Hamburg: Speicherstadt and Hafencity Guided Tour

1. Hamburg: Speicherstadt and Hafencity Guided Tour

Explore Hamburg from new Elbphilharmonie through to the historic Speicherstadt and on to the futuristic Hafencity. Enjoy a guided tour of Elbphilharmonie, this masterpiece of architecture with its abstract front is situated like a crown over the harbor and is the new landmark of the city.  Travel from the Elbphilharmonie to the Kaiser, past the Miniaturwunderland with the world's largest model railway, the old coffee roasting plant and the spice museum to the Magellan Terraces right across the Speicherstadt. Here you will follow in the footsteps of the Hanseatic merchants, the so-called Pfeffersäcken. The cathedral-like inner courtyards on the Dutch Brook make it clear that it was not the church but trade and money that determined everyday life in Hamburg.  After this journey to the past, visit the newest and most modern part of the city, Hafencity. This offers the perfect contrast to the Speicherstadt and shows with sophisticated and environmentally friendly buildings what is architecturally possible today.
