Hamburg: Schanzenviertel Culinary Tour

1. Hamburg: Schanzenviertel Culinary Tour

Experience a culinary walking tour of Hamburg's Shanzenviertel. Characterized by the wide variety of cafes and bars, the district will delight you with endless culinary options. Head into five local food hotspots and try the region's flavors as your guide explains their backstories. Learn about the history of this iconic neighborhood from your local guide along the way. The Sternschanze was once a star-shaped defense structure. Today, it enjoys a cult status similar to the Reeperbahn. Nowhere else in Hamburg will you have the opportunity to see the fight against gentrification and commerce at first hand, and on the tour you will discuss current topics such as the increase in rent prices and the trade and interest of investors. Explore a district that has emerged as one of the trendiest areas in the city. With an area of 0.60 square kilometers, the Sternschanze is one of the smallest but also most exciting neighborhoods in the whole of Hamburg. Right in the heart of the district is the left-wing autonomous center, the “Rote Flora.” Follow in the footsteps of Carl Hagenbeck and the true “revolutionaries,” and visit the old piano factory. Along the way, stop at some of the local favorites in the area and enjoy the culinary diversity of the district with five different delicacies, as well as hear exciting stories and discover true craftsmanship.

Hamburg: Schanzenviertel & Karolinenviertel 2-Hour Tour

2. Hamburg: Schanzenviertel & Karolinenviertel 2-Hour Tour

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!

This was our first time taking part in a tour like this and we were totally thrilled. Now we were lucky enough to walk alone through the Schanzenviertel with the guide Bettina 10. This made the tour particularly informative. The restaurants we visited with the food on offer really picked us up. A potpurri of Afghan, Parkistan, Portuguese, French and finally Vietnamese dishes. Bettina 10 answered all of our questions and due to the size of the group we had a great evening in the Schanzenviertel. We would do it again any time.

We were very lucky to be able to do the tour with Uta on a Friday evening. Uta is a very courteous guide, optimally prepared and on this tour the food is really good and sufficient. With Uta you have a very pleasant guide who also conveys the cultural and informative aspects in a very interesting and relaxed manner. We had a really great evening with new knowledge and impressions of the ski jump and thank you again Uta, we had a lot of fun and joy with you :-)

We did the tour with 10 women and we were all very enthusiastic. Our guide Ulli was great! In advance, I would have liked much better communication from the office regarding various food intolerances. Here we could have taken a lot of unnecessary stress away from our very hard-working guide, the restaurants and me. In the end I couldn't eat 50% of it. A phone call could have easily remedied the matter.

The guide was pleasantly entertaining and gave us some lovely hours in the Schanzenviertel

Very good 👍🏻 Freya from Hamburg does a great job 👍🏻 very informative. Thank you
