Full description

Make the most of your time onshore and explore Hamburg on a guided tour from Kiel. Learn about Hamburg's essential role in the historic Hanseatic League, visit the ruins of St. Nicholas Church, and stroll down Hamburg's oldest street, Deischstrasse.

Meet your driver in front of your cruise ship just after docking and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned bus. After a relaxing journey, arrive in Hamburg and meet your local tour guide.

Enjoy a stroll through the historic heart of Hamburg and see the stunning Town Hall. As you walk, learn about Hamburg's role in the Hanseatic League from your guide. Continue to cross the ancient Trost bridge and visit the St Nikolas Church.

As you stand next to this burnt-out shell of a church, learn how it acts as a way to remember the near-total destruction of the city during World War II. Leave the church and head down Deichstrasse, the oldest street in Hamburg. As you walk down this historic street, enjoy the view of the nearby Elbe River.

Before returning to the bus, continue wandering down the river and through the scenic Landungsbrucke river walk. Drive over to the UNESCO World Heritage site, Speicherstadt, and see where historically traders stored their goods.

Explore the Hafencity, the newest area of Hamburg which includes the iconic Elbphilharmonie. After your guided tour ends, enjoy 1 hour to explore Hamburg on your own. Grab lunch, buy some souvenirs, or explore one of Hamburg's museums.

After returning to Kiel, you will have about 1.5 hours before your cruise departs, giving you time to explore Kiel or relax with a coffee.
