MY HAMBURG TIPS
Julia Schliemann, Director of Sales & Marketing
ONLY IN HAMBURG: The most delicious cinnamon roll, Hamburg's Franzbrötchen
MY VICE: Freshly baked curd cheese balls
NOT IN ANY TOURIST GUIDE: Guided tour through the container port with "Jasper - Eye to Eye with the Giants"
MY FAVORITE PLACE: The terrace at the restaurant AlsterCliff with a glas of wine in my hand, overlooking the Outer Alster lake
My perfect day begins with a delicious breakfast at Marley's Restaurant. I just love the fresh pressed orange juice with a croissant and nutella - ideal for setting out to discover the city. From the MADISON it’s a short walk downtown. On your way you pass by lots of little boutiques and stores and can meander through the Europa-Passage and the Spitalerstrasse, where you can discover lots of beautiful things.
OFF TO THE ALSTER LAKE.
Our beautiful Inner Alster is located in the heart of the downtown area - a little oasis amid the shops, office buildings and the hustle and bustle of the city’s traffic. Our walk takes us over the Kennedy and Lombards Bridges to the Outer Alster. Alone the view is purely relaxing! The walk around the Outer Alster is ca. 7 kilometers after which it is worth taking a break at the restaurant AlsterCliff, which is not only a fabulous location; it has an lovely pier directly at the Alster where you can enjoy some tea and cake while taking in the soothing view out over the water. Then you can head back to THE MADISON either on foot or conveniently by bus and subway.
Dine Spanish-Moroccan! My tip for a very special evening with fantastic delicacies? Have our reception team reserve a table for you at the Restaurant Imara in Eppendorf a very elegant part of town. Here a splendid fusion of Spanish and Moroccan specialties made from fresh ingredients and exotic spices are served. The ambience is also a real experience. And where to end the perfect day? At the bar back at THE MADISON, naturally!
