Full description
Discover the contrasts of Hamburg on an exciting bike tour through the Hanseatic city. The tour convenes at Dammtor, just 10 minutes from the bike shop. After you have chosen a suitable bike for yourself, ride towards Sternschanze, through the historical neighborhood of Schröderstift, Sternschanzenpark, and the actual district with its alternative cultural activities. Continue on along Hafenstrasse in St. Pauli through the Portuguese quarter to Neustadt. Find out more about the project of the artist cooperative “Komm in de Gänge” and pass through the sophisticated boutique scenery along the Inner Alster Lake. Visit the Kontorhaus district from the 1920s and visit the “Münzviertel” in Hammerbrook, a representative case for the discussion on socially responsible city use. Ride on to St. Georg, where you will find contrasts of multicultural life. The route takes you on to the Inner Alster Lake under the Lombard Bridge with its “campers” and further on to the rowing clubs and consulates before returning to the bike shop.

    Bernd hat uns mit einer tollen Tour durch Hamburg geführt, bei der die Vielschichtigkeit der Stadt toll gezeigt wurde. Er hat sich viel Zeit genommen, ist auf unsere Fragen und Wünsche eingegangen und hat uns mit seiner charmanten Art und Weise begeistert. Immer wieder gerne.

    Die etwas mehr als 3-stündige Tour mit Steffen (Rasmus ;)) hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Es war sehr unterhaltsam, witzig & informativ. Steffen hat uns ohne Probleme durch die Straßen von Hamburg geführt. Wir haben viele „Ecken“ gesehen, die wir bisher nicht kannten… Die Tour ist auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert…

    Bernd hat unsere Tour wirklich super gut geführt. Er hat interessante, wenig bekannte Infos über Hamburger Stadtteile und deren Historie erzählt. Außerdem ist er auf die Wünsche der Teilnehmer eingegangen, wohin wir lieber fahren wollen und hat darauf geachtet, dass alle gut ankommen. Wir hatten unterwegs einen Platten, aber der war schnell geflickt und es konnte weitergehen. Wir würden nochmal eine Tour mit Bernd machen :-)
