I am visiting Hamburg for a couple of days next week, for the first time. I coming in the afternoon and will stay close to Landungsbrücken, so maybe I plan to have an idea of the city by having a ride on boat 62, and then in the evening visit some district. I would like a nice area to have a walk, enjoy architecture and have dinner. Would you suggest Altona and then a quick look on St. Pauli/Reeperbahn (I'm not interested in nightlife, just have an idea of the area)?
The day after (Saturday) I plan to walk over the city, visiting the centre. Since I don't have too much time to spend in the city, I prefer to enjoy by living the streets, instead to be in a hurry to visit lot of places and run from a museum of another. This is my approach for the first time I visit some places (if I like the atmosphere, I come back and focus more on museums and other highlights, and I am sure that I'll come again to Hamburg): I can make an exception by visiting the Kunst und Gewerbe Museum (mainly for the photography section). So the task will be something like living the city like a Hamburg citizen and not as a tourist...do you have some suggestion to make that day?
If I still have time, I am charmed by Blankenese, it looks a nice place. But since it is out of city, do you think it worth a visit? Eventually do you know if there is some boat service going there?
The day after (Sun) I planned to go to Lubeck, but before taking the train, I will like to wake up early and visit the fish-market.
Thanks in advance for any comments and suggestions to improve my plan!Edited: 26 October 2013, 09:59
