I’m in Hamburg five times a week. But for work and not for pleasure. On weekends the Autobahn is less crowded than during the week, which makes it easy to be in the city within one hour. I enjoy being there. There is always something to do, at any weather condition. When it’s raining you can visit the Miniature Wonderland for example.
As we found out sunny winter days are good for a walk at the Elbe, though 🙂 .
We made the trip last weekend, this weekend is for cleaning windows (sorry sun, this is one of your less disadvantages) and watching TV 🙂 .
Enjoy the rest of it, whatever you are planning!
