visitors do not need local knowledge to visit the terraces. There is a direct bus from Hamburg's main railway station. The bus starts from 6 Hamburger Bahnhof ZOB, which starts directly at the main station. The trip takes only about 10 minutes. From a visit to the car I personally advise against because the parking facilities are particularly not goo...Read More
