A story about Hamburg's fight for survival and the resilience of its citizens

This is the ideal tour for the people that want to beyond what meets the eye and learn about Hamburg's past in a fun and entertaining way. Using our imagination we'll go back in time to discover the dramatic past hidden behind Hamburg's mayor touristic spots. Each place we'll visit has it's own story and features different characters that put together helped shape the bittersweet story of Hamburg. We'll start our visit with the legend of Hamburg's most famous pirate, Klaus Störtebeker, and as we go from one station to the other we'll learn about the Great Fire of Hamburg in 1842 and Operation Gomorrah (Allied bombing during WWII), as well as the Black Death and the Cholera Epidemie. We'll finish our tour with an exciting visit to the U-Boat Museum where we'll get the chance to go inside a Russian Submarine used during the Cold War.

We enjoyed our tour with Adriana very much. Despite a rainy windy day in Hamburg we learnt a lot from this knowledgeable personable guide. We discovered sights and stories about Hamburg that we would never have found by ourselves. Thank you Adriana
