City Tips from Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum

GCT rider Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, who was born in California but lives an hour from Hamburg, has given some great tips for GCT spectators visiting the city:

  • What advice would you give a tourist in Hamburg? 

Stay in the Louis C. Jacob hotel, in a room with a view of the Elbe.  Beautiful!  Enjoy running on the Elbe while watching the boats go by!  And don't forget their breakfast buffet-- the best in town!

  • Where do you go shopping in Hamburg? 

Right in the centre of Hamburg:  Neuer Wall

  • What’s the best meal you’ve had in Hamburg? 

The gourmet restaurant at the Louis C. Jacob Hotel

  • Where’s a fun place to have a drink in Hamburg?  

The lobby bar at the East Hotel

  • Tell us something we wouldn’t know about Hamburg.

The best sushi is at Henssler and Henssler on the harbour; Marlies Moller is where to get your hair done; and have a glass of champagne and fresh oysters at the fish bar in the Passage by the Renaissance Hotel.  Fun!
