What to expect

What are the things not to miss during a Hamburg trip? Definitely a visit of the new landmark of town, the Elbphilharmonie concert hall, and a cruise of the Port of Hamburg. This tour combines both and offers the possibility to do the port tour independently from the guided tour, at your chosen time of the day.

At first, a motivated tour guide will provide you with interesting and entertaining information about one of the largest concert halls of the world, shining light on its status today and its immense delays in construction. For a long time, the building was a controversial topic. Nowadays it receives many positive responses. Admire this masterpiece of architecture yourself! Of course, you will also take a ride on its gigantic curved escalator to the Plaza viewing platform. Here you can listen to stories and background information from your tour guide, while taking in splendid panoramic views over the Port of Hamburg. When all questions are answered, the tour guide will say farewell and you can decide freely how much more time you would like to spend at the Elbphilharmonie.

However, do not wait too long for the next highlight, as also the harbor has plenty to offer. Enjoy the cruise along the famous St. Pauli Piers, the “Cap San Diego”, the beautiful Speicherstadt (depending on the tide) and impressive container ships. The ticket for the port cruise is not time-bound and can be redeemed at the ship company at the St. Pauli Piers until the early evening. The boats and ships depart on a regular basis several times during the day. You will be accompanied by a local skipper, who will entertain the guests with many anecdotes as well as interesting dates and facts.
