On Sunday, it was forecasted to be fine and a top of 12C so I thought it would be a perfect day to take a walking tour of Hamburg and explore what my new hometown has on offer.
On the way to the station I took some pictures of the gardens around my apartment building because they just looked so beautiful in their autumn colours.
The walking tour I went on was one run by Sandeman’s. This tour is free, all you pay is a tip at the end if you think the tour guide was entertaining and you had a good time. The tour runs for approximately 3 hours and is a much cheaper alternative to the paid walking tours which last for about an hour and charge you roughly €30.
Just as our tour got underway, it started raining and kept on raining for the whole 3 hours. I have now learnt never to trust the weather forecast here. Unfortunately, I really didn’t get many good photos as it was just a terrible day to photograph the sites. Still the tour gave me a really good idea of what is around to see in Hamburg and the places I want to go back and explore more.
I ended up giving Judith a €10 tip. Her tour was excellent. I definitely want to do this tour again, probably in late Spring/early Summer when the weather is really nice and you can get some really good photos.
