I have been lucky enough to spend my time in Hamburg with a friend, who has just returned from travelling around Australia, Asia and New Zealand for a year. Nothing like having a local to show you around!
It was a pretty bleak old day, but the rain held off enough for us to wander around the harbour in the morning. I was quite surprised that there was harbour here, as Hamburg is not on the coast! But a large river runs to the city, which cargo ships can travel down into the massive docks.
The remainder of our day was pretty cruisy, but I was so grateful to have my friend show me around her city. She even learnt something too on our bus tour! It never hurts to be a tourist in your own city.
