Bunker at Feldstrasse War memorial and creative music hotspot

Live clubs, concert venues, rehearsal rooms and urban gardening: the giant concrete block on Heiligengeistfeld, also known as the Media Bunker, breathes history and is shaping Hamburg’s cultural cityscape.

With a height of 40 metres, the grey flak tower at Feldstrasse can hardly be overlooked. Built during the Second World War as an air-raid shelter, the indestructible building today fits into Hamburg’s cityscape in a variety of ways. This is where, after the war, the Axel-Springer publishing house opened its first editorial office, and in the following years, more and more creative minds from various sectors followed suit, thus shaping the building’s future in a new way. Today, the rooftop terrace hosts electro parties in summer – with a breathtaking view over the city. A few floors further below, clubs such as Uebel & Gefährlich and Terrace Hill organise colourful parties and live concerts behind the thick concrete walls. And at the Resonanzraum venue, the rehearsal room of Ensemble Resonanz, lovers of classical music can enjoy demanding compositions with an experimental twist. The building also accommodates Just Music, Hamburg’s largest shop for musical instruments and music supplies, which extends over two floors. The Hamburg School of Music also uses the premises for rehearsals and tuition.
The building has become known as the Media Bunker because it is home to a number of media companies and advertising agencies as well as the studios of a media school. In the near future, all of these tenants will be able to enjoy a thoroughly green setting: as part of the Hilldegarden project, Hamburg is currently creating the city’s very first natural landscaped rooftop park – right on top of the Media Bunker.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Sternschanze & Karoviertel

The two districts around Schanzenstraße and Schulterblatt are always in motion. Here, it is colourful and lively, and it has become much fancier in the last few years. Still, the district in the borough of Altona has preserved much of its rough, leftist-alternative nonconformism.
