Duration of stay: 13th till 14th December 2015
Few months before our scheduled arrival at the Hotel Fuerst Bismarck Hamburg, we have pre-booked 2 days and 1 night room at only EUR 95. The hotel is located at Kirchenallee 49, Hamburg and yes it does facing Hamburg Hauptbanhof. Trust me, as it’s so happened that we were given a room view of the train station. As soon as we entered, I pulled the curtain and snapped below photo. The station is indeed right in front of me. It felt wonderful even though we had such a pity luck as I made a wrong stop earlier at the Harburg station, a station away from the main central Hamburg station.
If not, we could just across the road leisurely and would have booked ourselves an hour boat cruise tour, like what we did when in Amsterdam. For those who are interested may explore Hamburg at your own pace and enjoy either a hop-on hop-off bus tour with harbor and Lake Alster cruises on the exciting Hamburg shore excursion. Jump aboard a HOHO double-decker bus at the St Pauli Port and discover top attractions including St Michael’s Church, Harbour City, the Reeperbahn and the pretty Krameramt district. It will take around 1 hour boat cruise through Hamburg's warehouse district to Harbour City whilst enjoying a fine city views from a different perspective. The cruise shall pass the waters of serene Lake Alster and admire the villas and gardens lining its shore.
