When we arrived in Hamburg on Sunday, May 8, we stopped by the hotel to drop off our bags and then headed out to see the last day of the Harbor Birthday Party. Thousands of of people. They sailed old ships (or rather tug boats pushed them) out of the harbor -- a parade at sea. After this, we wandered back to the hotel and unknowingly passed many of the important sights in Hamburg.
