EN: We will start our Hamburg Hauptbahnhof journey, one of the largest stations in northern Germany and connects Denmark with central Europe.

Opened in 1906, the platform hall’s 70 meters wide roof construction boasts impressive architectural finesse. To the present day, this has remained Germany’s largest unsupported station hall.

RO: Vom incepe calatoaria noastra in Gara Centrala din Hamburg, una din cele mai mari gari din nordul Germaniei si care face legatura dintre Danemarca si Europa centrala.

Deschisa in 1906, constructia are un finisaj arhitectural impresionat, cu o structura de acoperis larga de 70 de metri. Pana in prezent, ea ramane cea mai larga sala de gara fara suport din Germania.

EN: The Hamburg Kunsthalle is the art museum of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, Germany. It is one of the largest museums in the country.

The name ‘Kunsthalle’ indicates the museum’s history as an ‘art hall’ when founded in 1850, and as a tip, reserve time for this one because are so many pieces of art that need your attention.

RO: Muzeul de arta din Hamburg, numit Hamburg Kunsthalle este unul dintre cele mai mari muzee din tara.

Numele ‘Kunsthalle’ indica istoria muzeului ca o sala de arta pe cand a fost fondat in 1850 si ca un sfat, rezerva ceva timp pentru acest muzeu deoarece sunt asa de multe piese de arta care iti necesita toata atentia.

EN: Let’s go now to three of the most iconic church in Hamburg.

Will we start with St. Peter’s Church, which stands on the site of many former cathedrals. The bronze lion-head door handles are the oldest work of art of Hamburg.

The second one is  Michael’s Church, one of Hamburg’s five Lutheran main churches and the most famous church. St. Michaelis is a landmark of the city, and it is considered to be one of the finest Hanseatic Protestant baroque churches.

The Gothic Revival Church of St. Nicholas is our third one, the current condition of the Church of St. Nicholas is the result of Hamburg’s bombing in World War II. Still, it is restored now, so hopefully ready to visit soon.

RO: Sa mergem acum spre cele trei cele mai cunoscute biserici din Hamburg.  Vom incepe cu Biserica Sf. Petru care se afla pe sit-ul mai multor foste catedrale. Manerele de bronz de la usa reprezentand un cap de leu sunt cele mai veche lucrari de arta din Hamburg.

Cea de a doua va fi Biserica Michael, una din cele 5 principale biserici Luterane si cea mai faimoasa biserica din oras. St. Michaelis este un punct de reper al orașului si este considerata una dintre cele mai frumoase biserici baroce protestante hanseatice.

Biserica gotica a Sfantului Nicolae este cea de-a treia, starea actuala a bisericii Sfantul Nicolae este rezultatul bombardarii Hamburgului in cel de-al doilea razboi mondial, dar este in proces de restaurare acum, deci speram ca va fi gata pentru vizitat in curand.

EN: The Hamburg Rathaus is the city hall or town hall and is the seat of the government of Hamburg and, as such, the core of one of Germany’s 16 state parliaments. The city hall of Hamburg has 647 rooms, six rooms more than Buckingham Palace. I chose the wrong day to visit it, why? Because they didn’t do any tours inside the building on that day:(!

RO: Hamburg Rathaus este primaria si sediul guvernului de la Hamburg si, ca atare, sediul unuia dintre cele 16 parlamente de stat din Germania. Primaria orasului Hamburg are 647 de camere, cu sase camere mai mult decat Palatul Buckingham. Am ales o zi gresita pentru a o vizita, de ce? Pentru că in acea zi nu s-au facut tururi in interiorul ei:( Trist!

EN: After being on land so much, you should try a trip with the boat. Hamburg has many streams, rivers, and canals crossed by approx. 2,500 bridges, more than London, Amsterdam, and Venice, put together. Hamburg has more bridges inside its city limits than any other city in the world and more canals than Amsterdam and Venice combined.

The Speicherstadt, meaning warehouse district, is the largest warehouse district where the buildings stand on timber-pile foundations, oak logs, in this particular case. It is located in Hamburg’s port—within the HafenCity quarter—and was built from 1883 to 1927. As the first site in Hamburg, it has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site’s status on 5 July 2015.

With this boat tour, you can see each building of the warehouse, and also, you can visit the port, a seaport on the river Elbe, named the country’s “Gateway to the World.”

The view is fantastic, and you will be able to see all forms from all angles of the Elbphilharmonie or Elbe Philharmonic Hall, a concert hall in the HafenCity quarter of Hamburg. It is one of the largest and most acoustically advanced concert halls in the world.

RO: Dupa ce ati fost atat de mult pe uscat, ar trebui sa incercati o excursie cu barca. Hamburg are numeroase cursuri de apa, rauri si canale traversate de aproximativ 2.500 de poduri, mai multe decat Londra, Amsterdam si Venetia. Hamburg are mai multe poduri in interiourul  orasului decat orice alt oras din lume si mai multe canale decat Amsterdam si Venetia combinate.

Speicherstadt, cartierul depozitului, este cel mai mare cartier din lume, unde cladirile se afla pe fundatii de lemn, busteni de stejar, in acest caz special. Acesta este situat in portul Hamburg – in cartierul HafenCity – si a fost construit intre 1883 si 1927. Fiind primul sit din Hamburg, acesta a primit statutul in Patrimoniu Mondial UNESCO pe 5 iulie 2015.

Cu acest tur puteti vedea fiecare cladire a depozitului si, de asemenea, puteti vizita portul care este un port maritim pe raul Elba, numit “Poarta catre lume” a tării.

Imprejurimile sunt fantastice si veti putea vedea din toate unghiurile Sala Filarmonicii, care este o sala de concerte în cartierul HafenCity din Hamburg. Este una dintre cele mai mari si mai acustice sali de concerte din lume.

EN: This trip with the boat makes me hungry!!! Being in Hamburg, I was curious about the local cuisine. I tried Labskaus, a mixture of corned beef, mashed potatoes, beetroot, herring, fried eggs that were pretty good. The Wiener Schnitzel vom Schwein, and pork schnitzel, even originated in Austria; I knew it is a trendy dish in Germany, so I had that one too.  Obviously, I ate one Apfelstrudel with a generous portion of vanilla sauce! No meal without beer!!!! Proust!!! Try this local restaurant Frau Moller to get in touch with the german cuisine and culture. With a comfy, cozy appearance, rustic wooden furniture, casual, relaxed, and friendly waiters, the restaurant is crowded with guests, and the atmosphere is excellent. By the way – the name Frau Moller was the name of the first owner’s dog.

RO: Aceasta calatorie cu barca mi-a facut foame! Fiind in Hamburg am fost curiosa sa vad cum este bucatarie locala, asa ca am incercat Labskaus un amestec de carne de vita, cartofi piure, salata de sfecla rosie, hering si oua prajite; Wiener Schnitzel vom Schwein, care este un sintel de porc, chiar daca este originar din Austria, stiam ca este un fel de mancare foarte popular in Germania. Evident, ca am mancat si un strudel de mere cu o portie generoasa de sos de vanilie! Nici o masa fara bere!!! Noroc!!!

Incercati acest restaurant local, numit Frau Moller pentru a intra in bucataria si cultura germana. Cu un aspect confortabil, comod, cu mobilier rustic din lemn, chelneri relaxati si prietenosi, restaurantul este plin de oaspeti si atmosfera este minunata. Apropo – numele Frau Moller a fost numele cainelui primului proprietar.
