Historic Hamburg

Searching for traces in the Hanseatic City

The old town is actually the oldest part of Hamburg and for many tourists the real attraction. The best known are the Chilehaus and the Kontorhäuser at Burchardplatz, but also the Sprinkenhof, Mohlenhof and Meßberghof are popular tourist destinations. The Alte Elbtunnel, however, remains undisputed. The best way to explore the old town is on foot. Numerous city tours take place every day and show you the historical heritage of the Hanseatic City from various points of view.

When the old Elbe Tunnel, also called St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel, opened in 1911, it was a technical sensation. Today, it is a nostalgic and lovingly tended piece of Hamburg history – and has already celebrated its 100th anniversary.
