New Orleans is a small city with a big reputation, known for its iconic music scene, delicious cuisine, and emblematic festivals such as Mardi Gras. When visiting, most travelers instinctually head to the French Quarter. While there’s plenty to explore there, it pays to broaden your horizons, as you can discover local restaurants, lively bars, cute boutiques, and historic buildings across the city.

The downtown neighborhoods are easy to navigate on foot, then you can take the atmospheric streetcar to Uptown. From beautiful architecture in the Garden District to the wafting jazz tunes of Tremé, here are the most interesting neighborhoods in New Orleans that you should check out.

The historic center that saw the birth of the city.

With its 300-year-old architecture and wealth of landmarks, the compact French Quarter is the lively epicenter of the city. Take a walking tour, strolling past majestic St. Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square, complete with artists, brass bands, and tarot card readers.

Head to Bourbon Street for neon-lit entertainment, Royal Street for art and antiques, and the whole neighborhood for ghost tours. Catch some jazz at Preservation Hall or Fritzel’s Jazz Club, or stock up on souvenirs at the French Market. Sample classic New Orleans delicacies like muffuletta sandwiches at Central Grocery or beignets at Café du Monde. Or, take a food tour to taste all the flavors of the Quarter.

You might spot locations from the movie Interview With A Vampire. Meanwhile, the home of the book’s author, the late Anne Rice, is a landmark in its own right. Audubon Park is a beautiful spot for a picnic with its ancient live oaks, while the Audubon Zoo is a firm family favorite. To get in a bit of exercise, consider a bike tour of Uptown.

For music, cabaret, and local vibes.

Egal, ob Sie im Karneval feiern, Live-Jazz hören, die reiche Geschichte und das Erbe der Stadt entdecken oder eine Küche probieren möchten, die so vielfältig ist wie die Bevölkerung der Stadt - in den pulsierenden Stadtteilen von New Orleans ist für jeden etwas dabei. Hier sind einige der interessantesten Bezirke von NOLA.

Französisches Viertel

Das als Epizentrum von New Orleans gepriesene French Quarter - oder Vieux Carré - erstreckt sich entlang der Ufer des Mississippi. Wandertouren decken alle Höhepunkte ab, von der historischen St. Louis Kathedrale am Jackson Square über den lebhaften französischen Markt bis zum legendären Nachtleben der Bourbon Street, die für ihre Kneipen, Jazzclubs und Restaurants bekannt ist. Im French Quarter ist zu jeder Tages- und Nachtzeit etwas los, aber es ist am spektakulärsten bei jährlichen Veranstaltungen wie Mardi Gras und dem Jazz & Heritage Festival.

Garden District

Mit seinen prächtigen alten Villen und gepflegten Parks ist das Garden District zweifellos eines der malerischsten in New Orleans. Fahren Sie mit der historischen Seilbahn entlang der St. Charles Avenue oder machen Sie einen Spaziergang, um die Antebellum-Häuser zu bewundern und um den historischen Lafayette Cemetery Nr. 1 zu schlendern. Der Bezirk ist auch ein beliebter Drehort für Horrorfilme wie Interview mit einem Vampir; Geister- und Vampir-Touren führen Reisende an die gruseligsten Orte der Nachbarschaft.

Marigny & Bywater

Dieses kleine Viertel ist ein künstlerisches Zentrum, das sich deutlich lokaler anfühlt als das benachbarte französische Viertel. Besuchen Sie die Frenchman Street, wo Sie zwischen den vielen Bars und Jazzclubs wechseln und in einigen der besten Restaurants der Stadt die lokale Küche genießen können. Kombinieren Sie einen Besuch mit dem benachbarten Bywater, gleich stromabwärts, wo Sie einige der coolsten neuen Bars, Geschäfte und Musiklokale der Stadt finden.

Warehouse District

Das Warehouse District befindet sich im Central Business District und ist besser als Arts District bekannt. Inmitten der Zersiedelung der Innenstadt von New Orleans finden Sie renommierte Museen wie das National WWII Museum und das Ogden Museum of Southern Art sowie zahlreiche Museen und Galerien, elegante Weinbars und stilvolle Boutiquen.


Tremé liegt an der Nordspitze des French Quarter und ist Amerikas ältestes afroamerikanisches Viertel. Besuchen Sie eine geführte Wanderung, um mehr über seine historische Bedeutung zu erfahren, den Geburtsort des Jazz zu entdecken und authentische kreolische Küche zu probieren.

Discover boutiques, coffee shops, and trendy art.

Artisanal bakeries, restaurants, and cafés are the order of the day in this hip residential neighborhood. Along the riverside border, the greenery of Crescent Park provides some excellent walking paths and views of the mighty Mississippi River.

Bywater is a fashionable, revitalized neighborhood with some excellent microbreweries and even a German beer garden. You can also see some of the city’s best street art and murals. The Bywater Art Lofts hosts works by many of New Orleans’ emerging artists, a spot ideal for viewing small, impromptu exhibitions.

A proud culture, classic cuisine, and jazz neighborhood.

Just across Rampart Street from the French Quarter, the Tremé (pronounced Truh-MAY) is America’s oldest African-American neighborhood. Its main landmark is Louis Armstrong Park, named after the legendary jazz trumpeter. Here, you’ll find Congo Square, a location of great cultural importance where enslaved people met and played music, giving rise to what we know as jazz.

Many of New Orleans’ most famous jazz musicians grew up in Tremé, including Troy 'Trombone Shorty' Andrews and Alphonse Picou. You can learn more about the proud history of the city’s African-American community and the mysterious Mardi Gras Indians at the Backstreet Cultural Museum.

City Park is undoubtedly the highlight of this primarily residential neighborhood. With almost 1,300 acres (526 hectares) of lawns, ancient live oaks, and a scenic bayou, both locals and visitors flock to the beloved park for picnics, walks, and entertainment.
