EAT in Hamburg: Curry Pirates
The Curry Pirates love the product they sell - their homemade sausages are served simply with fresh sauces and French fries. Every week sees the unveiling of a new sausage creation, which sometimes requires a touch of daring from the uninitiated. That said, the classics are adventurous in their own right: the standard Bratwurst is filled with diced apple or dried apricots, the lamb Bratwurst comes with a yoghurt-mint sauce and the truffle Bratwurst is served on beans. Only Germany's most expensive Bratwurst need be ordered in advance - only then will the sausage masterpiece made from truffle and veal be exclusively prepared for your plate.

SEE in Hamburg: Old Elbe Tunnelred|guide Hamburg
Whether you are in love or just in love with Hamburg after dark: when morning breaks everyone is drawn to the Old Elbe Tunnel. Those who manage to cover the 426.50 metres below the Elbe to the other side of the river can enjoy what is arguably the most beautiful sunset the city has to offer. The whole city was overcome with pride when the technical wonder was opened in 1911. Nowadays the tunnel plays the role of a lovingly maintained area of nostalgia. Visitors must take a lift down to the tiled tunnel, which greets them with an imposing atmosphere. And it's precisely this that has drawn in film and TV crews, giving the tunnel a cult status. If you want the tunnel all to yourself, you can even rent it as an event venue.
