Lots of special eateries and cool places. But also overcrowded, have been here multiple times and never found a seat somewhere in the evening. Take-away food during the day possibly though.

The Schanzenviertel is located close to the B-halls of the Hamburger fairground and is the place to stay when you work at a show over there and don't want to stay in a hotel. It's a true multi-kulfi neighbourhood with lots of bars and places...More

Just get out of Hamburg centre and port for a while. This area to the west has many bars and restaurants and is obviously much 'en vogue'. Artists, young people, trendy shops, and yes, beggars and drunks. All in all a pleasant atmosphere.

Very alternative area in Hamburg, easy to find and good nightlife. Would definitely recommend it to tourists who want to see another side of Hamburg. The Schanzenviertel is better than the Reeperbahn!

Cool bohemian part of town. With graffiti on the walls. More art than tags. Also loads of over priced hip clothing shops. There was a pretty good street band playing and people seemed friendly. Very bohemian but gentrifying very quickly. See it before this looses...More
