Register here for the course.

Hamburg—Germany’s second-largest city and seaport—offers you lots to explore. Walk along the harbor, see the sights, and plot your Hamburg game plan.

Hamburg highlights
Visit the port. See Hamburg and feel its maritime vibes on a boat tour. View the fish market, pass contemporary seaside architecture and the Elbe beach, touring across the port and back.

Honored as a Historic Landmark of Civil Engineering in Germany, the Old Elbe Tunnel was the first river tunnel on the European continent. Access the entry point from the harbor, walking to Steinwerder and back to St. Pauli in a few minutes.

Marvel at the Museum Ships—such as Rickmer Rickmers and Cap San Diego—Hamburg’s heralded historical ships, moored by the harbor.

If you’re a fan of model ships, U-boats and military history, visit International Maritimes Museum Hamburg, with the world’s largest private collection of maritime treasures, in historic Speicherstadt.

Appreciate the art and architecture of the oldest parish church in Hamburg, St. Peter’s Church, just a few blocks from Town Hall. Bronze lion-head door handles grace the west portal and date from 1342. A gothic mural that dates from 1460 is in the north portion of the church. The bell tower is up 544 steps and offers a grand view over Rathausmarkt, the Town Hall market, and Alster Lake.

Impressive sandstone Town Hall, also called Rathaus or City Hall, houses the senate and parliament among its 647 rooms. Note the staircase made of Sardinian marble, a commentary on the course of human life.

Check out Miniatur Wunderland, the largest model railway in the world. Close to the miniature wonderland, the canal of Nikolaifleet is one of the oldest spots in Hamburg, where you can see well-preserved Old Hamburg townhouses.

St. Pauli is a unique quarter in Hamburg, a great place to walk around and absorb the street art, get a drink, and shop.

Fun fact: Hamburg has more bridges than Venice.

Hop on a double-decker bus for a fun city tour. Take in the Landungsbrücken, the breathtaking harbor, historical Speicherstadt, modern HafenCity, famous Reeperbahn, the ‘Michel,” the Alster, Town Hall, museums, and villas.

Want more action? Take a beach walk on the Elbstrand, bike by Alster Lake, and kayak Hamburg’s canals.

Relax in the Rissen district, by the Elbe River on the Wittenberg shore. Nearby, explore the Wittenberg lighthouse.

Relish the views from the bistro and the collections in noted art museum, Hamburger Kunsthalle.

Taste Hamburg
Nosh at Barefood Deli. This bright, cozy atmosphere was introduced by a famous German actor and is family-owned. Homemade beer and wine, Sunday brunch, DJs in the evening—food and fun for everyone.

Dine with a view of Hamburg harbor at Fischereihafen, where fish dishes rule the day.

Another great fish eatery is Schabi’s Fischimbiss, where you can pick your own fish, eat inside or out, and enjoy the experience.

Insider tip: If you’re more interested in exploring than sitting down to dine, pop into a Hamburg grocery store for cheap-and-go items. Groceries often give out generous samples, so keep your eyes open!

You can see it from the Elbe bridges: Entenwerder 1. What a view from this pontoon eatery! Public Coffee Roasters is next door, so the cappuccino, espresso and coffee are amazing.

In a former pharmacy, the Brooklyn Burger Bar’s offerings are fresh and homemade.

Taste chocolate at Chocoversum. Learn about the process and create your own chocolate bar.

Enjoy Luicella’s Ice Cream in the St. Georg or St. Pauli locations.

Taste Scandinavia at Karlsons, where the Norwegian apple pancake is but one of the offerings you’ll long remember.

Klimperkiste is a bar and an eatery, so you don’t have to choose. Good for all night or a nightcap.

We’ll meet and begin the 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training at the Holiday Inn Aberdeen, West, on June 6. Register here for the course and count on seeing a bit of your host city while you’re there.

Experience Aberdeen, the Granite City
Aberdeen’s rich history began as two separate towns on the North Sea. Along the Don River were Old Aberdeen and the cathedral and university; New Aberdeen, on the Dee River, was the hub for trading and the fishing village. Today, Aberdeen is Britain’s largest granite-exporting industry and the chief seaport of northern Scotland. Stop in at Aberdeen Maritime Museum on Shiprow, overlooking the busy harbor. Learn about the city’s legendary relationship with the sea through collections spanning shipbuilding, fast sailing ships, fishing, and port history. The museum is the UK’s sole location with displays on the North Sea’s gas and oil industry. Catch more seafaring history at Fooddee (pronounced “FIT-ee” locally), an old fishing village straight from a postcard. You may see dolphins leaping up at the harbor mouth!

Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire make up part of Scotland’s castle country, as in more than 300 castles. Listen to the sound of the traditional Scots language, a local Doric, while you’re drinking up the atmosphere here. Play a round of golf at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, founded in 1780, while you take in North Sea coastal views. Enjoy the rugged cliffs and sandy bays at St. Cyrus National Nature Reserve, or explore mountains, lochs, wildlife, and distilleries at Cairngorms National Park.

History and architecture
Get to know a bit of Aberdeen history beginning with St. Machar’s Cathedral, (1424) and Provost Skene’s House (c. 1545). Visit the Union Street parish church of St. Nicholas, divided into two parts: the West Church (built in 1755) is separate from the East Church (built in 1838), divided by the original 13th-century transept and 19th-century steeple. Compare two medieval bridges, the Brig o’ Balgownie (1320), which spans the Don, and the Old Bridge of Dee (1527). You’ll notice a mix of styles, from the Neoclassical-style Music Hall (1822) to Broad Street’s Marischal College (1844), the latter said to be the largest granite building in the world. Founded in 1845, King’s College, now the University of Aberdeen and home of five Nobel Laureates, is known for its famous crown spire and Renaissance style.

Fun fact: Yes, the jaw-dropping architecture is gray granite and there’s a lot of it. Look closely and you’ll see the buildings take on a silver sparkle in sunlight due to their high mica content.

Eateries and entertainment
Books & Beans, 22 Belmont St: Coffee + WiFi

Foodstory, 13-15 Thistle St: Soups, salads, scones, lasagna, great coffee, and fun folks

The Lemon Tree, 5 West North St: Cool beverages and music

The Sanddollar Cafe & Bistro, 2 Beach Esplanade: Delicious dinners, ample wine list, and jazz nights

Ross Bakery, 44 Chapel St: Pies, breads and scones, burgers and sandwiches, cakes

Moonfish, 9 Correction Wynd: Modern British cuisine, generous gin list, set amid medieval streets of Aberdeen’s merchant quarter with views of the 12th-century St. Nicholas church

Maggie’s Grill, 242 Holburn Street:  Angus steaks; locally sourced hickory-smoked pulled pork; pastrami; locally sourced cheeses, vegetables, breads, beer, and coffee; all served with the motto,“Field to fork and made with soul!”

The Silver Darling, North Pier, Pocra Quay: Dine with panoramic views of the water.  Here’s a sample of the scrumptious fare: brown crab, prawns and pan-fried sea trout with carrot & cardamom purée

Almondine, 39 – 43 Thistle Street: Macarons of every description, afternoon tea, and a French bakery

Grab your camera and get ready to see Cork, easy to cover on foot. This city on the southwest coast of Ireland has a history steeped in religious, sporting, musical, and culinary traditions. Cork was founded in the 6th century by Saint Fin Barre and is home to Murphy’s Irish Stout, beautiful Fitzgerald Park on the River Lee, and plenty of rugby.

With its heritage dating to the 12th century, the Church of St Anne is home to the famous Four-Faced Liar and one of Cork’s most iconic landmarks, the Shandon Bells. Climb to the first floor and play the bells; the tunes are on numbered cards. Go up to the steeple’s top for an amazing panoramic view of “the rebel city,” as Cork has been known since the Wars of the Roses.

Here’s a little something to tuck into your mobile to help you in speaking like and interpreting the locals.

Course attendees should bring safety incidents or quality issues from their facility for a team exercise. These may be either written reports or, alternately, you may have knowledge of an incident without a written report. We’ll divide into teams of 2-4 people, with each team analyzing a different problem.
