EMMA6
Mit ihrem vierten Album, mit "Alles Teil des Plans“ hat das Trio aus der Nähe von Köln Inventur betrieben – und bietet auch für die Hörer*innen den Soundtrack zu einer intensiven Auseinandersetzung mit sich selbst auf. Sehnsuchtsvoller Indie-Pop und Katharsis. Doppelten Boden gibt’s woanders, hier geht’s um alles, Leute. "Ich liebe es, wenn ein Plan funktioniert“, das war einst die Catchphrase des „A-Teams“, einem ziemlich unsubtilen Ensemble.

Area Guide of Things to do

outdoors
Stadtpark

Germans love their Stadtparks – and rightfully so. Besides being particularly pretty and spacious, the one in Hamburg also has a fairly unique feature that is always worth checking out: a planetarium.

landmark
Altonaer Balkon

“Altona’s balcony” is exactly what it sounds like: a green space to relax on, located high above the Elbe. Although this particular balcony will have to be shared with some neighbours, the view definitely beats the one at home.

Altonaer Balkon, Palmaille, 22767 Hamburg, Germany
outdoors
Dove Elbe

Ride the perfectly smooth bicycle path east until you arrive at Dove Elbe, grab yourself a beer and pretend to be on vacation for one glorious day. Make sure to bring your swimsuit to complete the illusion!

Landesleistungszentrum Hamburg, Landesleistungszentrum Rudern, Allermöher Deich, 21037 Hamburg, Germany
venue
Molotow

It’s no mystery why people who love indie-rock love Molotow. It’s slightly more mysterious why everyone in Molotow seems to love everyone else in Molotow. If you feel lonely, this is where you’ll quickly find a friend for life.

Nobistor 14, 22767 Hamburg, Germany
venue
MS Stubnitz

A ship, a club and a cultural venue. Biking out to the Baakenhöft and spending the night dancing and drinking on the Stubnitz might be one of the most quintessential Hamburg experiences you can have.

Kirchenpauerkai, 20457 Hamburg, Germany
theater
Kampnagel

At Kampnagel, you’ll find everything from performance art and theatre to concerts and exhibitions. No matter if you want to get inspired, educated or drunk – there’s something here for you.

Jarrestraße 20, 22303 Hamburg, Germany
venue
Mojo Club

Two massive hatches rise out of the ground to reveal the entrance – and it only gets more exciting from there. The legendary Mojo Club has reinvented itself at a new location that more than lives up to the name.

Reeperbahn 1, 20359 Hamburg, Germany
museum
The Affenfaust Gallery

This slightly crazy and completely brilliant gallery somehow manages to be approachable and inspirational at the same time. It even has a gift shop! It shouldn’t work, but it does.

Paul-Roosen-Straße 43, 22767 Hamburg, Germany
shopping
Groove City

Marga from Groove City Record Store is the queen of vinyl. Thankfully, she is very generous with her audiences.

Marktstraße 114, 20357 Hamburg, Germany
shopping
Music Market Hamburg

Whatever you need, Lennart and Rik got you covered. They help with everything from guitar strings to electric pianos and complicated relationships. That’s why people love them. And also why you are going to.

Königstraße 1 -3, 22767 Hamburg, Germany
shopping
Rückkopplung

This shop on Budapester Straße is the place to go if you are looking for vintage music equiptment. That one thing you have been looking for forever? The one that never comes up for auction? You just might find it here.

Budapester Str. 44, 20359 Hamburg, Germany
venue
Hanseplatte

Hanseplatte is an eccentric little shop that features a lot of home-town artists and labels. It’s a great spot to discover and support local talent.

Neuer Kamp 32, 20357 Hamburg, Germany
food
Ginst

Ginst on the corner of Paul-Roosen-Straße and Brunnenhof is first and foremost one thing: comfy. Order a drink, sink into one of the couches and just relax.

Paul-Roosen-Straße 28, 22767 Hamburg, Germany
bar
Toast Bar

Going to Toast Bar rarely actually means staying in Toast Bar. Whenever the weather permits it, you should get yourself a drink at the bar, sit down on the kerb outside and talk to whoever passes by on Wohlwillstraße.

Neuer Pferdemarkt, 20359 Hamburg, Germany
bar
Le Lion

Don’t be discouraged by the weird ritual of having to ring a bell to be let into Le Lion. It might feel snobby (and it is), but ultimately everyone is welcomed inside and served some of the best drinks in the city.

Rathausstraße 3, 20095 Hamburg, Germany
bar
Komet

When you first enter Komet, it looks like any of the other solid dive bars in St. Pauli. Go downstairs and you’ll find what makes it special: a little cellar that hosts some of the biggest young musicians in the country.

Erichstraße 11, 20359 Hamburg, Germany
food
Cox

Cox in St. Georg isn’t one of those trendy new restaurants that everyone wants to be seen at; it is one of those trendy old ones. If you want to enjoy a delicious dinner in a beautiful, timeless atmosphere, Cox is the place to go.

Lange Reihe 68, Greifswalder Str. 43, 20099 Hamburg, Germany
food
Tigre

Was it Leche de Tigre that popularized ceviche in Hamburg, or was it the other way around? Either way, you won’t find a better one anywhere in town. Adventurous guests pair it with chicha morada, a soft drink made from purple corn.

Nernstweg 32-34, 22765 Hamburg, Germany
bar
Carmagnole

If you don’t know what to order at Carmagnole, a cozy French bistro on Juliusstraße, trust their logo and get an artichoke. If they aren’t in season, ask for the mussels. If those are out, have anything else. It’s all amazing.

Juliusstraße 18, 22769 Hamburg, Germany
food
Krug

Krug on Paul-Roosen-Straße offers great food, drinks and advice on how to become the most famous band in the world. Just ask them about their history with the Beatles right after you’ve asked for your second bottle of wine.
