  • Are you a framed passenger afraid of new people, cultures and impressions? Stay away and go rather to the Hard rock cafe. In the Schanzenviertel meets you hippies, people who go barefoot, trendy people, poor people, and people like me or you. Or that I met, an older man who led his scooter down the street and made engine sounds with his mouth. Yes it says a little bit about the Schanzenviertel. Have you run out of gas and money. Don't let this stop you. Otherwise, the area is characterised by anarchism and an alternative lifestyle, this ensures you fast on all the graffiti. The area is full of small shops and restaurants. You don't have to go hungry here. Affordable it is. We had two great Italian pizzas in Il Camino as well as two large beers. 20 euros! Go here, it's worth it:)

  • We had booked a ski tour in the framework of operation excursion. It was a great, informative and delicious tour with Alex by the Hamburg-based edge and Karolinenviertel. Very much recommended!

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
