CITY AREA PORTRAIT Welcome to Schanzenviertel & Karoviertel!

The two quarters around Schanzenstraße and Schulterblatt are always in motion. It's colorful, it's wafting and in the last few years it's become more chic around the Piazza. And yet the district has retained much of its rough, left-alternative non-conformity. Especially in the Marktstraße in the Karoviertel there are a lot of special shops beyond the mainstream. Stroll past recommended!

MAGAZIN One day at Sternschanze & Karoviertel

Moin, my name is Petra

I have been living in the "Schanze" for 20 years now. My neighbourhood around Schanzenstraße and Schulterblatt keeps growing and growing. New shops and restaurants, cafés, bars and boutiques keep opening at a fast pace. It is colourful and lively, and it has become much fancier. Still, the district in the borough of Altona has preserved much of its rough, leftist-alternative nonconformism. The Marktstraße in the Karoviertel is filled with stores beyond the mainstream scene. Wherever you look, you can find a relaxed place where you can passively watch the hustle and bustle.
I would like to invite you to discover my favourite neighbourhood with me. I’ll show you some great places and give you some valuable insider tips.

IN THE MORNING

The best flat white in town

Living in Schanzenviertel, all my husband and I need to do in order to start our stroll is to fall out of bed. Early in the morning, this coffee-loving neighbourhood likes to meet at Codos (Bartelsstraße 26), a tiny coffee bar known for the best flat white in the whole neighbourhood. We also enjoy marvellous, buttery croissants fresh from the oven. Then, we stroll towards Neuer Kamp, where every Saturday you can find a great flea market in a former slaughterhouse (Flohschanze) around the U-Bahn station Feldstraße. On the way, we run into one of the guided culinary tours. The program for sure includes snack bar Schorsch, one of the oldest sausage stalls in the area (Beim Grünen Jäger 14) and Das Alte Mädchen (Lagerstraße 28b), a brewery visitor tourswith a great craft beer selection, which also offers guided tours.

AT NOON

Art and Schanzen truffle

If you feel hungry, you can always find tasty snacks at Azeitona (Beckstraße 17). My favourite dish is hummus with grilled vegetables. Keep walking through the Schlachthofpassage, where Schanzenviertel turns into Karoviertel. It is pretty much the borough’s smaller sister, very alternative and with plenty of shops that present hip and elegant fashion. Herr von Eden (Marktstraße 33), for instance, offers extravagant suits. Pretty understandable that besides visitors from the nearby Hamburg trade fair, hipsters from all over Europe find their way to Marktstraße. Art lovers should not miss the sculptures and pictures in Atelier Schlumper (Neuer Kamp 30). It works closely with an association that funds people with disabilities and their artwork. On the way back, we grab coffee at Hermetic Coffee Roasters on Sternstraße 68 (try the cheesecake with raspberry sauce!). But not all stores around here are chic and hip. You will also find great traditional restaurants, such as Erikas Eck (Sternstraße 98) or shops like Stüdemanns (Schulterblatt 59), which offers a great selection of tea, coffee and chocolate specialities. Try the Schanzen truffle!

IN THE EVENING

Bar-hopping at Schulterblatt

The area around Schulterblatt, Susannenstraße and Schanzenstraße never really sleeps. If you feel like strolling through a few shops, you should by no means miss Minimarkt (Bartelsstraße 37). Here, you can find gorgeous kitchen accessories, small furniture, glass, ceramics and unusual frills. Nearby, Scarpovino (Susannenstraße 29) unites two shops that sell shoes and wine. Not far from Susannenstraße, Beyond Beer Hamburg (Weidenallee 55) offers a great selection of beers from around the world. Personally, we love having a special Pale Ale from California before we meet our friends to have dinner at Jellyfish (Weidenallee 12). Here, the owners go the extra mile to serve you fresh fish from sustainable catch. On the way home, we walk down Schulterblatt by the infamous Rote Flora, the centre of Hamburg's Schanzenviertel. Starting at 10 pm, party folks gather around the long piazza. It is the ideal starting point for a pub tour through Hamburg’s trendy district...

Why only top-of-the-line when the “B-Lage”, or second-tier, is also great? The permanent pop-up store in the Schanzenviertel is now highly popular even outside of Hamburg’s creative scene.

There is much to do around the Alster, one of the must-sees in our beautiful harbour city – Gründerzeit quarters and exclusive residential areas delight fans of architecture, joggers and cyclists. Many individual shops, cafés and restaurants invite visitors to linger. For a workout, for relaxation or just to take a stroll – the Alster is always a pleasant experience!
