  • Had an included cruise because of the Hamburg Pass on a lovely sunny cool day ... very relaxing watching the lake activities and the mansions of the rich and famous !  more »
  • My first sight seeing in Hamburg with my friends. We took a walk near Lake Ulster early in the morning. The atmosphere and scenery are good, and the weather is good and it is good for a walk.
