Hamburg Quadruple

If you want to see where the heart of Hamburg beats, you have to take to the water. That's why the Alster and harbour tours are integral components of the sightseeing tour. Three tours which you can enjoy on three dates you select yourself! Allow yourself to be whisked off into the secrets of the maritime world by a humorous 'harbour expert' on board the barge, and enjoy the sight of the magnificent villas and Hanseatic way of life during your Alster tour.

Our present for you! Enjoy a tasty tidbit of fish at Tom & Konsorten directly in the HafenCity Am Kaiserkai!
