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.

There were samples from different countries in different places. Vanilla cakes from Portugal. Bruschetta from Italy. Summer roll (similar to spring roll) from Vietnam. Petit Pain "Monsieur Croc" from France and "filled lentil hats" from Pakistan. There were optional drinks specials. In addition, we were extensively informed about the "recent history" of the Schanzenviertel and its surroundings.

Emilia did a great job, the weather was great too. The first course (samosas) was delicious, followed by Portuguese natas (tarts). They tasted good, but were very filling and didn't really fit that well in between (after that there was bruscetta and croque), at the end they would have been better. Unfortunately, my son and I didn't like the last snack (summer rolls) at all, everything else was good.

On this tour we got to know the Schanzenviertel in its scenic and multicultural diversity. Our guide Patricia "fed" us very well with a lot of interesting information worth knowing. Speaking of “fed”: The culinary delicacies and the corresponding locations were excellently selected. The peculiarity and the individuality of the hill could not have been better portrayed. And ….. we also got fed up. A recommended tour that whets the appetite for more.
