Strand Pauli is one of several beach clubs in Hamburg with a great view of the River Elbe. Near Landungsbrueken just 15 minutes from the Hauptbahnhof, Hamburg's central train station. Here you will find good music, German beer and food direct from the barbecue. Relax on comfortable beach furniture under palm trees with your toes in the sand, which is brought each summer from the North Sea coast.
This is a really cool restaurant in Hamburg that's really worth visiting just to see how the food is delivered to your table - it only opened a few months ago and is a good reason to venture over to the other side of the river. You have to order your food through a touchscreen at your table and then all your food is delivered to you spiralled rails, on a small tray with wheels! The food is good and there is plenty of it. We ordered tons of food because the portions looked so small in the pictures when we were ordering but don't be fooled by them.
Hamburg is our favourite winter city break; we've been there for crisp autumn weekends and for snowy weeks in January. Hamburg is a cosmopolitan city with plenty to entertain, whatever the weather. Wander through the Alter Elbtunnel (old Elbe tunnel) at 426 m long and marvel at the magnificent tiling; climb to the top of Michaeliskirche for an excellent view over the city; try ice skating in the old botanical gardens; take a boat trip around the huge port. There are streets of smart shops, as well as weekly fleamarkets and more museums and culture than you can fit into a weekend. On Sunday morning don't miss the Fish Market, from 7am in winter, a festive and crowded shopping experience; you can buy almost anything and enjoy beer, sausages and dancing for your breakfast. Later stroll around the two lakes; the Binnenalster and Aussenalster, and warm up with hot chocolate and Cointreau.
