Schanzenviertel

Today Katharina and I went for a stroll through the Schanzenviertel, one of the last remains of left-wing culture in Hamburg. The quarter is full of graffiti, tourists, punks and hipsters, a strange but not wholly amusing mixture, at least to me. We took a look at some graffiti and wondered whether this is a place to live, considering that for many people it’s the place-to-be, it was a no for both of us. The place is just too run-down.

Still the graffiti is rather good:

Kiss me! I’m psychadelic.

There is a playground next to the old bunker, so I took the Atomium shot that others go to Brussels for :D.

The Atomium plaything.

These people were mending the abandoned(?) skateboard park. No skaters around.

The following portrait is of »Pflanzpirat«, an artists who helps people with their guerrila-gardening projects.

The streets are rather deserted on a cold Sunday afternoon. That doesn’t make it a comfort-zone.

Here’s a left-over from someone’s last-night supper.

Gentrification meets left-wing culture.

Che!

A lot of things in Hamburg exist in contrast to Berlin – and for no other reason than that.
