Maybe history wasn’t your favorite subject at school, but we promise this won’t be like that. You’ll join a local Hamburg host to see what happens when modern living meets a medieval maritime trading hub.

 Sounds pretty cool. See Hamburg’s fascinating history come to life as you explore the historic Speicherstadt district - which was built almost entirely on stilts, and we think that’s worth seeing - and the cutting edge and modern neighborhood of Hafencity.

From the oldest landmarks like the ruins of St Nicholas’ Church to the most contemporary architectural masterpieces, such as The Elbphilharmonie - a juxtaposition we’re sure the Middle Ages sailors who would stop off at this port city never foresaw.

With a coffee or perhaps a beer in hand (life is vastly improved by both of these things), delve into the wonderful maritime past of a city still ruled by many of its ancient customs today.

    • Join a history-loving host and discover Hamburg’s rich heritage - past and present
    • Visit famous historic landmarks which played important roles in Hamburg’s history as a port
    • See the iconic neighborhood Speicherstadt, and discover the history of its canals and stilted warehouses
    • From the old into the new, make your way to Hafencity, where you can get a taste of contemporary life
    • Visit the most famous and historic churches, like the ruins like St Nicholas’, and the juxtaposing architectural masterpiece, The Elbphilharmonie
    • Chat to your host about the city’s heritage as you enjoy a casually educational day out together. Maybe even tell them a bit about the history of your town or city!
