Hamburg Lübeck Schwerin Greifswald Berlin Dresden Weimar Frankfurt Tourchester

In May 2015 we travelled to Germany to attend a rehearsal for the Tourchester Band. This was in preparation for the Band’s Oktoberfest excursion to Brasil.  Prior to the rehearsal we toured Northern and then Eastern Germany. Here are some pictures of our trip. We landed in Hamburg and spent three days there…

After landing at Flughafen Hamburg, we took the S-Bahn to Hamburg’s Hauptbahnhof. Our Hotel was just across the street.

While we were waiting to get into our room, we went for lunch around the corner.  As luck would have it, there was a cold draught waiting for us.

This was the view from our hotel room window. Did I mention that we were quite convenient to the Hauptbahnhof

This is Hamburg’s Rathaus (city hall)

Buskers defying gravity in the Rathausplatz.

A fine dinner in Hamburg.

Trachten window shopping.

The amazing Miniature World!

Airplanes taking-off and landing, cars jostling for parking spots…

A fine dinner in the Groninger Braukeller. We cooked our own meat on the table-top grill.

Street scene in Hamburg… yes it is a port city.
