Full description

Start the tour in the heart of Altona where you will meet your guide. Stroll together along one of the oldest streets of Hamburg - the Große Bergstraße.

Continue along boulevards until you get a wonderful view of the Elbe and the smell of the fishing port slowly rising to your noses. In between, enjoy a great mix of maritime delicacies and flavors from all over the world. Continue on to the neighbouring town of Ottensen, which were occupied by Danes for a long time. Your guide will tell you what this village-like district has to do with smuggling, ship's propellers and cigars and why the fight for women's rights was so prominent in this area.

Fill your stomach with many local delicacies and conclude the tour fully satisfied.

Es war das Highlight schlechthin unseres Hamburg-Besuchs. Nicht nur kulinarisch. Wir haben viel über Altona und Ottensen erfahren, die drei Stunden waren sehr kurzweilig und genussvoll in jeder Hinsicht und vergingen wie im Flug.
