I can highly recommend visiting Hamburg in Germany! You should not miss it!
People who live here call it the most beautiful city in the world. FI and I have been living here for more than 5 years now, i have been to a lot of european cities, and it´s true, Hamburg is definately one of the most beautiful cities i have ever seen, and moving here was the best decision we ever made! I LOVE Hamburg!!
Thinking about the past years chances are good that the weather is nice in April and it might already be sunny and warm.
Hamburg is a perfect combination of old and new, and there are tons of historical buildings, though right now i can´t think of anything specifically related to WWII, but i know there is a KZ memorial place in or near Hamburg. The house we live in was almost completely destroyed during the war, and then rebuild after it, like a lot of houses here, so there are a lot of districts with very old and charming architecture. And in contrast to that there are places like the “Hafencity”, which is a district near the port consisting of newly built super-modern houses, right next to the historic “Speicherstadt”
Hamburg has a ton of museums, and i think there are quite a lot of history-related exhibitions. Unfortunately the site is not available in english, but just ask me if there is something that you want to have translated
There is so much you can do here, you never get bored. And there are still so many places FI and i haven´t seen yet. This city is quite large, and just amazing! Here are some nice fotos of Hamburg, just to give you an impression:
FI recommends this museum in Munich:
If you should visit Hamburg, i recommend that you do NOT, NEVER, under no circumstances take a rental car and drive here yourselves! You will get lost, i swear!! :))
FI and i sometimes still have problems finding the right way, despite our GPS system. Driving here is horror if you are not used to it. Hamburg has a weird and terrible systems of one-way streets almost everywhere, and you are never allowed to turn left or right where you have to. The guy who designed this must have been stoned and drunk and a psycho as well 😉
