A place of warmth

We visited this characteristic neighborhood, particularly the square where an evening party is held after 4 pm, and we found ourselves in an area reminiscent of a village. We were welcomed as part of the ‘village’ and had a group evening amongst families with children. We were amazed by the warmth of Hamburg and its people.
