Private Sightseeing Tour with Sedan and English speaking Guide in Hamburg
Discover the Hanseatic city of Hamburg on a guided tour without stress and immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere and enjoy a piece of Hamburg’s lively culture. When talking about their home town, the normally reserved people of Hamburg are not reticent about blowing their own trumpet. You see, most of them take it for granted that it’s the most beautiful city in Germany. And even if residents of other cities should dare to voice their protest, Hamburg really does have a lot to offer: Jungfernstieg with its upmarket shops, the downtown lakes, the Reeperbahn (Hamburg’s entertainment district), the largest harbour in Germany and the old Speicherstadt.
The strikingly picturesque commercial and warehouse complex with its unmistakable red-brick architecture, green copper crowns, charming modest towers, bay windows and gabled roofs offers visitors unique views of historical urban beauty. Visitors are also taken by the number of beautiful small bridges over the countless canals. And all around, aromas of roasted coffee, of tea and various spices from around the world fill the air. Strolling through time, visitors discover the historical beauty of Hamburg’s Speicherstadt accompanied by a guide clad in the traditional robes of Hamburg’s merchants of old. On a little hill, not far from the harbour, you will find the “Michel”, Hamburg’s landmark. It is132 meters high and Germany’s most important protestant baroque building.
A boat trip through the port is a must on every visitor’s itinerary to Hamburg – whatever the season. See one of the world’s greatest harbours – the Port of Hamburg. The tour takes you through the different harbour basins to give you a close-up view of giant ships, channels and canals, container terminals and shipyards. You go through a lock and also into the canals of the Speicherstadt, the historic warehouse district.
During the trip visitors can expect good entertainment from the skipper – in typically jovial northGerman humour – and can learn a great deal about the port, the Speicherstadt and the new HafenCity.
Boat tour on the Alster
On the smaller of the two city-centre lakes, the Binnenalster, passengers are offered stunning views of the panorama of downtown Hamburg, including the city hall tower, the church of St. Nicolai and the famous Alsterhaus department store. On the larger lake, the Aussenalster, the many yachts, the swans, noble villas and verdant parks are all wonderfully picturesque. From the decks of the traditionally white Alster steamers, passengers can enjoy Hamburg from a fully new perspective. In addition to sightseeing tours on the Alster, there are also tours through the Alster canals. The boats leave the bustling Aussenalster for the quieter, more tranquil canals – beautiful villas with tended gardens, modern residential blocks, garden allotments and unspoilt riverbanks slip so closely by you could almost touch them.
