Welcome to Hamburg

 

Let’s face it: a trip to the immigration office can be described in many ways – some of them positive, others less so – but it’s safe to say that nobody would ever refer to it as “fun”.

That’s why we’ve decided to dedicate our first series of blog entries to two things that are guaranteed to bring comfort and joy to an otherwise tedious day: food and drink.
We’ve scoured the areas around the central immigration offices in several German cities and hand-picked the best restaurants, cafés, bakeries and bars we could find for those in need of a quick pick-me-up, ready to sink in to a nice meal, or in search of a neighborhood gem.

Whether you’re undercaffeinated or underfed, pressed for time or looking for someplace to spend it, this list of nearby locales will point you in the right direction.
