Undoubtedly one of Hamburg’s best known offerings, my trip to this part of Germany would not have been complete without seeing the infamous Reeperbahn – Hamburg’s red-light district street in St Pauli. We went at 2:30am on a Saturday night, which apparently is the time to go. I have to say that I found the whole setup a lot more civilised than Amsterdam’s equivalent.
Ascertaining the place further I reached right at the foot of Rathaus Glockenspiel. With the clock striking sharp at noon hearing the Glockenspiel ring and watch with the 32 life-sized figures reenacting historical Bavarian events was a sight! By far this was one of the world's most extravagant clock I had witness after Big Ben! Next day on my plan was an early beginning to visit the Neuschwanstein Castle, one of the most popular of all the palaces and castles in Europe. With 1,4 million people visiting this "fairytale castle" every year the closer I arrived to the castle I was taken back to my childhood remembrances. Reaching the castle involved an hour long train journey and an irksome climb too, but with the childlike zeal in me I was up there in no time to witness this Disney inspired fairytale. Exploring this fairy world time seemed to have passed rather quickly.

Germany's second largest city has a sophisticated demeanour, behind which lurks mischief and abandon. Hamburg is considerably smaller than Berlin, more tight-night and connected, and yet thoroughly eclectic when it comes to art and music.Getting around in HamburgThe U-Bahn is the best way to explore most of Hamburg's sights. A lot of walking will inevitably be involved. A single day pass for unlimited use of all public transport costs €6.20 a day for adults, €2.30 for children aged 6 to 14. Bike rentals are available, but not as accessible or widely advertised as in Berlin
