Hamburg had the largest Jewish community in Germany before the second world war. There are many commemorative cobblestones (Stolpersteine). Some buildings preserved from the concentration camp that was based at Neuengamme now serve as a memorial.

In total contrast, there is the Wunderland. The model railway should not be underestimated – and it HAS absolutely HAS to be booked in advance. Do it early, our film shows how to get there. If you are on a tour with it included it will guarantee entry but your time there will be limited by the tour. It is a must, whether you like models or not!

Just up the road is a coffee house and a roasting factory inside. Worth a call, see the film.

It has possibly the best Christmas market on the ocean cruise circuit.

The Reeperbahn is not near the centre, it may be bear where your ship docks.

Fed by the German river Eider this is a 98-kilometre-long freshwater canal that saves 250 nautical miles by linking the North Sea at Brunsbüttel to the Baltic Sea at Kiel-Holtenau.

Kiel itself still has a Woolworths and a C&A; see our film. Beer Kellers are fun. The Tall ships festival starts to party just as you have to leave.

Travemünde is a ferry port to Scandinavia, a fishing port that encourages the many seafood restaurants, and a cruise port for the Travemünde Beach in the Bay of Lübeck.

The Fishermen’s harbour is a must. Fish and fish buns. The 4-masted sailing ship Passat is normally open for guided tours. The Alter Leuchtturm lighthouse is now a maritime museum. The building dates back to 1539.

We have put these two ports together because they are so close. Either side of the river. The ship building yard here cruise ship LNG engines are built.
