One of my favourite pastime activities in Hamburg has to be clubbing. The techno scene in Germany in general is really awesome, however the parties in Hamburg are something special to me. Everyone knows German techno and cities that host the biggest and the baddest parties. These include Berlin, Berlin and Berlin. Oh did I mention Munich? Yeah but anyway. You get my point. We are overshadowed by our great neighbour and it’s something I am happy about.

Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Berlin. But I think that we should give an opportunity to other cities as well. Here, the scene is very underground and unknown. That’s why it’s so great I guess. No one would ever except such a scene to be here. Also most of the DJs are totally unknown, but I don’t listen to DJs.. I don’t listen to artist either. I listen to good music at night, pumping techno oh yeah please.

This is what my city has to offer. And if there is one thing I am proud of. It is exactly that!

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to go out and do some clubbing in Hamburg.

Cheers,

Tobias

I once overheard a conversation at a restaurant table in Hamburg, Germany. There was a group of locals on one table and a foreign traveler on the other. They were having a discussion about Hamburg and one of the locals suggested: ‘Do you know what’s the best thing about Hamburg?” to which the foreigner responded.. “Actually, I have no idea. I don’t know much about this city”. The locals laughed and said: “It is because there are so little Germans here”.

Being german myself, I found this very amusing. Obviously these locals were immigrants, and not truly German. But even though I am one myself, I can really relate to this discussion. I always kind of felt alienated in my home country, and felt attracted to the opposite nations.

In fact, it’s what has kept me sane all these years in the little neighbourhoods of Hamburg. Because there are very many immigrants which creates a huge diversity among the people. Delicious food, exiting parties and many other things you can find from my city. If it would be some boring all-german city or town, I wouldn’t survive there for very long!!

But it’s not enough. I do cross the border regularly and enjoy the world, the mix. Life is beautiful that way!

This was my little introduction to all the exiting stuff that’s going to come to my web site. Enjoy friends!
