Full description
On this interesting tour you get to see 3 of the most fascinating sights in Hamburg: St. Michael’s Church, the Old Elbe Tunnel, and the harbor. St. Michael’s Church is lovingly called “Michel” by the Hamburg residents and is the youngest of the 5 main churches in the city. Admire the 5 organs, the largest clock tower in Germany, and the impressive bell tower. Enjoy the breathtaking views from the observation deck, which you can access by walking or by lift. Check out the widow homes from the 17th century behind the church in the Krayenkamp, the last remaining examples of typical courtyards buildings around courtyards in Hamburg. You then walk through the Portuguese quarter in the direction of the landing stages. Here you can see the two ships by the shore: Rickmer Rickmers and Cap San Diego. While the hustle and bustle of the landing stages invites you to linger for a while, you continue on to the Old Elbe Tunnel. Climb up the stairs in the over 100-year old construction or take the elevator. Depending on the time remaining, you’ll go under the River Elbe to Steinwerder, where you can enjoy the wonderful panoramic view over the city of Hamburg.

Brilliant tour guide, very informative!

The guide we had was fantastic. It was only me and my boyfriend and the guide for the entire thing so we were very fortunate. The guide was really lovely, pointing out cafes, restaurants and bars that we could go and visit whilst staying in Hamburg. All in all is was a great two hours!

Kompetente und interessante Führung

Unsere Führerin Jutta vermittelte uns in 2 Stunden einen interessanten Einblick in Hamburgs Geschichte, Hafen und den Elbtunnel. Sie erklärte wie die Idee zur Elb-Philharmonie entstanden ist, wie es zur zehnfachen Kostenüberschreitung gekommen ist und wie die Luxuswohnungen auf einen Scheich gewirkt haben. Auch wenn der Scheich nicht beeindruckt war von der klimaschützerischen Bauweise, waren wir alle sehr beeindruckt von der Architektur des neuen Wahrzeichens von Hamburg und von dem fundierten Wissen und der unterhaltenden Art und Weise mit der unsere Führerin auch am Ende eines langen Siteseeing Tags zu motivieren vermochte. Es waren zwei sehr gut investierte Stunden!
