This motivates us to give a great tour every single time and gives an opportunity for those that can not normally afford a tour to experience the best that the city has to offer. <br><br>Witness the rise and fall of Hamburg throughout its history: its glorious past as a centre of the Hanseatic League and its heavy destruction in the Great Fire and the World War 2.<br>Please note: groups of 9 or more must book a private tour and will NOT be admitted onto the tour! In such a case no refund will be rewarded.

The Schanzenviertel is a good location for shopping, since there are a variety of different fashion and designer shops. The shops offer a variety of fashion, interior design, art and craft designs. Besides the products there are a lot of restaurants and cafes, which offer dishes around the world. The street art and some Graffitis in quarter is amazing.

What do you expect from the Schanzenviertel? Do you want to go to a zoo and experience the real inhabitants? Or will the sometimes quite hip rang of shops and restaurants be enough? I can put myself in the shoes of the residents and their worries. I can understand very well the issues that the left-wing autonomists are dealing with there. The tourists are only interested in the colourful sprayed houses, the hip shops and maybe fancy restaurants. Yes, I like them too, but I feel uncomfortable here because I don't want to look into the cage of the residents like in a zoo.

I have lived in Sternschanze for 25 years. It used to be a great area to live in. The mixture of students, artists and local families, who had been here for generations, felt healthy, harmonious and vibrant. However, in the last ten years or so, it has turned into a vacuous 24-hour party poser strip, with pseudo-trendy fashion outlets and swathes of gawking tourists. At the weekend, at the latest, hoards of drunken privileged-white-youths from the the suburbs escape to the quarter to let off steam, screaming declarations of love for their mates, football team or favourite pop star while urinating in the doorways of local shops and houses. Taking the dog for a walk is almost impossible because Schulterblatt is carpeted with a layer of broken glass and vomit most nights. Imbecilic provincial hen-night tourists teeter up and down the road, squealing like fancy-dressed piglets on their way to the slaughter house, while boy racers rev their souped-up engines in an attempt to stimulate the clitori of the cerebly-challenged with an intoxicating cocktail of ear-splitting noise, burnt rubber and petrol Fumes. If you look carefully, you can still find a resident or two trying to battle their way through the blissfully self-absorbed hipster blocks and semi-circular guided-tour groups to the local supermarket. Have fun!
