Hamburg & Junk

This past weekend I visited northern Germany to spend time with another exchange student before she goes back to Australia in January. We were mostly in Hamburg, but we also visited Mölln, Ratzeburg, and Lübeck. They were all super pretty. In Hamburg, we visited a couple Christmas markets, (which I am going to miss since they are finishing this weekend.) visited the top of the Philharmonic, and ate at Hard Rock Cafe. In Mölln, a town of around 19,000 people, we went to the small Christmas market and a museum about Till Eulenspiegel, a trickster who spent much of his time in Mölln. In Ratzeburg we visited the church, which was originally constructed from 1200 to 1250. We then went to Lübeck, where we visited the large Christmas market there as well as one of the cities old gates.

The old city Gate in Lübeck

 

These old cities were some of the most beautiful places I’ve seen. I don’t know how to describe the way that they were beautiful. In places like Ratzeburg and Mölln it’s a kind of peace that you only get in small towns. In places like Hamburg and Lübeck you realize that you’re in history. Its crazy.
