Hamburgers In Hamburg And The Musicians Of Bremen (Day 4)

Hamburgers In Hamburg And The Musicians Of Bremen (Day 4)

  English      Română


The night before wasn’t really the most bohemian night ever, but we’ve managed to find a place to sleep, in a parking place near a gas station located 30 minutes away from the German border. Because both of us wanted so much to go towards sunny places, we drove the entire day through the North of Germany. The first impression about this country was that it feels more rural than Denmark and Sweden from we were just coming. The North of Germany wasn’t really the first destination that would pop up in our minds when it comes to taking a vacation.

On our way to Hamburg we’ve literally got roasted. The shaky roads and the 30 C degrees from outside were much more that we were used to until that moment (we have to mention that our entire Eurotrip was running by the “old school vacation” principle, which means that we had no AC, so we put the windows down letting our hair blow in the wind). The traffic began to have another perspective, with highways having 4-5 lanes, with hurried drivers and gas that had another name.

We have arrived in Hamburg in the afternoon, and even if the city wasn’t on our visit list, we needed to make a stop just because we couldn’t pass it without trying out guess what? Their hamburgers, of course! While I was driving, Philippe did a bit of a research and he found the “Dulf’s Burger” restaurant, the best rated when it comes to hamburgers, according to Google. It really was a nice place with a hipster vibe and very nice food (Google was right). We truly recommend both the Farmer’s Burger for the meat eaters (Philippe the flexitarian wanted to try our the local tradition) and the vegetarian version, with crumbled eggs and veggies.

After we fulfilled our goal and stomachs we didn’t really wanted to visit more so we left Hamburg. It was a bit complex to leave the city due to the rush hour and the chaotic streets, but we’ve managed to head to Bremen. The landscape already begun to change while we were getting closer to the Vest. The houses looked more groomed and the overall architecture became warmer. We’ve said that our strange experience with Germany was due to the recently loss that the country faced during the FIFA World Cup (right the day before) and the pressure was still in the air.

Next stop: Bremen, a stylish city with a more Dutch atmosphere, being closer to the border. Doubtless the hottest attraction of the city is the town musicians statue, overcrowded by all the tourists starving to take a picture with it. After a long and patient waiting time, we manage to have our own moment with the little animals.

We’ve been impressed by the old blacked out buildings and their details that made them look like precious jewellery. Overall we had the chance to listen to a boy and his guitar, singing by the river, creating a festival atmosphere. There was the first moment when we began to feel relaxed, switching to the vacation mood. In the fifth day we will tell you about the Netherlands, its overcrowded capital and beautiful country side.
