Hamburg has a special meaning to me :
I came here quite often as a child, because my mother spent her childhood in Bergedorf ( on my pic: Bergedorfer Schloss)
Later-on Hamburg was the home-port of M/S Vistafjord , while I was working there and hamburg used to be the best place for shopping and relaxing a bit.
In April 2006 I came back to Hamburg in order to take pics of M/S Freedom of the Seas, the biggest cruiseship in the world...

    Hrebertstrasse is very fascinating! It's the "most you get of" Reeperbahn. However, i like the nice pubs on the square the most. More tips on http://www.reeperbahn.me

    To understand Hamburg and the life there, you have to be born there. I was born there but don't live there, very sad. Sorry the angrytourist didn't research the Reeperbahn, in the olden days it wa strictly for the sailors etc.

    Reeperbahn is an aweful place, dont waste your time. BE VERY CAREFUL. The restaurants and bars will try to fleece you for ever last cent you have typically by making you buy the girls drinks and then charging extortionist prices.

    Excellent tips! I never realized there was a Brahms Museum in Hamburg, and I didn't know about the "Welcome-Hoeft" at Schulau. Great that your mother took a photo of your ship leaving in 1978! And that's a very good warning tip about DVK GmbH!

    Hi, just been to a place called Suzannestrasse and found colourful paintings on walls of houses, shops there as in your Things to do 'Hafenstrasse'. Is it the same place or somewhere nearby. Since I'm new here, couldn't make it out.
