Full description
Discover the contrasts of Hamburg on an exciting bike tour through the Hanseatic city. The tour convenes at Dammtor, just 10 minutes from the bike shop. After you have chosen a suitable bike for yourself, ride towards Sternschanze, through the historical neighborhood of Schröderstift, Sternschanzenpark, and the actual district with its alternative cultural activities.

Continue on along Hafenstrasse in St. Pauli through the Portuguese quarter to Neustadt. Find out more about the project of the artist cooperative “Komm in de Gänge” and pass through the sophisticated boutique scenery along the Inner Alster Lake. Visit the Kontorhaus district from the 1920s and visit the “Münzviertel” in Hammerbrook, a representative case for the discussion on socially responsible city use.

Ride on to St. Georg, where you will find contrasts of multicultural life. The route takes you on to the Inner Alster Lake under the Lombard Bridge with its “campers” and further on to the rowing clubs and consulates before returning to the bike shop.

It was a very interesting, fun and entertaining bike tour. This gave us insights into the "real" Hamburg, with stories, pictures and impressions that you would never have experienced and seen on your own. The special charm of this multi-cultural city was conveyed very well by our guide. The tour is definitely worth the money. Even the "rickety bikes" have turned out to be comfortable. Gladly again!

Grandiose thing, thank you Vincent - recommended to every Hamburg visitor!

We booked this bike tour online in advance for our group of 6 adults and 3 children. Communication with the organizer was very good, but we were probably at the meeting point for our pickup on the wrong side of the street and were first picked up by the guide of another company. The matter cleared up quickly at the bike station at the Juridicum and a Danish family joined the group. Our guide, Vincent, a Ur-Hamburger Jung, who I would highly recommend, changed the route a bit at our request and with consideration for the younger children and we saved the neighborhood. The tour was varied with plenty of stops and a tour of Vincent. On our next visit, I'm sure we will book a bike tour with him again. You can never get the amount of information offered by bus or on foot on your own. THANK YOU
