Friday

It’s Friday afternoon, you are travelling with your mates, all looking forward to a fantastic time in Hamburg. The self check-in went pretty smooth, everybody drops their bags in their rooms, outfit check-up and half an hour later you meet with your friends for a first drink at the Ruby Lotti Bar.

The lights on Reeperbahn, the old red light and amusement district, come to life. On your way there you pass by the Heiligengeistfeld, location of the Hamburger Dom, a huge amusement park, that takes place three times a year. Have a stroll, challenge yourself with thrilling rides and get some shots.

10:00pm

You continue on Reeperbahn and enjoy a drink at one of the countless bars in this part of the city. Lehmitz, Pyjama Bar and Old Sailor have passed the test of time and are hidden hotspots.

04:00am

Grab a cab that takes you back to Ruby Lotti Hotel, where you can rest your head after all the headbanging.

Saturday

You start your Saturday with a healthy breakfast at Ruby Lotti. Today you will discover another part of the city, starting with the Speicherstadt, the old warehouses. From Ruby Lotti just follow in the direction of the new philharmonic building, the latest landmark of the city.

1:00pm

Walking along the river Elbe makes you hungry, so why not take a little detour and check the Portugiesenviertel right next to the harbor. It’s filled with unique little shops and a variety of good Mediterranean and Portuguese restaurants.

03:00pm

Harbourcruises are always fun, but tickets can be expensive. The way cheaper alternative is a ride with the countless ferries that belong to the public transport system and can be used with a regular underground or bus ticket.

05:00pm

The old customs area was brought back to life and became a playground for innovative concepts and modern architecture. Here close to the Wholesale fruit market and the central station you find the Bazic Lounge, where the Owner Oliver welcomes you for a special tasting tour in his aging cellar. Meet the Destiller and get to know everything about Vodka Bazic , a Hamburg original. Tours are by appointment only. You can check availability online.

8:00pm

Start your Saturday night right at Brooklyn Burger Bar, one of the best burger places in town, that also serves dangerously good drinks. When you show your Ruby Key Card at the counter, you will get a shot for free and if its your birthday, you will receive the ultra-delicious New York Cheesecake.

11:00pm

Still enough energy? Then have a walk back to the Oberhafenarea to party the night away at Club Moloch. Electro, Minimaltechno and House dominate their playlists. But watch your energy level, the night will be long and there is so much going on on Sunday morning (not only in the after hour clubs).

Sunday

05:00am                             

Every Sunday people gather around the Fischauktionshalle to join the Hamburger Fischmarkt. Whether you woke up early, had a shower and start your day here with all kind of goods, flowers and of course fresh fish or you come straight from the club and just continue to party, it’s always fun!
