A three hour bus ride took us to Hamburg last weekend for a visit with our good friend Charlotte. Although Hamburg is often described as generally rainy and wet, we had a clear sunny day to walk around this beautiful city. We explored the Venetian arcade and Rathaus area, had lunch in Sternschanze at Bulleri, and enjoyed the festivities at the world’s sexiest Christmas market in Hamburg’s red light district. We also quickly became fans of Franzbrötchen, a flattened cinnamon roll, that I strongly suggest you try if you find yourself in town. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the trip.
