Leaving behind a tumultuous past marked by destruction and periods of glory, Hamburg rose from the dust of war wealthier and stronger than before
Being in Lubeck for a few days already, as much as I loved that city I was starting to get bored. So, it seemed a good idea that since Hamburg was only 70 km away, I should take the train and pay it a visit. Definitely, it was not in my plans and being a big city was not on my “must see“ list. I still prefer smaller picturesque towns.
What convinced me though, was that fact that since I wrote a paper on propaganda in Germany during WWII when I finished university, maybe it should be a good idea to know better the Germany of today while looking at it through the mirror of the past.
Although is not my kind of city, it managed to impress me.
