After a long morning and a long sleep we met at the harbor and walked around to see the ship Cap San Diego as well as Rickmer Rickmer's. We didn't go into the museum ships but saw them from the outside. After a crêpe we walked to the underground station Landungsbrücken and bought tickets for the Hamburg Dungeon and the Miniatur Wonderland at a tourist info.

With our VIP tickets we didn't have to wait and could go into the Dungeon right away. Unfortunately it was so hot and stuffy I had to go outside for some fresh air. But in the end it was a nice experience. We went back in and with our group through the rest of the dungeon, which explained the history of Hamburg in an interesting manner.

After about 1,5 hours we got out and walked to the Kehrwiederspitze and took the ferry back to Landungsbrücken, from where we took the underground to Mönckebergstreet and into a McDonalds.
St. Michaelis
Through some of the masses of shops we walked towards the main station and decided, to go to St. Pauli.

We arrived there and when we came up from the underground there were thousands of people walking in a certain direction. That was when we saw that we were exactly at the Hamburg Harley Days, which is a large meeting of bikers from July 13 to 15. As thousands of people there were thousands of bikes all around, a lot to eat and three stages with live music.

We then decided to go to the Reeperbahn, the real interesting but sinful street in St. Pauli. There were many pubs and peep shows as well as certain boutiques with certain things to buy. After that we walked by the Schmidt's theaters towards the harbor again and then home from there.
