Example of Day Program: Hamburg for Beginners

Experience Hamburg with a city tour departing from the Central Station. Visit sights such as the St. Michael's Church, the largest baroque church in Northern Germany with stunning views from its tower and daily organ concerts at noon. Next, the Grocers' Apartments, i.e. the 17th century apartments for widows, are well worth a visit. Then wander back through the Deichstraße, Hamburg's oldest street, in the direction of the historical Speicherstadt with its fascinating brick architecture. At the Gewürzmuseum you can learn about the processes that go into producing some 50 spices, from cultivation to the finished product.

Hamburg's new large-scale urban project - the HafenCity - is located directly behind the Speicherstadt. High-tech, new media and modern living by the water characterize the "playing field" for architects from around the world, who are given the chance to realize their visions here. 

From there, wander on through the HafenCity, past the Messmer Momentum and the Magellan and Marco Polo Terraces. Time permitting, take the opportunity to visit the renovated warehouses, which have been re-opened as museums. For example, view early postwar, racing and sports cars as well as old Porsche models at the new automobile museum. The International Maritime Museum across the street invites you on a journey across 3,000 years of maritime history. Continue your walk in the direction of the inner city and admire the neoclassical Hamburg city hall, which has more rooms than Buckingham Palace.
