Portuguese Quarter

After strolling down the Landungsbrücken quay and a doing the harbour tour, many visitors to Hamburg simply hop on the metro to get back to the earnest business of shopping. Just behind the harbour however lies a charming small neighbourhood that is typical of Hamburg, yet completely unique at the same time. The centre of Hamburg's sizeable Portuguese and southern European community since the 1960s, the Portugiesenviertel  consists of just a handful of streets around the Ditmar-Koel-Straße in the Neustadt district that are home to over a dozen Portuguese restaurants, bars and pastelarias. It's the best place in Hamburg – some say in Northern Europe – to sample authentic tapas, delicious fresh seafood dishes and tasty Portuguese wines.
