Hamburg, Germany

Falmouth | Cork | Dublin EdinburghHamburg

The ship pulled into a town near Hamburg Germany called Luebeck  where we had an afternoon walking tour planned.  In the morning after breakfast we ventured off on our own out into the town for a couple of hours of shopping and sightseeing.

The streets of Lubeck with a familiar sign


A sailing vessel moored close to the cruise ship

The walking tour started just after lunch time on the ship.  We rode a bus a short distance to then began following our tour guide who used a little flag to show the rest of the group where she was at all times.  Her English pretty good but sometimes hard to understand with her thick German accent.  The tour ended with a visit to a German micro-brewery.

The first neat building in Lubeck
