      About This Hamburg Tour

      After you've taken a private guided driving tour around Hamburg, the next best thing to do is take to the water. Aboard a vessel, you'll see why the Port of Hamburg is the country's "Gateway to the World." Take in the incredible views of Germany's largest port city as you learn about the extraordinary richness of this historic city. Hamburg boasts over 800 years of history, but it's not content to remain as is. This intriguing tour explores Hamburg City plans and redevelopment, a sneak peek into the future.

      Before your harbor cruise, be sure to try a delicious fish roll (own expense), a Hamburg specialty! Locally known as fischbrotchen, this fish sandwich is accompanied by components like onions, pickles, remoulade, horseradish sauce, ketchup, or cocktail sauce. You can find fish rolls served at fast food stands or many take-out restaurants around Hamburg. Your guide will tell you where to get them und will stay with you on board during the cruise so that you won't miss any important information.

      See first-hand the fantastic development of HafenCity. This area is undergoing a great deal of advancement. Hotels, shops, office buildings, and residential areas are replacing old port warehouses. The expected completion date is around 2030. The most striking landmark of this growing area is the Elbe Philharmonic Hall. Construction began in 2007 and this modern building is expected to open in January 2017. This is just one of the many areas of the city that is being re-imagined. Notice the blend of historical architecture mixed with modern design as you cruise around Germany's biggest harbor.

      I'll sing to that

      Hamburg's first public opera house opened in 1678, making it the oldest opera in Germany. The Hamburg State Opera auditorium was completely destroyed during World War II by a bombing raid, and thankfully it was rebuilt a few years later. Since its inception, the goal of the Hamburg State Opera is to make its productions accessible to a wide variety of audiences. Admission costs are between 4 and 160 Euros, making it affordable for everyone.
