Hamburg Map Tourist Attractions
Seafood abounds in Hamburg, as you’d expect in a port city. The most interesting part of town from a culinary standpoint is Sternschanze, where Turkish fruit and falafel stands and avant-garde cafes entice hungry passersby with good food and great atmosphere. Schulterblatt, SusannenstraBe, and SchanzenstraBe have funky cafes and restaurants, while slightly cheaper establishments abound in the university area, especially along RentzelstraBe, Grindelhof, and Grindelallee. In Altona, the pedestrian zone leading up to the train station is packed with ethnic food stands and produce shops. The Portuguese community lends its own take on seafood in the area between the Michaelskirche and the river. 13 La Sepia, Schulterblatt 36, is a fine Portuguese restaurant with the city’s best and most reasonably priced seafood.
