The end of this very short trip report is finally here!

As a reminder, I landed in Hamburg on a Monday morning and left [extremely early] on Friday morning. The only reason I bring that up is to say that I didn’t get to experience Hamburg over a weekend or really do anything ‘crazy’ as I had meetings all week long beginning around 7:30 am.

I stayed in downtown Hamburg, but my meetings were actually a bit out in the suburbs to the west of town (as you’ll see in the map below). I was ‘reverse commuting’ and I actually liked to be able to drive through some lesser-seen parts of town!

20-25 minute commute – not bad!

Anyway, this post will really just be a couple pictures and captions from my trip.

Small canal near the hotel – they’re all over the place!

Trying to copy off the Pont des Arts? Got a long way to go.

View of the boats on the harbor right in downtown. Took it on my commute to the burbs. Don’t worry – it was a red light.

Taking in the Hamburg scenery while waiting for some fellow conference attendees to meet me for dinner at Bucks Restaurant.

On Wednesday night when I was there, a group of us hit up a street festival on the Reeperbahn. Basically just a bunch of food trucks with amazing burgers and big beers.

Food Trucks for days

I’m pretty sure the truck’s name was called “F***in’ Burger” – it was absolutely incredible.

After that it was a walk through the Neustadt district – just incredible buildings.

Casino Esplande. The only casino I’ve ever been to where I haven’t donated any money. Won about 400 euros!

Conclusion:
I LOVED Hamburg. I only stayed there for 4 nights, and had to be in meetings most of the week, but cannot wait to go back one day with my wife! I would absolutely recommend going there for at least three days to really take in the entire city. And, as I said in my last post, I’d highly recommend The Westin Hamburg – it was incredible.
