What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in exploring Hamburg and its districts. Everybody knows about Hafen City, Reeperbahn or Schanzenviertel, but what about other districts that shape the face of Hamburg and offer unique insights into urban history, secret places or personal stories. You are an expert on the district you live in! Imagine themed trips about urban art, architectural history, nightlife or your own favourite places. Join in or even create your own trip for the community, start exploring and become an Urbanaut!

Urbanauts on the loose - Utopian Picnic Edition

Exit south at Café Lecker next to the bus stops

Dear Urbanauts, Please join us for the 7th event of our “U-Topian Picnic” district discovery series. Wonderful places exist around the world and in this city. Some of them are well-known, while others are hidden, lost, abandoned, anonymous, difficult to reach or simply not perceptible in their spatial beauty and potential. Utopia comes from the Greek OU ‘not’ + TOPOS ‘place’: non-lieu, non-place, Nicht-Ort, Unort. What's the difference between a place and a non-place? What makes a space a beautiful place? Can we temporarily bring a non-place to life? Let’s try! Let’s transform some of these non-places into something new by being there, eating and drinking, talking and adding a new perspective by opening our senses towards it. Let’s fill them with life. This time we will start the experiment near the port; again one of those abandoned, strange but charming urban places, hidden but very central and easy to reach. Bring something to eat, to drink, blankets and anything else that comes to mind. Let’s talk, laugh, enjoy, discuss, share; we will explore and make the space our own for an evening. After sundown we will watch a film. Please, just be aware that it is not a registered event, but a picnic among 'friends' in a public place. ___German version___ Wunderbare Orte existieren auf dieser Welt, in dieser Stadt. Manche waren noch vor wenigen Jahren Unorte; heute kann man dort verweilen, geniessen; glückliche Gesichter sagen: ein schöner Ort. Utopia übrigens kommt vom griechischen OU ‘nicht’ + TOPOS ‘Ort’: der Nicht-Ort, Unort. Was macht den Unterschied, was macht aus einem Unort einen schönen Ort? Was müssen wir an einem Unort hinzufügen um ihn mit Leben zu füllen? Wollen wir ein Experiment wagen? Wollen wir einen Unort hören, sehen, fühlen? Wir können uns ergänzen: Leben. Wir können den Genuss ergänzen: lasst uns essen, trinken. Vielleicht können wir Klänge hinzufügen, Texte, Bilder, Filme? Wir können uns ergänzen: reden. Können wir temporär einen Unort lebendig werden lassen? Können wir den Unterschied ausmachen? Lasst es uns wagen. Lasst uns dieses Mal wieder die Nähe zum Hafen suchen; wieder einer dieser eigenartigen, verlassenen, versteckten Orte, fern und mittendrin und leicht zu erreichen. Bringt etwas zu Essen mit, zu Trinken, auf jeden Fall Decken und alles was Ihr sonst noch wollt. Wir werden dort sein, picknicken, sehen, was wir dem Ort geben können, was er uns geben kann, reden, lachen, geniessen, diskutieren. Nach Sonnenuntergang werden wir einen Film sehen. Lasst uns sehen, was entsteht. Von wegen Wein: bitte seid für Euch selbst verantwortlich. Es ist keine angemeldete Veranstaltung, wir wollen ein Picknick unter 'Freunden' an einem öffentlichen Ort machen. p.s.: After every tour you might want to give a small tip, so we can cover our expenses such as literature to prepare a tour, equipment for a popupkino, material to be creative in an urban art crawl or alike. !!! 50% of the tip goes to a social project situated in Wilhelmsburg, the Kinderbauernhof Kirchdorf !!! --> http://kibaho.com (Nobody is forced to give, but sharing is caring and will give this meetup-group more options to have great tours around Hamburg as well as do good for an outstanding social project, thanks so much!) Cheers, Alice, Joe, Lars.
