Damn……….this Breakfast satisfied all my Needs considering the aspects of Flavour & Variety!

HEJ PAPA is a small Breakfast & Lunch Gourmet in the middle of Hamburg City. At the first sight it seems very plain and rustic, the decoration simple, a few big community tables and the counter in the middle of the Location with an OPEN KITCHEN kitchen. The Menu is short but diverse. They really care about the food quality and serve & sell selfmade Bread Buns, Marmelade & Co. Their Quitten (Quinces) Marmelade & Goat Cheese are the BEST!

A big Breakfast Plate (enough for 2 People) costs 10,50 Euros – no Beverages included.


Address: Hej Papa, Feinkostgeschäft, Poolstraße 32, 20355 Hamburg

Corral de la Moreria is the Showcase of quintessential Flamenco Art! 

Corral de la Moreria is a relatively small venue with a small Stage but every known Flamenco Artist has been on this particular stage. The atmosphere intimate and the show intoxicating. Dramatic and at the same time seductive! Service and quality of food and drinks are excellent! Corral del la Moreria opened 1956 and still, this very day, you find the finest “Tablao Flamenco” Dancers, Musicans, Singers and other Artsist performing. No Playback, it is all “live”.

Shows presented daily. A Ticket for the Show is about 50 Euros/Person (does not incl. Drinks or Food). I highly recommend a visit.

Their guestlist includes Mohammed Ali, Omar Shariff, Marlene Dietrich, Sandra Bullock, Burt Lancaster, Ron Wood & Nick Nolte.

Address: Corral de la Moreria, Calle de la Moreria, 17, 28005 Madrid, Spanien

Unfortunately i did not have a lot of time for Sightseeing because i was busy working & – yes i admit – shopping!

I still made it to “Las Ventas”, the biggest Bullfight Arena in Europe and the third biggest in the world after Mexico and Valencia. The Tour takes around 30 min- l hour. Read & see more here: http://www.crazy-tripz.com/?p=1454

And of course i had to visit one of the most important Art Museums in the Wold “El Prado“. As we all know i am a little “Lowbrow” if it comes to Art, but now i can say: Check, been there, done it! The Museum is enormous and impressive. TIP for Art Fans: you can spend the half or even the whole day there! The Entrance is 14 Euros for Adults. You may rent a Audio Guide or a “real” Museum Guide.

If yo go by Metro exit @ Banco de España (the Red Line No 2). From there you walk trough the “Paseo del Prado“, passing “Plaza de Neptuno”, the “Ritz Hotel”, “Palacio de Communicaciones”, “Palacio de Villahermosa”, “Fuente de la Cibeles” and the “Congreso de los Diputados”. It takes about 10 min.  The “Puerta de Alcalá”, “Plaza Independencia” & the “Parque del Bueno Retiro” are right around the Corner!

Las Ventas por los buenos y por los malos!

Missing an actual Bullfight is reasonable but visting the biggest Bullfight Arena in Europe “Las Ventas” is a “Must Do”. Las Ventas is the third biggest Arena in the world after Mexico  and Valencia. It is one of the most important Traditions in Spain. The proud of the Nation! Bullfight season runs from march to october. Off-Season the Arena is used for Circuses, Shows or Theater – but still open for Visitors. The Tours takes around 30 min- l hour (12 euro + Audio Guide). Tickets for a Bullfight start from 5 euros (Andanalas – seated very high and on the sunny side of the arena) to max. 150 euros (seated low, close to the Arena and in the shadow).

Address: Las Ventas, Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas, c/ Alcalá, 237, 28028 Madrid

Make sure to visit at least the Arena. It is scary & at the same time interesting to look behind the scenes:

If you do have the chance to see a Bullfight – make sure you bring a white tissue! By swinging or not swinging the white tissue the crowd shows how much they like or dislike the Torero (Matador) & the Bullfight!

Avoid traffic, use the Metro!!

Cleary one of my favourite Metro Systems in Europe. The metro stations as well as the trains are modern and clean, fast and the connections are excellent. Indeed i have never waited more than 5 Min. for a train. The tickets are affortable (one way about 1.50 euros, a day ticket about 8.60 euros).
WATCH OUT: the Madrid Metro System is intricate and has a lot of stairs! Some musicians make the metro ride more pleasant by playing live their Violin or Gitar in the metro hall ways! Have a great ride.
