Hamburg’s FURRRst Cat Café

The Eimsbüttel district in Hamburg welcomes its very first cat café. Following Munich and Nuremberg, this is the third “Katzentempel” to open its doors.

According to Forbes, 70% of Airbnb users choose it because of the low price and more than 50% choose the start up because of the individual furnishing and
