Enter The Dragon

Enter The Dragon Hamburg
12.00 - 22.00 Binnenalster Lake

You may not realise it but Hamburg has a large and thriving Chinese population and every summer they show off with the International Dragon Boat Festival. Held on the Binnenalster Lake teams of dragon boats from all over the city will compete for the title. The teams take the races very seriously, practising all year.

Alongside the boat races, which are held in heats across the weekend, there is an infusion of Asian culture through the city with the “Enter The Dragon” festival. One of the big highlights is the great “after-race party” which kicks off right after the awards ceremonies on the Binnenalster.

Continuing the Chinese theme how about some great Chinese restaurants to have dinner? Just a few streets back from St Pauli Hafenstrasse is the Copper House on Davidstrasse. This buffet style restaurant caters for the hungry on a budget and is often busy so it may be a good idea to book a table. Also it’s not far away from the famous Reeperbahn if you fancy a night club later on.

Not far away on Spielbudenplatz is Man Wah. Here you can expect simple but tasteful décor and probably the best Chinese food you will get in Europe; they are particularly known for their dim sum.

A little closer to home and with a slightly more Asian flavour is Sala Thai on Brandsende. This hidden gem is on a side street just by the Hauptbahnhof Nord and it serves the most delicious and authentic Thai dishes. Be prepared to go native and take off your shoes as this is a must inside.

To see the dragon boat action head to the Jungfernstieg. It only takes about 15 minutes to walk there or just over 5 minutes on the S-Bahn from the Hauptbahnhof Nord, which is only around the corner from Generator Hamburg.
