Spectacular warehouses, red bricks, canals, rope winches and a new city on the waterfront – experience the UNESCO world heritage site Kontorhausviertel with the famous Chilehaus and the impressive warehouses of the Speicherstadt on this guided city walk. Moreover, we will visit the Hafencity which extends Hamburg’s city centre to the River Elbe. Here we will also see the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, the Maritime Museum and the Überseequartier. Our walk leads us through three prominent quarters of the city that underline Hamburg’s dynamic development.

Starting with the famous office buildings, the so-called “Kontorhäuser”, Sprinkenhof, Chilehaus and Messberghof we will cross the Zollkanal to get to the Speicherstadt. Here you can expect picturesque scenes like the “Wasserschloss“ and the red-brick warehouses along the canal at Holländischer Brook. From there we walk to the Hafencity, one of the biggest urban development projects in the whole of Europe currently under construction, with the Überseeboulevard and the Magdeburger Hafen. Our tour ends at Magellan-Terrassen with a view on the Elbe Philharmonic Hall.
