Full description

Hear the seagulls screeding and the water splashing as you stroll through the Port of Hamburg while exploring the city’s trade, industrial and war history. Immerse yourself in the bustling atmosphere of one of the largest shipping ports in the world. Enjoy the breathtaking industrial landscapes.

Your 2-hour walking tour will begin at the St Pauli Fish Market, where you will find a hidden gem of Hamburg’s port – the U-434 submarine. Take a moment to admire this fully functioning warship and learn about the city’s major industrial role during WWII and post-war. Follow your Private Guide to discover spicy secrets about Hamburg in its red light district – the Reeperbahn street, known for its busy nightlife, trendy bars and nightclubs.

Despite its industrial role this area is also a cultural hub of Hamburg. See the peaceful St Pauli Church , the Beatles memorial at the Beatles-Plaza, and Davidwache, the famous brick police station, which had its appearance in many movies and TV programs. Admire the scenic views of Elbe and its harbor as you stroll along the charming promenade with its busy landing bridges, the entrance to the Elbe Tunnel, Pegeltrum (water level tower) and the docked Rickmer Rickmers. Soak in the atmosphere of Germany’s “Gateway to the World”!

Choose the 3-hour option to enhance your experience with a visit to Hamburg’s floating landmark – the Rickmer Rickmers. This 1896 freighter hosts interesting exhibitions on maritime and even has a functioning post office where you can send a postcard directly from the ship! It’s a place where the legends about sea voyages to distant lands come to life!
