Hamburg is Germany's second largest city and, much like Liverpool, as a port town is home to many vibrant neighbourhoods and a plethora of fashion, music and cultural hot spots.
A new year means a fresh start with plenty of adventures to look forward to. To get your holiday bug tingling, we’ve pulled together a list of 6 destinations we think should be on your 2017 bucket list! So here it goes…
- Majorca, Spain
Majorca is truly stunning in the sunshine, so if this is the main reason for your visit you should look to visit between May and September where temperatures can reach up to 26°C at the height of summer. The island also holds annual Spanish festivities in January for Sant Sebastian and June for Sant Joan. Majorca also serves up some of the best beaches in the Balearics with hundreds of them ranging from long, golden and sandy to hidden, small and pebbly.

- Faro, Portugal
Faro’s surrounding areas have plenty to offer, and the Algarve itself has countless resorts and long stretches of beaches which are ideal for sun worshippers. Albufeira is a livelier destination which also has a picturesque old town that’s definitely worth a visit! Lagos is known for its impressive 16th century architecture and chilled out beach, whilst Olhos D’Agua is the place to be if you fancy sampling the catch of the day in one of its great eateries in the harbour.
