Your hosts will greet you in front of your cruise ship as soon as it docks and show you to a comfortable, air-conditioned bus. After a relaxing, comfortable journey, you will arrive in Hamburg and meet your professional English-speaking tour guide.
An experienced local guide will meet you upon your arrival, share insight into the local history; and take you to the most prominent places in Hamburg. This Hanseatic City is not only the most beautiful port city in Germany but also one of the richest in the country. It was badly damaged by bombings during WWII but has become the second most exciting city in Germany next to Berlin! In the 1960s the Star Club became famous as the Beatles venue and today the legendary nightlife area is famous for its bars and Red Light District. During the day, the area around the old city with its picturesque canals is one of the nicest high-end shopping areas in all of Germany. The two lakes in the heart of the old city, the Binnen and Aussenalster give the city a natural aquatic beauty.
After the tour, you will have 1 hour to explore the city on your own, do souvenir shopping and get lunch. At the end of the visit, our bus will bring you back to the port, with at least 1.5 hours to spare before its departure.
