About Ann-Kristin B
Lives in Hamburg, Germany
Since Oct 2008
I was Born and raised in Hamburg. But after graduationg from high School I felt I wanted to see the world. That is why I decided to take a break and absolve voluntary worjk in Tanzania and a traineeship in South Africa as well as backpack through China and South America. When I came back I moved to the Netherlands to study International Tourism Management. I graduation in 2013 and am now living again in the most beautiful City of Hamburg where I also work in the tourism industry. I'm still crazy about travelling and cannot wait for my next trip :)

A cozy and hip 1970s-style café, Cafe May is a fun place to kick off your day. The drinks and snacks are cheap, yet oh-so-tasty, and the comfy couches are a great place to enjoy them. Choose one of their selection of board games for an early morning duel.
An undisputed Hamburg highlight is the city's floating docks, called Landungsbrücken. Enjoy a walk along the promenade, taking in the magnificent view of the Hamburg Harbor — with all its ships and seagulls. Seafood restaurants are ubiquitous on these docks, tempting you at every turn with delicious fish rolls...
The Rickmer Rickmers is an old sailing ship that once imported rice from Hong Kong. Today, it is an interesting floating museum moored at Landungsbrücken (the floating docks).
A stroll along the Landungsbrücken promenade will take you to historic Speicherstadt, the warehouse district. Here red warehouses, built on timber piles, sit between narrow canals. The area was once a custom-free zone, where coffee and spices were stored. Today, it is under constant redevelopment and home to many offices and museums.
The 'heart of Hamburg,' Jungfernstieg is a street and promenade along the southern coast of the Inner Alster lake. There are a lot of shops and restaurants here, as well as companies offering boat tours on the lake. I recommend taking a walk here, past the luxury hotels, and across the Kennedy Bridge, which affords fantastic panoramic views of Hamburg city center.
Situated on the bank of the Inner Alster Lake, on the famous Jungfernstieg, Alex is a modern restaurant offering you unique views from your dinner table. Because of its location, it is always crowded and can get noisy too, but the views make it worth a visit.
Night clubs, bars, brothels…The Reeperbahn is one of Europe’s most famous streets — and Hamburg’s Party and Red Light district. It may feel a bit seedy in the area, but that is all part of the attraction! To check out the trendier bars and clubs in this area, explore the side roads Große Freiheit and Hamburger Bergs.
Olivia Jones is our famous local Drag Queen. Recently, she won the celebrity show 'I'm a star...get me out of here' and is now known throughout the whole of Germany. She offers funny and unique Red Light district tours, which always end in one of her three bars.
