Hamburg hostels the place to be in May
The stadium is situated just minutes away from the Reeperbahn - the region's famous entertainment quarter - which is great news, not just for soccer aficionados but also anyone else who's been taken along for the ride and is, perhaps, not as interested in football as they are in checking out the sights and sounds of a foreign city.
PR Newswire tells me that, apparently, the Reeperbahn has a bit of a reputation, originally used as a red-light district by sailors coming into port, although this quickly changed in the 1960s when the Beatles used it to start their career. These days, it's renowned for its bars, clubs and pubs, while those wanting to explore Hamburg further might like to have a look at Europe's largest inner city port.
If it's the football you're after, don't forget to check out the new logo for the Hamburg final, which was recently revealed during a ceremony at the East Hotel Cinema in the city. And if you're lucky enough to be a German resident, tickets for the final - which is being held on May 12th - go on sale imminently, at 10:00 local time on December 1st until January 15th.
