Information for visitors to Hamburg

In the popular Hamburg district of Pöseldorf you will find a diverse mix of gastronomy, shops and culture in the immediate vicinity of the Alster.

Nowhere else  in Hamburg is there as diverse a mix of large, white villas, narrow streets, former coach-houses, idyllic courtyards, galleries, coffee shops, trendy restaurants, hotels and a large number of owner-managed businesses - and in less than 5 minutes you can be relaxing by the Alster!

"The village" has history: The legendary Pub "Uncle Pö" had his roots here and later its (jazz) life began to flourish: Udo Lindenberg, Inga Rumpf and Otto Waalkes took to the stage here as also have Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea, Al Jarreau and Helen Schneider.

Today, high-class antiques and jewellery shops are present in addition to sophisticated fashion boutiques, beauty and gastronomic havens as well as top hairdressers pamper customers - and interior design studios show new home design ideas. Located right in the middle: the University of Music and Theatre in Bugde Palace, the Youth Music School on Mittelweg and the famous Church of St. John on Turmweg.

The special flair has inspired the world-renowned fashion designers Jil Sander and Wolfgang Joop: they started their stunning international careers in Pöseldorf, and even today Milchstrasse is a magnet for the fashion and lifestyle conscious.

But Pöseldorf would not be the vibrant bustling district it is if only the rich and famous felt at home here: Everyone - whether visitors, residents or students - will easily find their favourite places.
