Approximately 3½ Hours
Experience Hamburg at dusk, try a German pretzel, and form your own impression of Hamburg's famous nightlife as you view all major highlights of the city.
Your tour starts with the newest part of town -- Hafen City -- adjacent to the historic UNESCO World Heritage Site warehouse district. Passing this extraordinary combination of architectural styles, take in the view of the Elbe River as you drive along the Landungsbrücken jetties. Old sailing ships often dock here. Before you head towards the city center, pass the Old Elbe Tunnel and the Planten und Blomen Park.
See Hamburg's landmark St Michael's Church; then, leave the coach at the historic Deichstrasse. This tiny, cozy street shows some of the historical architecture that is typical of northern Germany. Walk past grand Baroque façades as well as small frame houses.
At a local microbrewery, enjoy a freshly-brewed German beer and a salty pretzel.
Your tour continues with a photo stop at Hamburg's beautiful Town Hall, built in North German Renaissance style.
Next, your guide will take you on an eye-opening stroll along the Reeperbahn Boulevard -- Hamburg's famous entertainment and red-light district. Nowadays this area is a popular spot in Hamburg's nightlife scene.
During your walk, you will stop in front of an old fishermen's pub for a schnapps -- a typical local liqueur. Have a quick look in the door for a glimpse of Old Hamburg before you head back to the ship.
