Well thought out, beautiful route through the Hafencity, Elphi to the Landungsbrücken. For the children (ages 8, 10) easily solvable questions and always with an interestingly described contribution on the cards. The corresponding photos on the cards for the stations are very useful and helpful. Another advantage is that everything can be done at your own pace with stops in between at Eis & Co.

Highly recommended with a mega friendly, helpful captain! A breathtaking sight on one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Book the harbor tour here, of course there are also sales on site, but they are cheaper here and it's just as quick and very uncomplicated! Tip is worth it!

Shows you the industrial side of Hamburg in a good fashion, last the perfect duration.

Very nice and cozy recommendable funny companion is definitely worth the money
