The Airline Business team are back on the road again this summer and it seems like Germany is the place to be for airline conferences .

We’ve got Aircraft Interiors coming up in Hamburg on 18-20 May and then we’re off to the IATA AGM in Berlin on 6-8 June.

This is the bit where you come in. We’re after some top tips on what to do in these two great German cities. We’ll then compile your suggestions and publish them in the Airline Business Dailies which will be handed out at the shows and available on our website.

We’re happy to give you a mention as a small thank you for your help, but if you’d rather remain an elusive mystery contributor, we will protect your anonymity – whichever you prefer.

So, where are the best places to eat in Berlin and Hamburg? Are there any secret places, off the beaten track, which you’d recommend? What are the must-see sights? Are there local delicacies which people visiting the conference should try?

There are lots of ways to get in touch with your suggestions:

-Message me through my VictoriaOnAir Twitter account

-E-mail me at victoria.moores@flightglobal.com

-Or respond to this blog by adding a comment below

Thanks in advance for your help – I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Best wishes,

    In Hamburg, if you’ve got a couple hours to spend and the wheather’s fine, take a boat trip round the Alster canals. The scenery is great and it’s a chance to have a discussion away from professional listeners. Boats leave the Jungfernstieg quai (S-bahn station of the same name) every 2 or 3 hours, depending on which tour you take.

    Alternatively, take your coffee at the historic terrace of Sagebiels Fährhaus in Blankenese, and enjoy the view over the Elbe river and to the Airbus plant on the other side. With luck (or good planning) you can watch a Beluga arriving. Afterwards you might take a walk through the picturesque quarter of Blankenese from there (wear flat heels, it’s all stairs).
