Full description

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.

Wir waren nur eine kleine Gruppe, was sehr angenehm war. Jane erklärte mit viel Charme. Einziger Wermutstropfen war, dass es keine regionale/nordischen Spezialitäten waren, sondern frz, portugiesischen, italienischen, indischen und asiatische Spezialitäten. Es war dennoch lecker und eine schöne kurzweilige Tour.

Hervorragende Tour mz Britta! Eine tolle Führung durch den einzigartigen MultiKulti Statdtteil Schanze bzw. das Schanzenviertel. Es wurde viel erzählt über den Ursprung der Schanze, beginnend mit der Sternenschanze. Die ausgewählten Restaurants waren einmal um den Globus, Hamburg, Frankreich, Vietnam, Pakistan & Türkei. Da hätte man noch mehr essen können. Eine tolle Tour mit Britta, eine äußerst charmante Person sowie gebildeter und wortgewandter Guide.

It was a fantastic day with a lovely selection of tasty food. We were a group of four and we would all reccomend this trip. Although we all live in Hamburg, we learnt lots of very interesting details about the Schanze. Thank you Kevin for a very interesting and funny day.
