Sidetrip in Hamburg

It was only a sidetrip we had in Hamburg. Our main destination was in the Baltic regions. It was quite a long trip from Bavaria, Germany to this city of  Hamburg. It took us around 10 hours to go there including the stops and the picking up of passengers along the way. Our two hours sightseeing was not really enough to see a lot of sights but at least I was happy  to step-on  in this city.

Hamburg is officially known as  the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. It is the second largest city in Germany after  Berlin and the 15th largest  Bundesländer or federal state in  this country.

Hamburg is known as  “Germany’s  Gateway  to the World”.  It  is because of its location and also being the largest port in Germany. It is  also the second busiest port in Europe.

During our visit, our bus driver drove us around the city. After that, he dropped us in Landungsbrücken , also referred to as the St. Pauli Landing Bridges and St. Pauli Piers which is part  of the Hamburg Harbour.

After half an hour of walking along the harbour, we proceeded to the Reeperbahn in Sankt Pauli.  It  took us around 20 minutes to walk there including photo stops. This area is probably one of the most famous red-light districts in the world.  I guess you know what I mean when I say  red-light district.

The rest of our two hours sightseeing, I spent it for souvenir shopping. It is  quite expensive in Hamburg. I just bought some postcards and  a fridge magnet.

There are still  a lot of sights to see in Hamburg. I want to visit it again in the future.
