What you'll do

Maybe history wasn’t your favorite subject at school, but we promise this won’t be like that. You’ll join a local Hamburg host to see what happens when modern living meets a medieval maritime trading hub.

Sounds pretty cool. See Hamburg’s fascinating history come to life as you explore the historic Speicherstadt district - which was built almost entirely on stilts, and we think that’s worth seeing - and the cutting edge and modern neighborhood of Hafencity.

From the oldest landmarks like the ruins of St Nicholas’ Church to the most contemporary architectural masterpieces, such as The Elbphilharmonie - a juxtaposition we’re sure the Middle Ages sailors who would stop off at this port city never foresaw.

Delve into the wonderful maritime past of a city still ruled by many of its ancient customs today.
