Centrally situated between the "Schanzenviertel" and the City.
Youth and Culture - the district "Karoviertel"
Who comes to the Karoviertel in Hamburg and strolls around, in particular alongside the "Marktstraße", quickly realizes that this district defines itself by its youthfulness. The Marktstraße is dominated by the young people who live here - similar to the "Schanze" (more precisely, the "Schanzenviertel" - the name of the district which is located in direct neigbourhood). Anyway, the paths seem to be not too far here. Whoever wants to, can easily stroll from here to the Reeperbahn.
Art Nouveau in design and fashion
The youth-like appearance of the Marktstraße mainly bases upon the large number of "young" stores here. A lot of specially young fashion and young fashion design can be found here. From T-shirts and evening wear up to children's clothing and shoes and even jewelry or intimate tattoos. Oh yes - the tattoo studio in the Marktstraße has a special way, attained notoriety because it was the focus of the second and third season of a series about tattoo studios on DMAX. The name of the studio: Studio Jungbluth. But who thinks, however, to simply run in and get a tattoo there will be disappointed. The studio has never been the place for a quick decision. The demand is just too numerous for a "quickie".
Take the yellow line (U3) and get off at station "Feldstraße"

Who wants to come by car, can park his car for example at the fair, which is located in the neighborhood. Also in the "Glacischaussee" (lateral Heiligengeistfeld) you can park well - as long as the "Hamburger Dom" a huge folk festival - is not taking place at that time.
In the "Glashüttenstraße" around the corner, you can drink in the "Café Klatsch" a great coffee or have breakfast. At the beginning of the Marktstraß (or at the end - as you look at it) you can eat and drink well in the Karoeck. Before the door there is also a children's playground. Of interest to parents with children.
