From the Hamburg harbour to the heart of Europe: Hotel Hafen Hamburg apprentices conquer Brussels

Hamburg, 08.11.2023

On the horizon of Hamburg's harbour, where ships sail along the Elbe day and night, our apprentices began their journey to an equally vibrant place: Brussels, the political heart of Europe. At Hotel Hafen Hamburg, we attach great importance to the apprentices' training and personal development, which is why we decided to organise a very special excursion for this year's apprentice trip that would both broaden the horizons of our junior staff and strengthen their team spirit.

Early in the morning, when most people were still in bed, our adventurers arrived at Hamburg Central Station. At 6.45 am on the dot, with their bags packed, they boarded the train that would take them from one big city to another. They travelled directly to the Belgian metropolis via Cologne, where the JAM Hotel in Brussels welcomed our apprentices with open arms.

After a short break to process the impressions of the journey and recharge their batteries, a city tour took the group through the lively streets of Brussels. Every step was a new chapter in their travel diary: historic squares, ornate architecture and the flair of a city that is an integral part of European history. Afterwards, the experiences of the day were shared over dinner - including the famous Belgian fries - and the evening ended for some in the pubs of the old town, for others quietly in the hotel.

The following day was characterised by science and art: the Atomium, a landmark of the atomic age, and the Design Museum were waiting to be explored. The visit to the European Parliament offered an insight into the political work that characterises Brussels. The Parlamentarium, the visitor's world of the European Parliament, was an optional part of the programme and a highlight for apprentices interested in politics.

Before heading home, the last day offered the opportunity to discover Brussels city centre independently. Boutiques, cafés and the inviting squares offered enough material for last memories before the journey back to Hamburg at 11am.

This apprentice trip was filled with new experiences for everyone. Not only did it develop individual personalities, it also strengthened the sense of togetherness at Hotel Hafen Hamburg. It is experiences like this that turn a group of colleagues into a real team. We are proud of our apprentices and look forward to accompanying and supporting them on their journey.
