What to expect

From the platform of the Elbphilharmonie, 37 m above the Elbe river, you will have a stunning view into the 21st century’s HafenCity (“HarborCity”). 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 historical buildings from the past.

Cross the customs canal (Zollkanal) that once separated the city and the free port zone. Strolling along the historic site, learn about Hamburg’s Free Port status and how it has helped shaping the city for over 800 years. In the Warehouse District (Speicherstadt), take in the charm of the historic waterways which separate the old storage buildings. Discover how the buildings are used today, if goods from exotic places are still being stored and how the new era of container ships influences this site today.

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 also get to know the meaning of the Hygieia-fountain, the center of the Town Hall’s courtyard and how the famous pirate „Störtebeker“ was captured and brought to Hamburg for trial and execution.

End the tour at the Town Hall, a few steps away from one of Germany’s finest shopping districts.
