At one time, the "Schanze" - as Hamburg locals call the area between Eimsbüttel, Grindelviertel, the old Wallanlage and St. Pauli - was influenced through and through by the alternative subcultures of the 1970s and '80s. In the last 20 years, however, the Schanze as well as its smaller neighbour, the Karolinenviertel, have experienced something of a renaissance. Today, the area is like Hamburg's second Kiez, with cafés, bars, a pub culture and chic boutiques. But the alternative past is not forgotten - some artists and initiatives remain to the present day and have opened shops and restaurants dedicated to keeping an ecological and sustainable lifestyle alive. On this tour you will discover the sustainable highlights in Sternschanze and Karoviertel. How about a delicious vegan breakfast with pancakes at Mamalicious, a game of volleyball at Karo Beach, Germany's first zero waste beach club, or trendy streetwear, which is weighed and sold by the kilo at PICKNWEIGHT? Relax and enjoy the nature at Planten un Blomen after your long shopping tour.
