Go where the heart is!
Are you looking for the genuine, unique Hamburg? We asked well-known Hamburgers what they love about their city, and whether they would share their favourite places, experiences and stories with us. The result: our video series “Go where the heart is”.
`Hamburg has an urban character, but also offers various places for relaxation. You have the possibility to find peace and disconnect from the world. These are things that I really treasure’.
Model Julia Wulf and Blogger Janina Pfau do not only share a passion for fashion, but also their love for Hamburg. In between Eimbüttel, the trendy Schanzenviertel, the cosy Marktstraße and the peaceful Planten un Blomen Hamburg presents itself as an idyllic metropolis.
‘What do I like about Hamburg: You realize that it is a harbour city, because people always come and go.’
Actress Anna Bederke and Blogger Stefanie Luxat leave their comfort zone of Altona and Schanzenviertel to explore the surroundings of the central station and the cultural and culinary east side of Hamburg. Starting at the Deichtorhallen to Kampnagel, back to Café Paris, they made their way through the city on foot or various means of strange transportation. However, throughout their tour, Anna and Stefanie were they fascinated by the mixture of unusual and ordinary.
