2017 is just starting out … and took the opportunity to discover some new place. Middle of december, returned from Chile and back to work… 3days off scheduled(3-5/01/17),excellent! Working on New Year’s day has advantages:)! An hour searching on the net for cheapy flights (Kevin O’Leary’s Ryanair:) ) and hostels brought me to the second biggest city in Germany: Hamburg! A city trip destination on the rise!
A few hours sleeping, woke up and catched the first train from my city Oostende to Brussels Airport. Very convenience flight, 8.35am departure time and 9.45 arrival time at theHamburg Airport. The hostel( MAC Hostel) I’ve booked is located in St.George(Hamburg-Mitte), just next to the Berliner Tor S-Bahn stop, and was a good choice! Just before 11am already checked in:)! What I can suggest is purchase a Hamburg card(discounts on museums, tours , transport) on your first day. The loss is 25.5euro but I don’t have to care anymore about transport costs.
When the check in was done… went outside found the a LIDL shop nearby to buy some food, breakfast stuff for the next days… . Since it was raining,joining a free walking tour… no! Visit the Hamburger Kunsthalle became a great alternative. Did my research on the internet before and got interested in the exhibition “Dali, Ernst, Miro, Margritte…” (and lesser known artists: Carrington, Tanning…) . Finally saw the Campbell’s of Andy Warhol too! The Hamburger Kunsthalle has a huge permanent collection of Modern Art, the Old Masters,Contemporary Art… check this out!
Spend about 2, 5hours in this museum and still raining damn!!!! Got tired, and went for a necessary powernap rest. Let’s hope for better weather tomorrow because OstendNomad wanna join a free walking tour and explore the street art scene! And in case it’s still raining… some art museums on to do list:)!
Thanks for reading, and maybe tomorrow…. a new “Street Art Around The Globe” episode!
