Bremen, Soltau and Hamburg

August 31st, 2009 by UFO in Traveling

Just before I was leaving Lithuania me and Alina decided to take advantage of cheap Ryanair flights and flew to visit Germany (concretely Bremen, Soltau and Hamburg) for a few days.

St. Peter's Cathedral in Bremen

We were flying from Kaunas to Bremen, so we started the sightseeing there. The city centre was very nice, lot of historical buildings to see, fast food each five meters ;-) and crowds of tourists everywhere.

From Bremen we took a train to Soltau, where we had planned to visit an amusement park. The accommodation was situated just next to the park, it was very comfortable. Together with the accommodation we bought two-day tickets to the park.

Rollercoaster in Heide-Park

The park was simply amazing, especially themes of the park's parts and the nature there. On the first we tried more than a half of attractions and left everything for the next day. Unfortunately the whole day on the shining Sun caused me sunstroke and bad Kebab and centrifuge were a no-go for my stomach. During the next day I was feeling so sick, that we left the park sooner (missing a lot of attractions :-() and went to Hamburg. I was so glad when I laid down to the bed in hostel.

In the morning I felt a little better so we hit the streets. Our first stop was the famous district Reeperbahn and the Beatles museum there. From there we moved to Hamburg Zoo and Aquarium. It was the best zoo I have ever seen.

Town Hall in Hamburg

Sadly, we did not have so much time to see Hamburg thoroughly, maybe next time…
