What to Expect
Discover the maritime of Hamburg on this walking tour through HafenCity, the Speicherstadt (warehouse district), and the harbor. Discover why people aren’t allowed to live in the Speicherstadt but are in HafenCity. See the contrasts between tradition and modern, and high-income classes and normal earners.
Discover how the city center of Hamburg will be extended by 40% and see the model of the future HafenCity in Kesselhaus. Admire the traditional harbor with its historic ships, such as the Mare Frisium and the JRR Tolkien. You’ll also get the chance to visit a modern pontoon dock, an incredible floating structure in the harbor.
