Superb Apartment, excellent quiet location, 30 mins from Airport

5 of 5
What a great find this apartment was, exactly as described by Ulrike. Right in heart of a quiet residential area with good restaurants nearby and 3 supermarkets all within 5-10 minutes walk. We met up with our daughter who is a student in Gottingen for the bank holiday weekend. She slept on the bed settee which was perfect. Bathroom was on the small side, but the shower more than made up for this. Husband and daughter made the most of the coffee machine too. We ate out at Mamma Trattoria on corner of Gertigstrasse on our first night and then at Arcada, turn right on Gertigstrasse (Portugeuse). You need to reserve even for early evening when it opens. We were lucky enough to get a table reserved within 45 minutes of it opening that night. Staff very friendly, helpful and spoke English in both places. Excellent food and good value too. We went for a 15 minute walk to Lake Alster to walk off the food. We spent many hours around the Harbour area and walked across the Elbe using the underground tunnel with a lot of steps, but there is also a lift. Great views from both sides, fascinating watching the various boats/ships on the River. Sunday we got up early to go to the Fischmarket which was an experience, very busy. We then went by regional double decker train 45 minutes to Lubeck. Home of marzipan so went to the café/shop and made several purchases. Amazing to see the wedding cakes made out of marzipan in the side windows of the shop. Good 3.5 hours just walking round the streets soaking up the atmosphere. Monday back to Harbour, beauty of Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday was all shops are shut so much quieter on pavements. Cafe's and Restaurants open still and buses/trains running. Had a lovely meal midday at Melange near the Rathaus, then walked it off by window shopping. Bakeries for breakfast were wonderful and lunch choice way beyond anything in Britain, types of breads available as well as various multiple fillings. We got a 5 person, 9 hour card from the Airport Office for 11.80 total price which took us from the airport to our apartment and then once our daughter joined us could travel on same card with us into city centre. To get back to airport on final day and for her to get to the Hauptbahnhof for train back to Gottingen was 3.20 each single tickets. Airport was S1 to Barmbek and then Bus 173 for 4 stops which took 30 minutes in total. From Hauptbahnhof and to city centre Bus no 6 from Sempstrasse. Easiest transfer ever done. Fantastic!
