    We started a facebook group for people in their 20's in Hamburg. We had a meet up the other week which was pretty great. If you're searching for younger people who speak English this is a better place to find them:

    Yeah sorry I didn't make it too. Haven't got a good excuse like everyone else, I was just very hungover! We'll have to reorganise it for another time, since noone made it!

    Just a technicality but isn't brunch pre 12? Surely at 1 it's just lunch!?

    I'm up for Sunday, although I don't know if brunch is a very twenty something activity! Me and a mate are going to schanze on Saturday night as well if anyone wants to tag along to that?

    This is exactly what i've been looking for for ages! I'm 22 and been here a while but meeting people under the age of 30 is practically impossible! Most of the meetups posted on Hamburg groups are populated with 30-50 somethings, who whilst nice people aren't the sort of group i thought i'd be hanging out with.

    I've just started training for http://www.dhsvh.de/ and studied politics a while back so i guess we have some vaguely similar interests, there's a link to my Facebook profile on my TT profile so you can check i'm not serial killer before replying!

    http://www.wohn-hh.de/

    This website is privately owned by a landlord in Hamburg. He's a pretty sound guy and he doesn't charge any agency fees or anything so moving with him is comparatively cheap. The guy also seems to own most of Hamburg so the stuff available to rent is always changing.

    After living with a friend for a few months i managed to save enough to offer to pay 6-months rent in advance, which i think counteracted the fact that i'm only 22 which appears to make me a risky tenant to most landlords. Writing this on my application form seemed to jump me to the top of the queue, and when i got accepted as the new tenant the landlord told me i didn't need to pay any rent in advance. Also, after living there for 5 months i saw he had a nicer apartment around the corner and he offered to let me switch apartments there and then and all it cost me was the difference in the deposit.

    5 Star recommendation,it's pretty exceptional to find a landlord in any country who isn't a total knob.

    Hi, I'm from England and just moved out to Hamburg before Christmas. I speak shitty German so would love the chance to swap my English for help with German!

  10. billyfication added a post in a topic: Picnic in the Park   

    This is an event copied off the couchsurfing website.

    On Saturday (20.04) at 2pm a load of people from Hamburg's couch surfing community have organised a picnic in the park on Martin Luther str. behind St. Michaels kirche.

    Nobody attending know's one another and the event is designed to allow new people to Hamburg (and also old) a chance to make some much needed friends! Should be a good way to find other ex-pats and chance to use your native tongue rather than struggling with German.

    Bring whatever standard picnic stuff you think is needed and a good sense of humour.

    Cheers Tor I'll pop in after work one day this week and check out their savoury section.

    A Scotch egg is a life changing experience. All the fun of a Sausage roll without the mess left by pastry, and a cheeky boiled egg inside...god I miss home!

    Also anyone know where to buy Cider- Not $hitty Strongbow but the good stuff like Westons black top, or even that Sweedish kopparberg?

    On a similar theme. Anyone know where you can find Scotch Eggs? I've been out of England too long and i could commit a minor crime to get my hands on one!
