This is a tour with a "bit of everything"


We will visit a lot of the important places and monuments of Hamburg during this private guided tour. You will get an unique view of the city. Explore the town center, the warehouse district, the new city planning project HafenCity and the port area.

One of the highlights is the new Elbphilharmonie - the amazing new concert hall in Hamburg. We will visit the public are - the so-called PLAZA - platform between the historic warehouse and the glass building. On this platform we can also enjoy a great view over the port and the banks of the Elbe river.

We can also visit one of the most beautiful baroque churches in the Northern part of Germany and no. 1 landmark: the St. Michel's Church (Michel) or descend to the more than 100 years old Elbtunnel (tunnel underneath the Elbe river).

In between we can taste a cup of coffee in one of our best coffee roasteries or have a typical fish sandwich at the port.

FOR BIGGER DISTANCES WE WILL USE THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM

A Recent Review of this tour

If you want to our Hamburg, Jutta the best guide in the city. She has a wealth of knowledge and passion about the city. She knows all the little "nooks & crannies" usually overlooked by tourists. Her four-hour tour was comprehensive and absolutely delightful. Just as important, it was exactly what we had asked for, and adapted to our individual interests. Jutta worth every penny-don't use anyone else!!
