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.

Adriana was an excellent planner and guide. Having done German genealogy work (1600s) wanted to see both Hamburg where my American Ancestors left from and the small villages 1.5 hours east of Hamburg they were from. Did one day walking historical tour of Hamburg and the next day to the east the villages, churches and cemeteries, Ludwigslust estate. She tailored my trip for an older, single woman traveler connecting to past generations and the historical context of those times. Highly Recommend!
