Gain a broad understanding of Hamburg by driving past its most intriguing landmarks and by touring iconic St. Michael’s Church and the phenomenal town hall.


After departing from the pier, you will soon begin touring Hamburg, a sprawling city that lies on the Elbe River. Charlemagne founded Hamburg in 810 A.D., so there are plenty of historical sites even though much of the city was destroyed in the fire of 1842 and by Allied bombing during World War II.


As an introduction to Hamburg’s charms, you will drive through the 100-year-old Gothic-style warehouse district near the harbor. Known as the Speicherstadt, it is the world’s largest complex of warehouses, most of which are made of beautiful red brick.


Continuing on past the exquisite shopping promenade Jungfernstieg and Germany’s oldest stock exchange, you will arrive at the town hall for a visit if both its exterior and interior. This impressive neo-Renaissance masterpiece, with more than 647 ornate rooms, is the symbolic heart of Hamburg.


Following a photo stop at St. Nicholas Church, which is now a war memorial, you will visit St. Michael’s Church, whose soaring clock tower has loomed over the city since the 1680s. The organs inside are remarkable, especially the largest one with five keyboards.


Then, it’s one spectacular photo opportunity after another. You will pause briefly at the modest 17th-century almshouse for the widows of shopkeepers, gorgeous Alster Lake downtown, and the telecommunications tower named after the German physicist Heinrich Hertz. Afterwards, you will return to the pier.


Need to Know:

Note: This tour includes approximately 90 minutes of easy to moderate walking that includes some steps, cobblestone and uneven surfaces to negotiate. The Town Hall is still functioning as the seat of the senate and may close on short notice due to official business. In this case, you’ll have an extended outside stop with detailed explanations from your guide.
