    Hamburg?! Why in the hell would you go to Hamburg?  There are so very many beautiful cities and spots in Germany….sadly Hamburg is not normally conisered one of them.  :)

    dustoffmom, I went to Hamburg because the German teacher leading our college group had grown up there. Therefore, we stayed for several weeks in a Hamburg suburb. My (future) husband and I saw Munich and Salzburg on our own time, and I saw Cologne while visiting family. In some ways, it was a rewarding trip, but there was a lot of bitterness and disappointment also.

    I was in transit with a layover in Munich for a few hours in 1972.  I went to panic mode the moment I heard “achtung” over the PA system.

    My sister and her husband are touring Germany now. Her husband, born in Germany, emigrated to the US when he was a child. So this tour is a homecoming of sorts- though not his first homecoming, as he was stationed in Germany when he was with the US Army.
