Explore Hamburg with FarhotFarhot
Hamburg is one of the most progressive cities in the world, mixing old root culture along with modern day architecture, as well as welcoming people from all walks of life into their city. Since the middle ages Hamburg has been one of the main hubs for trading within Europe, due to the location and port. It blends vibrant nightlife with scenic bike rides seamlessly. True to its Central European locale, Hamburg’s climate remains fairly moderate throughout the year. Its summers offer warm days and long stretches of daylight in the evenings, while the sun can set after less than eight hours each winter.
Wiring together sampled Afghani documentaries, string orchestrations and tabla drums with key inputs from UK and German rappers like JuJu Rogers, Tiggs Da Author and Nneka, Farhot has made a body of work that amplifies his wide ranging immersion in hip hop culture and his traditional Afghan heritage.

“Guess there’s always a rich and a rotten side in the area around any train station. Well, at least in Germany. This one’s defo not the posh side – sex shops, backyard mosques, junkies, pawnbrokers, and you won’t spot too many blonde folks around here. But you can find lots of great Middle Eastern food joints like Akdeniz Tantuni.”More Info
“Doner Kebab might be the most popular Turkish food in Germany but to me, Tantuni, which is also a type of kebab, is defo in a yumminess league above. If you love kebab, try this!”More Info
“Feels and tastes like home. This restaurant is named after the Hindu Kush mountain range that stretches through Afghanistan, so if my mom doesn’t have time to cook up something delish on a Sunday, this is where I get great Afghan cuisine.”More Info
“I just love Vietnamese street food! Lately many places that offer pho and such have been popping up around town but to me this is definitely the best place to enjoy Vietnamese cuisine in Hamburg. Normally, you’d find me at their branch close to the main train station.”More Info
“Good movies are a blessing and one of my main sources of inspiration. I’ve watched countless great movies at this art-house cinema right in the heart of the university district. Hope they’ll be able to open up soon because I miss that big screen feeling.”More Info
“Want to get away from the city and just enjoy some peace in nature? Then just grab a bike and cycle along the Dove Elbe, which is the rough, untouched lower part of the Elbe River. Ok, I really think I’m getting old.”More Info
“Hamburg has always been big on trade and is home to the world’s biggest warehouse district. Here, you can see how goods are delivered and maybe get a discount on oriental rugs if you buy them directly from wholesalers like my dad. The classic architecture of the warehouses is a great contrast to the ultramodern Hafencity buildings.”More Info
“Greasy! That’s what this little Korean food joint is. Doesn’t really look inviting at all but the food is damn delicious. If you love deep fried food chicken as much as I do, then this is the place to go. Oh yeah, and make sure to check out our KABUL FIRE “DEEP FRIED” PLAYLIST for some extra crispy beats!”More Info
