The wonderful port on the North Sea calls me back repeatedly. In particular, to my favourite restaurant: Henssler & Henssler, which serves the most sensational sushi. The rib-eye steak sourced from free-range cattle is also very tasty. Managed superbly by Werner, Peter & Steffen Henssler (the latter a popular German television personality), the restaurant features a cool Nordic interior. If I ever meet Steffen there in person, I would be delighted indeed!

I can recommend going on the city tour aboard the red double-decker bus. It may not be cheap, but passengers get a live commentary of the tour by real citizens of Hamburg – which can sometimes lead to impromptu sing-songs. Very entertaining!

The Südhang has long been one of my favourite places in Hamburg. Every day from 6 p.m., you can try a new wine, select a delicacy from the creative daily menu, or – in line with the old adage that you should «Never change a winning team», order the classic goat’s cheese salad for the umpteenth time. In the middle of the Schanze, the Südhang is also a good place from where to embark on Hamburg’s nightlife.

Whenever I go to Hamburg, I have to go to the elbgold for my coffee. Annika and Thomas have built up a veritable coffee oasis in the middle of the Schanze. It’s not terribly easy for people who are new to Hamburg to find; the best thing is to follow your nose. The perfect breakfast: milky coffee and a fresh bagel with homemade cream cheese. After that, you know the day is going to be a good one. The second café is near the Alster on the Mühlenkamp, not far from the pretty Winterhude area.
