Very short trip from Berlin to Hamburg (90 minutes on Germany’s fastest Intercity Express train).
A stroll along the Alster, a wander through the Speicherstadt, and a visit to Hafen City, Europe’s largest urban renewal project. Also check out the miniature ships at the Maritime Museum.
My only regret is missing the Beatles-Platz.

The world’s largest ‘bone ship’: ship models made in the early 1800s by prisoners in naval hulks who used leftover bones and wire.
