We are back in Germany, trying out some other cities that don't claim to be as world-class as Berlin.
We are staying in a very stylish yet inexpensive hotel in an extremely hip neighbourhood in the northern part of the St. Pauli area of Hamburg. The Guardian newspaper named St. Pauli one of the five best places in the world to live. I couldn't find any reason to disagree.
Oma's features a great location right on a corner, and an awesome softwood bar set on old desk drawers. I ordered a Duckstein Weizen, but had to settle for a Duckstein Original. A nice beer. A great pub in a very interesting neighbourhood.
