Full description
Start your interesting bike tour through Hamburg at the picturesque district Rotherbaum and drive along the Außenalster to the Binnenalster. Here you are greeted by the panorama of the old and new town. Make your way through the Gängeviertel of the new town and the preserved working-class district of the 18th-century, nowadays hosting the art scene. Here you can find the memorial stone of the birthplace of Johannes Brahms. Passing the urban new town you drive across Fleet-Island, the former harbor, following the tracks of the great fire of 1842 to today's modern city.

Discover Neuer Wall with its passages and countless designer shops and enjoy the metropolitan flair. Drive along the Deichstraße, the origin of port operations of Alt-Hamburg, to the famous Speicherstadt. Here, the UNESCO world heritage site, with its unique massive brick architecture from the 19th-century, sits on millions of oak poles within the waterways that are called Fleete. Then make your way through the postmodern HafenCity, the former harbor area. Discover the 110 meter high controversial Elbphilharmonie at its western tip. Stop here and drive to the plaza of Hamburg's new landmark by Europe's longest escalators. Enjoy stunning 360 degree views over the entire city and the harbor.

Finally, follow a path across the new flood protection system offering splendid views of the mighty Elbphilharmonie from below. Drive through the utopic-like publishing building made of steel, located at Baumwall, and pass St. Michael's Church. Follow the historic Peterstraße with the Brahms- and Telemann-Museum. After 3 hours, you finally reach the starting point of the tour passing the exhibition halls.
