Full description
Explore the warehouse district of the Speicherstadt with a guide on a 2-hour walking tour of Hamburg, and learn how the city is being transformed for 21st-century life.

See the UNESCO World Heritage monuments of the industrial area, originally developed on a group of narrow islands in the River Elbe between 1885 and 1925 and partly rebuilt between 1949 and 1967. Stroll down the side streets and hidden alleyways and explore the canals of an urban gem.

Smell coffee beans being roasted and lager being brewed as you encounter vendors selling Persian carpets and other items from the Orient. Then, cross the river to the new HafenCity and see stunning examples of contemporary architecture, such as the Elbphilharmonie concert hall.
