ShoreTrips says...

Hamburg or as we like to refer to it, Venice of the North, boasts dozens of canals and bridges amidst an array of stunning architectural gems reminiscent of northeastern Italy. Although that's where the comparisons end. With its rich history and eye-catching buildings, Hamburg well exceeds the hype. And you'll find out why. After World War II, the city was forced to rebuild and reinvent. The outcome? A stunning mix of old and new architecture that effortlessly blends together to create the hip and historic essence of Hamburg.

You will begin your journey with a relaxing drive to the city of Hamburg, passing Germany's beautiful landscape on the way. Once in the heart of Hamburg, you will connect with a licensed guide for two hours. Together you will admire exceptional landmarks like the Town Hall, St. Nikolai Church (still a burnt out shell from allied bombings in World War II), and Trost Bridge.

You'll also visit one of the world's masterpieces of human creations, the Speicherstadt and Chilehaus - two UNESCO World Heritage sites exhibiting some of the most captivating gothic revival architecture in Europe.

This city isn't your traditional tourist destination. With its rich character, you'll be able to explore vibrant neighborhoods and meet locals making your experience deeply personal. And there's plenty of time to do that. After your guided tour, you'll have two hours of free time to explore parts of the city that interest you as well as grab a bite to eat and visit area shops.

There is much to see and what is essential to one is not for another. So take the guidance of our guides and escorts as they listen to you and make their suggestions for your perfect day - even if there are a lot of you!
