We have been to Hamburg before
long long times ago
and remember it as a nice city
We took a ship's tour
for Hamburg and Elbe river cruise.

super luxurious mansions along side the river
One hour river cruise was quite pleasant with
local snacks served on board
except one Asian tourist kept smoking
at the back of the rather small boat.
Yep, he was told not to but
he played dumb and pretended
to speak only one language which is Japanese. ;(
People playing a kind of basketball on a kayak.
Looks like fun!
