If the weather is good, a Hamburg "must" is a harbor boat trip. They start at the Landungsbrücken (take the train to the stop with the same name, e.g. train S 1 or U 3).

There are double decker busses that do city tours (like in most big towns). You buy a ticket for the day and then you can step in and out of the bus at the various stops, like the Rathaus (town house, nice tours inside) or the Michel (biggest church in Hamburg). A good place to start for that are the Landungsbrücken as well.

Another fun thing to do is to get a "look from the top" by going into the air in a hot air balloon. The balloon is chained to the ground, so you go up to about 150 m and can enjoy the view over Hamburg (only in good weather!). Costs 15 €. Train stop Steinstraße (train U 1).

Walking around the Alster lake in good weather is very popular in Hamburg. The lake is about 5 min. away from the tennis stadium, so if you need a break it's a good place to relax.

In the evening, pretty much everybody goes to the Reeperbahn (train S 1 to the station with the same name) for dancing and drinking. Also nice for that is the Schanzenviertel (train stop "Sternschanze"). For those who are in Hamburg during the Qualis: the Harbor Festival is going on, lots of drinking and partying, starting (again) at Landungsbrücken.

Should be enough for a quick overview.
I'll be around for the whole duration of the tourney, together with some international guests. Anybody who feels lonely, feel free to join us.

Re: Who is going?

Hello Folks!

I'm thinking of going... but it will depend on whether I can find a place to stay!
Can anyone here give some advice on that? I wouldn't even mind just a camping site, as I'll happily bring along my tent...

Please PM me if you know anything.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Who is going?

I'm in Bremen and my semester ticket is valid for travelling to the Hamburg main station (YAY!!) so I'll be coming on Wednesday,Thursday and Friday. Maybe Tuesday and the finals day as well... depends on the work load in the university.
So far,I have bought tickets for Friday only. Dunno if I will be able to get tickets now. What are the chances of buying the tickets on the day?

ROGER FEDERER!
