Food in Hamburg

Foodwise Hamburg is not much different from what you remember from last years. We have a big choice of Foodstyles, both German and international, covering all your demands.

There are several Hotspots for getting food. Especially the Grindel-Viertel around the Campus of Hamburg University and the Sternschanze. Another option is the Reeperbahn district, with a lot of food parlors that are open 24 hours every day.

If have some more useful information, please add it at this page.

Special Dietary Constraints

If you have special medical, ethical or religious rules or limitations we provide you with some Locations:

I've found Happy Cow to be a good place to find Vegetarian and Vegan restaurants.
The best Falafels around this area you get in the Falafelstern next to the station Sternschanze, which is one station by S-Bahn in the direction of Altona.
Also quiet good are the burritos at Jim Burrito - five minutes walk from S-Bahn Sternschanze.

Local Specialties

If you want some real Hamburgian specialties, you should definitely try "Labskaus" and "Aalsuppe" the pinnacle of Hamburgian Cuisine.


Loads of Restaurants and Bars are within walking distance of the Venue.

Basic Food & Drink

can be acquired in the Dammtor Station. (McDonald's, Pizza, Kebab, Bakery, Asia, Coffee), closing 10 or 11 pm.

A tip from a local are the "Dinkelseelen" oder "M├╝slistangen" from a little backery called "Effenberger" in the basement of Dammtorstation. You reach it from outside by walking between the bridge and the building.

Food overnight

There is a corner not far away where you can get food (mostly meat, but also some vegetarian) the whole night, it is around Sternstrasse, that is next to Schanzenstrasse (see below).


Opposite of the CCH (tunnel under the station, turn left,follow "Edmund-Siemers-Allee", then "Grindelallee") is the old Jewish Center of Hamburg, the "Grindel" Area with the University and Restaurants ranging from traditional German to Pakistani, italian, Vegan, Halal, Kosher and much more. Walking distance: ca. 1 kilometer)
