What to Expect
Experience Christmas in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There is nothing better than strolling through the bright lights of the most amazing places in the Hanseatic city of Hamburg: the harbor and the Reeperbahn. This is a fantastic tour from HafenCity to the red light district.
The tour starts at Überseequartier metro station (on line 4), as the setting sun bathes the HafenCity in a warm and cozy twilight. Pass by the cruise terminal where large cruise ships dock to the Marco Polo Terraces, where the impressive Marco Polo Tower stands. See the illuminated windows on Am Kaiserkai and walk down Großer Grasbrook to the Elbphilharmonie Pavillon. There you will learn interesting and curious facts about this new and sometimes controversial concert house.
Continue on towards the Elbe Philharmonic Hall and enjoy the fantastic views of the historical Speicherstadt (warehouse district) and its unique, 130-year-old brick facades. Stroll along the quay to Vasco-da-Gama-Platz, which is located directly by the marina, and on to the new ferry terminal at the Elbe Philharmonic Hall.
Board the ferry and cruise past the panorama of HafenCity and the Speicherstadt towards St. Pauli and the Landing Bridges. From there you will go down deep to the Old Elbe Tunnel and then up the harbor steps to Hotel Hafen Hamburg, where you can enjoy the best views of the lights of the harbor.
The Dancing Towers and Spielbudenplatz lead you into the red light district, and you will continue on along the festively decorated Reeperbahn. Here you can take in the aroma of delicious temptations from the Santa Pauli Christmas Market.
Afterwards you will explore the sinful mile and take a look at the Davidwache, the most famous police station in Germany. In front of the Davidwache and Davidstraße, even more “temptations” will attract you as you pass by. You can continue on the fun at the private St. Pauli loft, where the tour ends with a drink and a sweet treat.
