There’s nothing quite like exploring a quirky neighborhood and making it your own, is there?

With one of our local Hamburg hosts by your side, your travel stories will go beyond the obvious and become personal.

“Remember that cool neighborhood we went to in Hamburg,” you’ll say, recalling this once working-class neighborhood turned trendy shopping hub. Follow your host as they show you its unique boutiques, quirky stores and cozy independent shops. 

Visit the Zeisehallen, a disused ship propeller factory turned arthouse cinema, and the music venue Die Fabrik, which used to be an ammunition depot before becoming a concert hall.

Food is never off the menu (see what we did there), so don’t hesitate to stop off for a bite to eat, or pop into one of the local bars. When you say Ottensen, we think browsing flea markets, visit galleries and a diverse cultural bonanza!

    • Join a host and explore the Ottensen neighborhood, Hamburg’s second-biggest shopping area (one which has remained off the tourist trail)
    • Browse independent shops, quirky boutiques and flea markets - no chain stores here!
    • Discover unique venues like an old ammunition factory turned music venue or a factory which is now an arthouse cinema
    • Enjoy the area’s vibrant restaurant and bar culture as you stop for a drink and bite to eat along the way
    • Get tips from your host on more unique places to visit in this neighborhood and beyond, so you can continue to explore Hamburg like a local
