Coffee-to-Fly – Or how to cure your itchy feet

This is one of my favourite places in Hamburg. Till last week I thought you could only reach it by car, but that’s actually not true. Before I start to explain how to get there, I’ll give you an idea of Coffee-to-Fly.

Actually it’s just a normal bridge called “photographer’s bridge” close to the airport Hamburg Fuhlsbüttel. The first time I was there, it was in the middle of the night and I saw many landing strip lights and some aircraft landing late at night.

During the day, with good weather, it’s a great choice for watching airplanes taking off and landing. There is a small Café where you can get affordable Latte Macchiato for €3.10 or a Carlsberg’s beer for €3.00 and snacks like sausages, hotdogs and donuts.

Coffee-to-Fly is open 365 days a year – spring, summer, autumn, winter – always. Have a small holiday while watching other people going by on the hundred of planes that pass here daily.

Give it a try, you won’t regret it! And the best of ALL: it’s free!! If you’re on a tight budget, don’t drink anything in the Café, but bring your thermos flask or cold coke with you.

How to get there: Take bus #24 from Langenhorn Markt [U1] or Niendorf Markt [U2] or bus #193 from Poppenbüttel [S1] or Langenhorn Markt [U1] to Station “Wrangelkoppel”, follow the sign “Aussichtsplattform” for around 15 minutes, there you are!

PS: thanks 4 all the wonderful mails I’ve gotten – it’s wonderful to hear you liked it.
