All Access Hamburg – The Kontorhaus district and Speicherstadt

The collection of old warehouse buildings that form the Speicherstadt and the adjacent Kontorhäuser office buildings, historically used by Hamburg’s merchants, were awarded the status of UNESCO World Heritage site in July 2015. Here, the idyllic scene that awaits visitors to Hamburg is one you certainly wouldn’t expect to find at the centre of an international port city! Wilhelminian Gothic brickwork that dates back to the city’s founding meets bizarre gables and towers, which are reflected in the canals. For wheelchair users, the historical Speicherstadt can be a challenge due to its many cobbled streets and lack of lowered curbs. These tour suggestions can give you some ideas for accessible sightseeing and will guide you to the most picturesque parts of the Kontorhausviertel and the Speicherstadt.

All Access Hamburg – St. Pauli with the Reeperbahn and Landungsbrücken

The Reeperbahn, 930 metres of pure hedonism… the theatres, musicals, discos, nightclubs, restaurants and table dance shows that can be found along it and down its side streets offer pure, unadulterated entertainment all night long! Wheelchair access is good, yet at the weekends you will have to negotiate quite large crowds, both while on the street and in the various venues along the ‘geile Meile’, (i.e. the ‘vile mile’ or ‘sin street’!) as German musician Udo Lindenberg calls it. If you like having a bit more room to manoeuvre and are flexible with your time while in Hamburg, the Kiez-Bummel tours on Thursday evenings are highly recommended. The clubs, bars and theatres with the best access on these tours are indicated.
