Neighborhood: Schanzenviertel
Overview

Today's Sternschanzenpark can be found where in 1682 a star-shaped bastion was erected to secure Hamburg´s fortifications even further. It forms the center of the Schanzenviertel, a neighborhood which is particularly popular with young people. Frequent public debates about drug dealers and the presence of the police in the park make people forget what this place actually means for the district. It is a recreational area and a meeting-point, and in summer many cultural events like the Zelttheater and the open-air cinema take place here. The water tower, the "landmark" of the neighborhood, was built in 1907-1910. It has watched people discuss its future for a long time already and they can´t seem to agree on something. The plan to turn it into a luxury hotel failed, as the Schanzenviertel the local people are strictly against commercialization of their neighborhood.
