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.

Started with Berlin with great train ride from Bremen, Germany. Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp (Oranienburg, Germany) I took a slow walk reading all the brutal history. Prisoners were tortured, gassed, incinerated and hanged to death here was a difficult sight. Hanging out with a bunch of hostel friends and not napping throughout the night was a good time to live in. Thanks Sakshi for being there in the city. Back in Bremen, where I stayed for the most and studied for my Summer School at Hochschule Bremen. Schoonr, A place where I found some narrow streets that are still the same that were way back at the time of World War II. Walking around there with those thoughts and saying no word was a comfortable thing to do.
Napping in one of the DB trains to Hamburg was a good ride for a long day to explore and know. St. Micheal's Church and its story was first on my list. Followed by Stadpark, Hamburg. Attending mini concerts at the fish market. And spent my other half of the day at Moenckebergstrasse and around the city central. Town's best chicken burger at Burgerlich was a must try!
