New Hamburg Spots!

After Hamburg was the G20 spot last week and everyday in the media, it’s time to calm down a bit in the city. Since I realized that many of my old Hamburg recommendations are not existing anymore (I promise to update those posts soon), it’s time to share with you some new favorite Hamburg spots of mine. Here they are…

Restaurants (Book a table in all of these, if you plan to eat there!):

Brüdigams… My all-time favorite in Hamburg! Classic cuisine with a modern twist. Always delicious!

Ti Breizh… Breton! Incredible tasty galettes and crepes!

Zum Spätzle… Cute little space that serves Swabian dishes.

Kleine Brunnenstraße 1… Little restaurant that’s perfect for special occasions (e.g. Valentine’s Day, Birthday dinners,…).

Bars

Vineyard… Perfect for having a glass of wine with good friends on the end of a stressful week.

Le Lion… The most sophisticated bar in Hamburg.

Coffee

Less Political… Located in the Sternschanze, this place is always crowded with young and hip people.

Black Delight… Small place that makes delicious coffee.

Ice-Cream

Luicella’s… An incredible variety of flavors!

Eisliebe… Always a good reason for a bike tour to Ottensen.

Eisprinzessinnen… Again: An incredible variety of flavors!

I wish you a wonderful July week! Enjoy the warm days :)!

“Hand-made Fairtrade Accessories from Original Source!” FOLKDAYS principle

This eco shop love is a new find of mine: FOLKDAYS! The Berlin based fair fashion label tries to find original sources of high quality materials and handcrafts with an authentic story. They develop equal and lasting partnerships with their craftspeople with the aim to keep the traditions of their work alive. The shop offers a pretty selection of accessories, but one also gets to know the stories behind the products – how they were made, by whom and where. Moreover, their scarves and bags are simply beautiful :)!
