Maritime Tours through Hamburg

Experience the maritime sides of the Hanseatic City

Hamburg is characterised by water. The Alster and Elbe rivers give the Hanseatic city its unmistakable character. Go on an individual discovery tour along the water in Hamburg, for example with a tour along the Elbe or once around the Alster. In any case, you should pay a visit to Speicherstadt & HafenCity: Here you can experience the maritime flair of Hamburg.
