We live just a little North of Hamburg, halfway between city and country... I really love it in the city. We meet friends every year at the Rathaus for the Christmas market... aren't they the best? Bremen has a pretty good one too, oder?

I really like the old, quaint part of the city close to the Michael... it kind of reminds me of one part of Bremen that has been restored after it had been almost completely destroyed.

My husband told me that Hamburg actually has more bridges than Venice... who would have thought?

Schöne Grüße aus Norderstedt!
