I'm in negotiations right now for a job in Hamburg. I have a few questions about the city though and hope someone can shed some light. What's the night life like? I'm not really one for clubs but do love good food and wine and live music (jazz, blues). Are there some areas of the city that are better for others in this regard? I hear there are some rreally rough areas of the city and hope to find a place in a nice part of town with some good restaurants and galleries/museums. Can anyone offer up some good locations for that? Thanks.
I get loads of junk mail stuffed in my letter box each week which is a problem for me as I am away for long periods of time. Is there any service that I can approach to reduce the amount of junk? Most of it seems to be just fliers and newspapers from the local furniture stores and supermarkets, but there is an increasing amount of stuff being posted also.
