STORIES FROM A CITY
ISSUE #4 HAMBURG

The fourth issue of Out Here took us to Germany’s second largest city, Hamburg. Unlike Germany’s more infamous capital city, Berlin, Hamburg has less of a reputation for the creative, subversive, and eccentric but once we had a chance to really explore the city, we soon discovered it has just as much to offer. From an urban beekeeper to the smallest, most well organised junk shop we’ve ever encountered, we found Hamburg was brimming with interesting individuals and businesses who set themselves apart from the crowd.
