Tour description Elbphilharmonie + UNESCO World Heritage Warehouse District + City Center TOUR
From the platform of the Elbphilharmonie, 37 m above the Elbe river, we have a stunning view into the 21st century’s HafenCity (HarborCity) (we do not visit foyer areas and Grand Hall).
The HafenCity has been described as one of Western Europe’s most ambitious projects of urban development. Here, we will see modern and sustainable architecture on a grand scale! And if you know just where to look, you can still find a few protected buildings from the past!
We will cross the customs canal (Zollkanal) that once separated the city and the free port zone.
As we find our way between historic sites, we will learn about Hamburg’s Free Port status and how it has helped shaping the city for over 800 years.
In the Warehouse District (Speicherstadt), we will take in the charm of the historic waterways which separate the old storage buildings.
We will learn about the different occupations that were necessary to operate one of Europe’s busiest trade hubs.
- How has time changed things here?
- How are the buildings used today?
- Are goods from exotic places still being stored here?
- And, how does the new era of container ships influence this site today?
You will hear about the famous Hamburg swans, how Hamburg could become one of the leading port cities in the world and why it took almost 50 years to rebuild the Town Hall after a devastating fire in 1842.
You will learn about the meaning of the Hygieia-fountain, the center of the Town Hall’s courtyard and how the famous pirate „Stoertebeker“ was captured and brought to Hamburg for trial and execution.
Come with us and marvel at these unique treasures.
We will end our tour at the Town Hall, a few steps away from one of Germany’s finest shopping districts.
