Sights Schanzenhöfe

In Hamburg's hip 'Schanze' area, these restored industrial buildings now host a unique mix of gastronomy, art and innovation.​​​​​​​

Visit the brewery's craft beer store. The Ratsherren Brewery shop stocks over 300 brews from all over the world, including plenty of their own creations.

Schanzenhöfe Brewery District

Even though the area is located right next to the busy Sternschanze S-Bahn station, the atmosphere around Schanzenhöfe is pleasantly tranquil. If you're into craft beer, you'll find a little paradise here: Ratsherrn Brewery. Ratsherrn has been offering its own locally-brewed beer as well as 300 additional brews from all over the world since opening its doors in 2013. Several times a week you can do beer tastings and learn how Ratsherrn is produced.

If you're hungry, just head next door — inside the brewery's restaurant, Altes Mädchen (lit. 'Old Girl') you'll find high-quality organic food, over 60 varieties of beer to try, and freshly-baked bread made from the brewery's leftover mash.

Another eatery, Bullerei Deli & Restaurant, is just a few steps away and is run by German TV-chef Tim Mälzer. The Deli opens its doors every day at 11 a.m., and the restaurant opens at 6 p.m.

To regain your spirits after a day of shopping in Schanze, visit the Elbgold Café, where you can see how Arabica fair trade coffee beans are roasted. Or put together a colourful bouquet at Flora Press. This local favourite is much more than a flower shop and even has its own photo studio.

For Hamburg residents, it's worth mentioning that a musical kindergarten, a gallery and some innovative startups are also located in this area. More information can be found on the official website of Schanzenhöfe.
