On the go with Alex Schulz and Norman Röhlig

Alex Schulz was inspired to start the Reeperbahn Festival in 2006 after visiting the famous South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas. The Reeperbahn Festival quickly developed into an event that extended far beyond being simply a music festival. Today, visitors are treated to an abundant music and art programme as well as one of the most important sector platforms for the international music and digital branches. Lasting four days, the festival has over 600 different offerings at 70 different locations in the Kiez. Alex gives us an exclusive introduction to his "Hamburg Favourites".

From niche-blog to leading cultural platform. Norman's motto on i-ref is "Everything is Interesting". With this premise, he reports constantly about travel, culture and personal subjects with never-ending curiosity.

Hamburg like a local On the go with Julia Wulf

Model Julia Wulf and blogger Janina Pfau are not only connected through their passion for fashion, but above all by their love of Hamburg. Between Eimsbüttel, the trendy Schanzenviertel, the cosy Marktstraße and the relaxing Planten un Blomen, you can see Hamburg like both of them know and love it: as a true metropolitan idyll.
