“This bar is located in the Empire Riverside Hotel down by the Elbe. It's extremely popular as you have the most fantastic view over the river and the city. Especially at night. Due to the popularity you are well advised to book in advance through their website. And dress up a bit.”

“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. ”

Gastropub

“This is a short walk away and a great place to sample craft beer. In summer you can sit outside in the courtyard. They also have a small menue with nice little dishes. This is a super start before walking across into the busy Schanzenviertel.”

“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.”
