I’m super enthusiastic about Hamburg. Why, you ask? The city has so much to offer that you’d be surprised how many days you can spend here. And of course you need to spend some time shopping. I’ll give you the ins and outs about the shops you really can’t miss!
As I wrote before Schanzenviertel is the coolest area in Hamburg. It reminded me a little bit of a smaller, cosy Kreuzberg with cute boutiques, nice coffeebars and so forth. During our stroll I came across a lot of nice stores that are definitely worth a visit. Enjoy this first Blackbirds & Blossom shoptour!
We start at S-bahn Sternschanze, easy reachable from Hamburg Hauptbahnhof with the S31.
When you walk out of the station, go under the tracks and strait towards Schanzenviertel. You pass the cute Lille/Stor, a small shop at Schanzenstraße 97.
Next you enter the Susannenstraße, at nr 20 is the messy all-you-can-think-of-store Das Dorf. It’s the perfect place to find a good gift or something for your home.
Continue walking on the Susannenstraße and go right at the 2nd street, towards Rosenhofstraße. Nr five hosts Mono Conceptstore, a hip clothing store with great brands as Nudie Jeans, Scotch & Soda, Herschel and more.
Go via Schulterblatt back to the Susannenstraße. You’ll see an establishment of Kauf Dich Glucklich, a secondhand clothing / vintage store you can find in more German cities.
Back in Susannenstraße you go right to Bartelstraße. Conceptstore Minimarkt is located on nr 37 and you’ll fall in love with everything you see!
Time for a small walk until you reach Sternstraße 4, there you’ll find the bookstore cohen+dobernigg and in the adjacent shopping centre you can find a flea market each Saturday.
Walk through the shopping center via the Feldstraße towards the Marktstraße. This is really heaven for everyone that loves cute boutiques, small stores and quirky shops. Walk through the Markstraße until you reach the Feldstraße again. Cross the road and walk from the Neue Pferdemarkt to the Wohlwillstraße. There you’ll find coffee bar Caffé Latté, great place for a piece of pie and a coffee!
After your coffee break you walk further and turn a right into the Paul-Roosen-Straße. At nr 5 you can find the amazing Kunst Kiosk.
From there you can easily and quickly walk to the Reeperbahn. The Reeperbahn itself isn’t really a good tip for an end of the day-drink but when in Hamburg, right? This street is so strange and crazy that you have no idea what’s happening when you reach it. Just go there to have seen it and turn into some of the cuter bystreets to find a cafe or bar for a drink to end your shopping afternoon.
