What do you love most about Your City?

Hamburg is a very green city, with many trees, parks etc. But the most beautiful places are the Alster lake in the center of the city and the Port of Hamburg. Walking along the river Elbe early in the morning is the perfect start into the day.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

The favorite breakfast I get in the best “restaurant” in the city, the kitchen of my wife. She cooks ayurvedic food and that is delicious. For lunch and dinner I love to be in the Nikkei Nine Restaurant in the “Vier Jahreszeiten Hotel”.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – I am practicing Qigong. Ten years ago I had a physical break down and discovered Qigong. It helped me to recover without any doctor or pharmaceuticals and since that time I practice Qigong every day, sometimes several times a day. It is a 4.000 year old self healing method from China, the best way to find your balance in stressful everyday life.

10:00 AM – At ten I have my first breakfast while reading the newspapers to be informed about market developments. For 15 hours after dinner I don’t eat anything.

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

Sometimes ayurcedic food at home, sometimes Lebanese or Indian food. But my favorite Lunch spot is the Deniz Yildiz restaurant in the Asian part of Istanbul, directly at the Bosphorus.

7:00 PM - I enjoy dinner at home or in a restaurant with friends.

11:00 PM – I am sleeping after I meditated before together with my wife. Or I enjoy my life…

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

I need liters of water with ginger during the day. And in the evening I love to relax with a gin tonic or a good Sake.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

Twitter. I follow the most important newspapers and news channels and some great guys from politics (like Fareed Zaharia) and economics (like Paul Krugman) during the day, so that I am updated all time. My favorite Instagram Accounts are those of my four children.

What should everyone try at least once?

To forget everything you learned from your parents, school teachers and relidion and to find your own way through meditation.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

In a great city like Paris, Istanbul or Shanghai. To explore the city without any plan. If you do this intense and without any prejudices you have the chance to understand the city and the people living there.
