Everyone who has ever visited Hamburg is enthusiastic about its personality, elegance and maritime charm. Now it’s your turn to discover its treasures and explore the diversity in a walking tour that covers all the main highlights of this cosmopolitan city. Hamburg, also called “The gate of the world”, is considered to be a city-port always in movement, always evolving. As the second largest city in Germany, Hamburg is also considered to be one of Germany’s wealthiest cities. In a place where history blends with the Modern Age, you will find a little for everyone’s taste. Like the impressive City Hall, the seat of the government of Hamburg. The old City Hall was destroyed in a fire in 1842 and rebuilding took 44 years, with a whopping cost of 80 million euros, to today’s standards. At Deichstraße, the oldest remaining street in the Old Town of Hamburg, be sure to observe lavishly restored houses from the 17th through the 19th century.
From the crazy night life in the Red District in Reeperbahn, to sailing or enjoying a calm river cruise on Alster, or a visit to the baroque protestant church of St. Michael, or even a view of the famous Elbphilharmonie building, Hamburg will match all requests.
