Day Trips from Hamburg

We're going to Hamburg in February (cold, we know) to visit a friend studying. All said and done, we'll have 3/4 days to spend. We're looking for suggestions for a day/overnight trip from Hamburg. Any suggestions? Right now we're kicking around overnight in Amsterdam or Copenhagen and then a day trip to Berlin . . .but that's just a vague idea of something resembling a plan.

Thanks

Be sure to visit the old Hanseatic town of Luebeck which is near the Baltic close to Hamburg.

Lübeck

http://www.luebeck-tourism.de/

Mini group day ticket EUR 27,20.

Lüneburg

www.lueneburg.de/index.htm?baum_id=3231

Mini group day ticket EUR 21,60.

Amsterdam and Copenhagen are way too far for a day trip.

Berlin is 1:36 (one way) if you use the fast but also expensive ICE trains. Return ticket EUR 130 per person.

Besides this: Berlin is not a suitable day trip destination. Too huge. Too widespread. Won't recommend trips to Berlin with less than 3/4 days at minimum.

An overnight to Berlin instead of Amsterdam or Copenhagen would be the way to go. Berlin has a good transport network and plenty of interesting sights. The museums are first rate, so if it is really cold, you can still have a great time.

Daytrips to the small towns of Celle or Luneberg ("U" is umlauted) would make a great contrast to Hamburg and Berlin.

I vote for Lubeck. Much cuter than Copahagen and Berlin.

Amsterdam is fantastic but maybe an overnight is too short, but it´s a small city with many museums, nice restaurants and pubs and you can almost walk everywhere.
