journeyPod is taking our listeners to one of the most beautiful cities in Germany - Hamburg. The 2nd largest city in Germany and 2nd largest port in Europe, Hamburg is a contemporary and historic city with so much to offer!
Theatre buffs will enjoy the Lion King, set in a truly marvelous theatre built especially for this musical, attend a ballet at the Hamburg State Opera or watch any of the theatre shows currently touring the city.
Take the kids to the Tierpark Hagenbeck, founded in 1907 and labeled as the first zoo with moated, barless enclosures.
Shopaholics have found their heaven at the Moenckebergstrasse, Jungfernstieg and the Europa Passage (The largest city centre shopping mall in Europe).
Float along the Alster on a canoe, dine at any of the fabulous restaurants, bar-hop in the Reeperbahn nightlife district or witness true sportsmanship during a soccer game at the HSH Nordbank Arena.
The Hamburger Dom is North Germany's biggest funfair, held 3 times a year. Make sure to check to see when its going to be in the city - so much fun!
The trendiest boutique hotel in Hamburg is the Empire Riverside Hotel. Relax in style with a panoramic view of the Hamburg Harbour, mingle with the A-listers at 20up or order room service from a room you will never want to leave! Just steps away from Hamburg's nightlife district - The Empire Riverside Hotel is THE place to stay in the city.
Let's listen in on our chat with Kati Bandow, Assistant Director of Sales for the hotel.
