Nutella Pancakes on the Altser Lake in Hamburg

Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten

If you’re interested in travel in Germany, then you’ll want to read this article on Munich, and a few from Frankfurt during travels I did there a while ago! (Hint: Beeswax Candles + a Cold Frankfurt Morning and also Tinsel + Wurst at The Frankfurt Christmas Markets)

Hamburg was just as beguiling, with its view over the Inner Alster Lake at the Fairmont Hotel and it’s delicious chocolate Nutella Crêpe pancake stand nearby. This 5-star hotel is STUNNING and was within walking distance to a Rotary Convention my group was attending. The interior of the hotel was complinented by sweets, truffles, afternoon teas + chocolate cakes made fresh each day – but I think i’ll save that for another post 🙂

Let’s not forget the Altstadt of Hamburg, in other words the ‘old town’ of the city, where restaurant Krameramtsstuben has been going since 1718 and features eel soup, fried corned beef & other Hamburg specialities in a rustic house on a centuries-old lane!

St. Nikolai Memorial

Gothic Revival cathedral that was formerly one of the five Lutheran Hauptkirchen in the city of Hamburg, Germany. The original chapel, a wooden building, was completed in 1195. It was replaced by a brick church in the 14th century, which was eventually destroyed by fire in 1842. The church was completely rebuilt by 1874, and was the tallest building in the world from 1874 to 1876. It was designed by the English architect George Gilbert Scott. The bombing of Hamburg in World War II destroyed the bulk of the church.
