Forget all the clichés you’re secretly harboring about German food, and eat your way around Hamburg with one of our local Hamburg hosts who can’t wait to show you that their city’s cuisine is a world away from the sausages, schnitzels, sauerkraut you thought you were in for. In this maritime city, the name of the game is more water-sourced delicacies and all manner of potato delights.

You’ll food crawl (or roll, who are we to say how much you plan on eating) around the bohemian neighborhood of Sternschanze, trying all sorts of delights like franzbrötchen, a cinnamon-infused take on the French croissant, fischbrötchen, a roll filled with salty North Sea pickled herring and pannfisch, fresh, herby fish in a light mustard sauce.

And like any food experience worth its salt, of course, there’s room for dessert (we’d recommend rote grütze, a red fruit pudding cooked from black and red currants, raspberries or cherries served with vanilla sauce) and time for a tipple like a beer overlooking the River Elbe.

  • Join a host to discover Hamburg’s food culture and the classic north German dishes that are local favorites

  • Eat and drink your way around the bohemian Sternschanze neighborhood and discover its hipster vibe

  • Enjoy 6-8 tastings of local food and drinks from coffee shops, street food markets, and authentic eateries

  • Discover the city’s culinary history and the influence the harbor has had on its dishes

  • Get recommendations from your hosts on restaurants and bars to try during the rest of your trip, so you can continue to eat and drink like a local!

This experience will be personalized to you!

A perfect day in Lübeck

We had an absolutely wonderful walking tour of Lübeck. Our guide, Dez, was so knowledgable and attentive. He knew the city so well and had a depth of knowledge of its history, architecture, food, etc. He made sure our needs were met. I would recommend this tour to anyone. It was perfect!
