Join us on a tour of Hamburg’s greatest treasures

Germany’s second-largest city boasts a proud seafaring history, and one of the first things visitors notice about Hamburg is how strongly this is woven into the city’s identity. For the warehouse district of Speicherstadt, for example, its stunning waterside architecture and canal system proved so impressive to outsiders that the entire area gained UNESCO status in 2015. The city’s official moniker - the ‘Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg’ - is a throwback to its leading role in the Hanseatic League, a medieval merchant union of largely maritime city-states in the Baltics and Northern Europe, and one of the city’s most infamous characters was the pirate Störtebeker.

Together with an expert local guide, you’ll explore each of these fascinating aspects of Hamburg on this 3-hour private tour. You will also explore the Trostbrücke, Church Jacobi, the WWII bombing of Hamburg, the Great Fire of 1842, and much more!
