My day starts preparing breakfast to the smell of fresh coffee brewing. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day so I am a bit picky and have yet to find a local cafe to statisfy my cravings in Hamburg, Germany.
My favourite morning activity in Hamburg is to take a walk through my local park ‘Planten un Blomen’. It consists of themed gardens, tulips, a lake and an amazing green house. I always take this time to be mindful and breath in the fresh air for a positive start to my day.
Hamburg has delicious coffee, and there are plenty of cosy coffee shops to get my daily fix. My current favourites are;
⁃ Less Political
⁃ Nord Coast Coffee Roastery
⁃ Balz und Balz
Depending on my schedule I then like to squeeze in a workout. Kai Fu is a beautiful gym with the biggest class time table I have ever seen and an amazing recreational centre. They offer day passes and a variety of discounts for models wishing to train there. Another great gym is Elbgym, they have multiple locations over Hamburg and one of the best personal trainers @memolutionfitness. Check out my ‘Train Like a Model’ Vlog with Memo here.
If I don’t prepare lunch at home, I usually head to ‘Urban Foodie’ they have something for everyone and I never leave disappointed.
My favourite form of transportation in Hamburg is walking. It’s fascinating how the architecture changes so suddenly between suburbs. Hafen City, Karolineviertel, Hoheluft-Ost and the city centre/ Alster are my top picks of areas to explore.
If it is the weekend I might stop by the local Flea Markets. There is always something new to see, and the possibility of finding a cool vintage piece.
Hamburg has something for everyone and a trip to Germany wouldn’t be complete without stopping by. I had an amazing two months in Hamburg and can’t wait to return sometime soon!
