Daytrip Hamburg 

Barge tour on the river Elbe combined with shore excursion to the most beautiful places in Hamburg 

August 24th, 2016; 10:00am – 5:30pm

Costs: 95 Euro p. person (excl. menues and beverages)

Fleete, old warehouses, new promenades, brick facades and carpet stores – such a unique variety you will get to experience on our tour of the cultural heritage "Speicherstadt" which will bring you into the new city on the water, the "HafenCity". We’ll also take you to see the prominent construction site - Elbphilharmonie.

Afterwards, we’ll continue on with a barge tour:

Once aboard, the barge will go along the HafenCity, the Elbphilharmonie, the docks, the container terminals, beautiful villas and beaches to Blankenese, and the Italianate village on the hills in the west of Hamburg.

At Blankenese, we will go on shore again to take a walk through this special place with wonderful viewpoints on the Elbe. You will learn about the old ferry, the Ox Trail and the fruit sailors as well as see old fishermen's houses. For lunch, we’ll visit the restaurant Ahrberg, a traditional Hamburg restaurant. Then we enjoy a coffee on the terrace Süllberg with a beautiful view of the river Elbe.

At the end of the tour a bus with a guide will accompany you back to the city of Hamburg.

Walking Food Tour Hamburg 

Between the Schanze and St. Pauli

August 25th, 2016; 11:30am – 2:30pm

Costs: 60 Euro p. person

Take a stroll with us through the alternative Schanzen quarter and get a behind-the-scenes look at this youthful part of town. Hip, political, and colorful – take in the living history while sampling culinary delights from small, specially selected establishments.

The culinary sightseeing tour will then lead you towards the scenic Caroline quarter, better known as the "Karoviertel," in St. Pauli. The neighborhood is known as the “working class quarter”, which is now a quaint area with boutiques and cafes. We invite you to wander the streets and explore this unique area. Come and embark on an adventure with us!

During this city tour in these selected Hamburg neighborhoods, you'll learn about the area’s history and architecture, as well as entertainment. You will sample various unique culinary specialties and receive selected restaurant advice. 

Delicious food samples from:

  • a Portuguese café
  • a traditional cheese shop
  • an old-fashioned candy shop
  • a neighborhood snack stand
  • a long-established Turkish grill restaurant
  • an organic restaurant
  • a small and cozy café

For most, the food samples are enough to constitute a full lunch. Please inform us of any special dietary requirements (vegetarian, diabetic, etc). We will try to tailor our tour accordingly.

Please Note: The tour is not suitable for vegans, people with lactose or gluten intolerance, or those with nut allergies.

Moving beyond sight

August 25th, 2016; 3:30pm – 5:00pm

Costs: 21 Euro p.person

The idea is simple: In completely darkened rooms, several trainers who are legally blind, lead small groups of guests through an exhibition in which everyday situations are experienced altogether differently, without eyesight. In the dark, the daily routine becomes a new experience. A reverse of roles is created: sighted people are confronted with different ways of perception; the trainers will guide participants, providing security and a sense of orientation transmitting a world without pictures.
