OUR FAVOURITE HAMBURGER./
MORITZ BAUER IS NOT JUST A TALENTED FILMMAKER, HE'S ALSO A SERIOUSLY INSPIRATIONAL GUY./ HIS POSTS ABOUT TRAVEL, FITNESS + MOTIVATION CAUGHT OUR ATTENTION SOME TIME AGO, + HIS WORK HAS SINCE BECOME ONE OF OUR FAVOURITE THINGS ON SOCIAL MEDIA./
BASED IN HAMBURG, MORITZ IS INCREDIBLY PROUD OF HIS CITY + HE WAS KEEN TO SHARE IT WITH F1FTY./ WHEN WE REACHED OUT TO HIM (PRE-COVID!!), IT WAS CLEAR THAT HE JUST GOT US: "I WANT PEOPLE TO TRAVEL MORE," HE SAID. "IT DECREASES STIGMAS, STEREOTYPES + RESULTING DISCRIMINATION ISSUES, SO I'M HAPPY TO PROMOTE THE CAUSE OF INTERNATIONAL INTERACTIONS."/
WE ASKED OUR FAVOURITE HAMBURGER TO SHARE SOME OF HIS FAVOURITE PLACES IN THE CITY...
"Speicherstadt is a part of the city you will find nowhere similar in the world. Small canals, iron bridges + red brick warehouses are an essential part of the typical image of the city."
"My favourite place in Hamburg is the Außenalster. - It's the outer part of the Alster Lake in the middle of the city, surrounded by beautiful parks + an 8-kilometre footpath, perfect for Sunday strolls or running."
"Last but not least is, of course, the Elbphilharmonie - the opera house right next to the river Elbe. It is at the centre of the city, next to the harbour - but its majestic yet modern appearance is not the only cool thing about it. - You can go up to the 17th floor for free + check out the view from the balcony that wraps all around the building."
