“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.”

“You should at least have a look and go there for a snack. People who work there are very much representing original people from Hamburg. A bit loud, not too friendly on the first view, but with a big heart.”

Nightclub

“What can you tell about the Pudel? It's the birth place of so many dj*anes. It's the cradle of Hamburg's counterculture. Punk meets Avantgarde meets Lo-Fi meets electronical masterclass. It's still the place to be in long summer nights. Every night (except Tuesdays). Thursdays are great. Watch out for Smallville events!”

German Restaurant

“Amazing, cozy, romantic and unique place at beautiful sit outside or inside spot in a just local almost non touristic street. YOU HAVE TO go there Perfect to have a glass of wine and hours of talks. Neither cheap nor expensive. Perfect to combine with a drink at "clockers" since it's next door (see below)”

“Easy going bar for beer and shots, it´s not very touristy. This area is already St. Pauli and in spring and summertime its always busy around there. There´s a lot of bars and kiosks here so people come here to hang out in the streets as well.”

“Best burgers in Hamburg! Get the Stingy Gonzales (it's with guacamole) and maybe instead of the normal fries that come with it, ask if they have chili cheese fries and then have a nice slice of new york cheesecake for dessert. For digestion, ask for a pickleback. And if you see Ulli, Hester or Tim, say Kris says hi.”

“An old walk-down corner pub converted into one of St. Pauli's hipster hotspots. No worries though, the place is kind of immune to artsy-fartsy wannabes (i.e. the drinks are really lousy). Smoking permitted, stay with the shots!”

“Good place to start with some drinks. Especially in summer the little garden in front is nice.”
