Every MEININGER city has its own great places that in springtime are especially compelling for visitors and locals alike. Our employees let you in on some of their favourite places to spend the sunny spring days.
Banu (Junior Operations Manager), Hamburg
Favourite place: The old Elbe Tunnel
Walk through the old Elbe Tunnel from the Landungsbrücken to the viewpoint on the other side. It is so quiet there, you can take a picnic blanket, snacks and drinks along and simply watch the hustle and bustle in the harbour from across the water.
Yoko (Receptionist), Munich
Favourite place: Frühlingsanlagen park
Alight at Sendlinger Tor and stroll past little cafés and antique shops as far as Reichenbachbrücke bridge. Buy a beer at the old kiosk beside the bridge and enjoy the first rays of sunshine whilst dabbling your toes in the River Isar.
As soon as spring arrives, the old and young meet here to chill out, have fun and enjoy Munich’s beautiful scenery.
Andreas (Sales Manager South), Vienna
Favourite place: The Danube Canal
In spring, the Danube Canal is what we in Vienna would call “a woansinn”. Travel directly on the underground in the city centre out into the lush green suburbs. You will find countless little bars and cafés, many people and a superb atmosphere here. It is a great place to go to enjoy the first rays of sunshine of the year – particularly when the days get longer and you come here for “an g’spritzten” (white wine spritzer) or “a seit’l” (small beer).
Matthias (Social Media Coordinator), Berlin
Favourite place: Preußenpark
The so-called “Thaiwiese” in Preußenpark feels like an entirely different world. Every Sunday, local Thais prepare by far the most authentic Asian food in the city here at little stalls, which can then be purchased for very reasonable prices. So pack up your picnic blanket and go discover Asia’s culinary delights at the heart of a park in Berlin.
