hamburg II

It was a gorgeous, sunny and warm Saturday and Sunday in Hamburg. With friends, a scenic cycling route and a delicious BBQ. It was another super day in the city.

First we started with a lovely lunch at Klippkroog on Saturday. A bistro with a large outdoor terrace, organic ingredients and impeccable tiny brownies that come with the coffee.   

I enjoyed the goat cheese and strawberry salad finished with an orange infused dressing, accompanied by homemade lemonade with mint. The bread is homemade, the terrace filled with sun and there was a lady sitting on the floor adding colourful chalk to the pavement. 

After a lovely stroll we ended up at Altes Maedchen, a beer hall and brewery, with a sunny terrace, herb crates and a well designed interior. We enjoyed some drinks and when you go there the pretzels are a must.  

These chairs are so cool. Love them. Every detail in this interior is so well thought out. 

It is summer and so naturally there was an outdoor party in the middle of the park. 

The next morning to gather some fuel for our cycling trip we had a well balanced brunch at Van Der Motte.  The weather was lovely again and so we enjoyed our brunch outside. The inside of this tiny place is absolutely adorable. I love the drift wood on the wall, the stylish Scandinavian chairs and the subtle details.  

Spring and summer bring with them a range of flowers and everywhere you go you'll find bright ones. It just makes me so happy. 

And then it was time for the cycle tour, the beach and some refreshments. We rented some of the bikes. It is an ingenious system for the residents of the city. I am sure there are plenty of options for tourists as well.This is quite a digital city, and thus it shouldn't be that difficult to find all the options.
