A day in Hamburg

Two weeks ago I spent a couple of days in Hamburg. Although I have never been a huge fan of the city – who knows for which reason – I really loved the days I spent there. It was such a nice trip and in addition, the weather was just amazing. I found some cool spots and places and had a great time exploring the city.

Where I stayed: Schanzenviertel through airbnb. I can highly recommend to stay in this area if you are looking for a vibrant neighborhood with lots of nice cafés, bars, individual little shops and conveniently located when going for further sightseeing in Hamburg. 

Coffee places I liked: Nord Coast Coffee Roastery is located at the Speicherstadt and the barista was super helpful when I had to choose between the different coffee varieties they offer. The café less political is much smaller and a cosy little place for coffee in a more quiet area in the Schanzenviertel. Both cafés offer a great space for sitting outside to relax and enjoy the sun. If you are as lucky enough to get some!

Food I liked: Bok Restaurant is an Asian style restaurant which only uses fresh ingredients and without using any glutamates. They have several locations througout Hamburg, but two already at the Schanzenviertel. I went there twice while I was there because I really liked it! You can also get the food to go if you want.
The shop I liked most: Amara Ajai – a cute little shop with unique pieces. You can find everything from jewellery to fashion and home deco. I found this wonderful and unique watch from the German brand called Kerbholz which creates high quality watches made out of wood.
