Moin Hamburg!

i‑contravel was pleased to have an invitation from Grand Elysée Hotel to take part in a Famtrip to Hamburg and our Finnish speaking Eveliina Karppinen took the occasion.  This incredible 5* star hotel with over 510 rooms, 6 restaurants and 30 meeting rooms and Hamburg’s biggest hotel ballroom, is the perfect venue for every occasion.


An I-Pad rally at the hotel - organized by GEOBOUND - kick-started the weekend. The welcome-game was followed by an amazing dinner with delicious seafood at the hotel restaurant Brasserie Flum. What a culinary experience!


On Saturday the location tour included visits to the Curiohaus, the Museum am Rothenbaum - Cultures and Arts of the World, the Congress Center Hamburg and  the San Cap Diego - a former cargo ship, converted into not only a museum and a hotel, but also an event ship which offers a venue for an escape room. The inside visits, panoramic tour and transfers were further enhanced by travelling on a double-decker sightseeing bus through this lovely Hanseatic city. At the Blockbräu restaurant lunch was offered with home-brewed Blockbräu beer as well as an interesting brewery tour.


The evening program started with a visit at the east Hotel Hamburg. This amazing 4-star Superior Design hotel- located in Hamburg's St.Pauli district - offers luxurious accommodation in various categories. Dinner at the east Hotel Hamburg restaurant completely exceeded all expectations – fabulous Sushi dishes of the highest quality surprised us all. After dinner we moved to Clouds in the "Tanzende Türme" located on the Reeperbahn – Hamburg’s highest restaurant& bar on the 23rd floor (105 m). Breathtaking views over Hamburg with tasty cocktails – an absolutely Must for visitors! The evening ended by an exclusive candle-light cruise through the harbor and Speicherstadt.


Many thanks to the lovely team from Grand Elysée Hotel for this fascinating experience!
