Beach Bar

“Right on the river, this is a local favourite especially in Summer. Hang out, grab a beer or some food and watch the huge container ships cruise into port.”

“This is a great area to get a drink in a bar (Katze, Sofa Bar, Goldfischglas). It is always a bit crowded but you meet a lot of people and it just has a nice flair around it”

Hotel Bar

“Very nice spot to have a cocktail while enjoying the view over the harbour from the 20th floor. Normally growded on the weekend, thus a reservation is necessary most of the times. ”

“It’s about a 20 Minute nice walk to the Alster (the big lake in the middle of Hamburg) and the Alsterperle. In winter, you should have a Glühwein or a “Lumumba” (Hot Chocolate with Rum) here and just watch the lake. It’s calm and cosy and they have warm blankets. ”

“10 min walk: The first thing one notices about Knuth, even before walking in, is that the restaurant’s atmosphere seems to ooze out through the windows and light up the whole street with lively chatter and happy customers. After walking in, it is clear that this is a neighbourhood favourite where locals come to read one of the many magazines and newspapers that are offered while enjoying a hearty cake with coffee served in a huge bowl. Another great thing about Knuth is that the kitchen stays open during the day, and the selection of daily plates always pleases due to their variety.”
