A very nice tour through Hamburg, which we had a lot of fun with. However, you should plan about 6 hours on foot, then it is more relaxed. You should also know that some of the businesses to be visited are closed on Sunday, including the Kölln Haferland. There you start and you have to exchange your voucher for the starting license here in advance. There were four of us on Saturday and it was pretty crowded everywhere. Therefore we recommend doing this tour during the week. We were very excited and had a great day in bright sunshine!

It was the most interesting workshop I have ever attended. The staff was extremely friendly and was available with advice and action. Everything spotlessly clean and you felt in good hands. Also ideal for singles, because I took part alone. I can recommend the workshop to everyone.

It was tailored just for us. We spread the tour over 2 days. Very good idea. You get to parts of Hamburg where you wouldn't have come otherwise. The opening hours are not always correct (UrQuelle), they are from last season.

A very interesting tour with a good description of the route. Unfortunately, one station had a winter break (brewery), so we couldn't redeem the voucher there.

A really great trip with lots of interesting information. Melanie guided us all through this tour with her witty, lively manner. Any time !!
