On the go with Stephan Garbe and Matze Hielscher

"Saudade distilled in Hamburg" - this is how the label reads on the typical white ceramic bottles in which Stephan Garbe fills the gin he distills himself in Hamburg. "Saudade" is an old Portuguese term that be translated as something resembling "gentle melancholy". In Hamburg, however, this feeling can be understood probably like nowhere else in the world. On our video tour, Stephan shows us his favourits spots near one of Germany's smallest distilleries.

In 2010, Matze founded the digital city magazine in his kitchen. Today, he and his team produce "Mit Vergnügen" - a worthwhile read about all kinds of pleasures in Berlin. It includes only what Matze would also recommend his friends.

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.
