Full description
Discover the Schanzenviertel and the Karolinenviertel in Hamburg, and get to know these two trendy districts! The Schanzenviertel was once an early defense post for the city of Hamburg. The “Schanze”, as it is affectionately known by its inhabitants, is now a popular residential neighborhood. In recent years the Schanzenviertel and Karolinenviertel have developed from working class districts to popular and trendy neighborhoods with interesting restaurants, bars, and clubs, and also where Tim Mälzer opened his restaurant. To simply consider the area because of the high profile it has earned through regular demonstrations does not do justice to the neighbourhoods' many facets. That's why on this guided tour you will also learn about then changes and problems in the district. Immerse yourself in the history of the foreland of Hamburg located in front of the former embankments and get to know one of Hamburg’s youngest districts. Take a look behind the scenes and leave the main streets to visit the old factory sites and back courtyards. Stroll past the many local independent shops that make the neighborhoods so special. In addition to learning interesting information, you will also have many fantastic photo opportunities. See for yourself!

    Kurzweilig und sehr interessant

    Es war eine sehr interessante und kurzweilige Führung durch die beiden Viertel. Besonders hat uns gefallen, dass unsere sehr nette Führerin über reichlich Hintergrundinfos über Örtlichkeiten und Gebäude verfügte und diese auch sehr unterhaltsam weitergegeben hat. Absolut empfehlenswerte Tour für Leute, die abseits der üblichen Stadtführungen Spannendes und Besonderes über das Schanzen- und das Karolinenviertel erfahren möchten.
