Field Trip for BA14 Tourism Students

For Tourism majors the third semester started off with a student field trip to Hamburg from the 18th to the 20th of September. We have Professor Dr. Hummel to thank for this opportunity, who designed the programmefor the fun-packed weekend at our request.

To begin with, an interesting insight into the tourism industry was provided to us through a detailed discussion with Kai Dieterich (Senior Manager Marketing Services) in the Hamburg Convention Bureau (HCB) building. As the hub for economic and tourism grants, the business of the HCB is very exciting for every tourism student. In this regard, Herr Dieterich was able to show us an array of areas, which could be of interest for one or more students in the near future.

Evening events were completely left up to our dean, who took us out to dinner in Hamburg’s inner harbor before leading us in the direction of the Reeperbahn, which as far as tourist attractions go, should not be scoffed at.

The next morning, fresh and alert, we sailed up and down the Alster in the pouring rain, making it back just in time to slip into some dry clothes before arriving on time at the Mövenpick Hotel Hamburg. What’s special about this four-star hotel is most certainly its distinctive design, characterized by the water tower, in which the hotel was built before opening in 2007. For many, walking through the various rooms (the suite being the highlight) served as a mental preview of things to come when working in this business. We were able to ask several questions and thus get a good idea of what it’s like to work in a hotel.

The exciting day was rounded off with a grand tour on a barge that took us past all major points of interest along the harbor, through the Speicherstadt warehouse district to the Elbe Philharmonic Hall and musical theatres. Already quite exhausted, many were practically rocked to sleep, so it was no surprise afterwards when we called it a night rather early.

The next day would prove which students had real stamina when a few participants managed to rouse themselves at five in the morning while it was still dark to head off to the fish market. After all, a visit to Hamburg is not complete without a fish sandwich. Finally, it was time for everyone to bid the fair city adieu before safely arriving back in Cologne.
