Privater Rundgang vom Rathaus bis zum Kreuzfahrtterminal
- City Walks
With this varied and easy tour, you will get to know the inner city and the old town as well as the Speicherstadt and HafenCity. It starts at the town hall, where the architecture, the symbolism of the sculptures placed there give us something about the Hamburg traditions, but also about the self-confidence of the people of Hamburg.
The town hall, it is located in the old town, near the Jungfernstieg: the best known and most popular promenade in Hamburg. Along the Petri Church, you will go to the cathedral square, where the city was once built with the Hammaburg. You hear about "pepper sacks" and "inmates" who used their work to create a city out of the castle. Also from Vikings and the old customs of the brewer who brought Hamburg to the forefront.
Then it goes to the Trostbrücke, where the old town hall stood. Until the great fire of 1842. Just a few steps further and we are at the first port in Hamburg. With the stacking right, an emperor bestowed this once special privileges. Hamburg has been booming ever since. But was everything really right?
In the further course of our amusing and relaxed tour we come across splendid office buildings, beautiful streets, and also the ruins of the Nikolaikirche. Finally, taking a look at Michel, our main church and the city's landmark, also taking historical Deichstraße with us, we come to the Speicherstadt.
After a short break, we continue our tour there: First in the Speicherstadt, the largest historic warehouse complex in Europe. Millions of tons of cocoa and coffee, fine carpets, expensive spices and all kinds of piece goods were stored here, but also refined and sorted. Crisscrossed by canals and channels on which the so-called Schutenschupser once brought the goods, today there are a particularly large number of museums and cafés in this charming area.
The Hafencity behind is also being built on former port areas. Of course, this is at least as controversial among the Hamburgers as the warehouses used to be. While some speak of a fascinating interplay between »tradition and modern«, for others it is more of a district for the rich and beautiful.
During our tour, which will also include laughing and having fun, we get our own picture. We explore the past and present of this area located directly on the Elbe, without falling into black and white painting. We also take the Sandtor, Dallmann and Kaiserkai, the Magellan and Marco Polo terraces, as well as the new traditional shipping port.
