So, here is a round-up of everything to do in Hamburg. The only thing we didn’t find is cheesecake that’s worth writing about… I guess we will have to go again 😉
If you can manage to time it right and get to Hamburg for the Hafenfest you are in for a treat. It’s the biggest port festival in the world and the boats even dance ballet. Yes, you read that correctly, the boats dance together. You have to see it to believe it. You might even come across the Titanic!
Every May, Hamburg Port celebrates its anniversary. Happy 824th anniversary Hamburg Port!!
How do I love thee Hamburg? Let me count the ways! As an expat it’s really easy after a while to just focus on the negative aspects of your new culture or country. And the thing is, we really do need to get things off our chest sometimes and we need other expats to complain to—this life ain’t easy folks! Every little day to day activity is more difficult in a foreign country, and even though many of us Canadians are descended from Europeans, there is still a rather elephant-sized cultural mountain between us at times. So, since Thanksgiving just passed (well the US one anyway) and Christmas is coming, I thought I would do my best to put on my hat of positivity and focus some of my favorite things about living in Hamburg, Germany.
