Hamburg: Schanzenviertel Culinary Tour

1. Hamburg: Schanzenviertel Culinary Tour

Experience a culinary tour of Hamburg's Shanzenviertel. Characterized by the wide variety of cafes and bars, the district will delight you with endless culinary options. 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!

Sunday evening was a nice small group of 6 perosns. Tour was very relaxing with great selection of restaurants and amazing selected food. The best part -we would not went to such places by ourselves, selected food was very good so the tour really gave what was promised. Our tour guide- Isabel was amazing, in addition to fine food we got some historical facts, local insights and some local funny stories. We had really a great time! Would recommend to everyone.

We had booked the tour out of curiosity - culinary specialties. We had expected Hamburg specialties, but were not disappointed that they were international specialties. Although we were informed at short notice that our guide was ill, the lady from Get your Guide got a replacement guide who only took the tour with us 2 people. An extra thumbs up for that!

The tour is definitely recommendable. The dishes are very diverse in culinary terms and were largely unknown to us, which made us happy. Guide Tom was able to illustrate the various locations with numerous well-chosen background information. It was a good mix of sights, food and an interesting story.

Very cool. Tried things that I haven't eaten and probably wouldn't have tried in real. Mix of info and food was perfect

We really enjoyed the tour through the Schanzenviertel! Out guide was friendly and had some great stories to tell!
