Over the Christmas break we caught the train down to Hamburg to spend a few days there and to see my husband’s brother and his girlfriend. It was an easy 2 trains down there (I am convinced that train travel is the BEST mode of transport with families!) We stayed in a lovely airbnb apartment in the lively neighbourhood Eimsbüttel and spent our days exploring the city as well as the usual playground and cafe hopping.
Here’s some pictures from our trip
the Cohens love train travel, Hamburg: as watery as Venice, you can’t have a Christmas trip without Glühwein, the old and the new, the beautiful Rathus, two sets of brothers, the boys loved the Planten un Blomen (free entry), the best way to get around Hamburg, the Rathus, Miniatur Wunderland is well worth visiting, family cuddles, sunset (at 3.30 pm), our wonderful airbnb apartment, more water, thanks to tripadvisor I found this great restaurant: affordable, kid-friendly, tasteful design AND no waiters – we ordered on tablets which was a hit with the kids! (last three pictures) – and no Hamburg trip is complete without eating a Hamburger!
