Full description
Enjoy the maritime flair and learn about the historic background of the port of Hamburg. This fascinating tour will teach you about the development of how Hamburg became the biggest non-capital metropolis in Europe. The tour starts at the so-called Kehrwiederspitze right next to the Speicherstadt. Whilst here you will hear the interesting history of the biggest warehouse district in the world, the construction, statistics, today’s use and ownership structure. If possible, visiting an oriental carpet retailer will also be part of the tour at this particular location.  Receive an impression of the dimension of the Hafencity in the Kesselhaus which was formerly used as a power station to ensure electric power supply in the Speicherstadt. Marvel at this wooden and detailed model that not only shows the completed projects but also the prospective plans for urban development in the Hafencity. Explore the Hafencity as a project of urban regeneration and learn about city building and gentrification. In addition to that, political, social and economic secrets will be uncovered. Finish the tour in front of the Elbe Philharmonic and get comprehensive information about one of Hamburg's newest landmarks.

Ende gut - alles gut

Unser Treffpunkt mit den privaten Guide wurde uns in mehreren Mails avisiert: "Vor dem Hard Rock Café bei den St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, Brücke 5". Nur leider war um 16 Uhr dort weit und breit kein Guide. Nach mehreren Telefonaten bekamen wir die Info, dass sich der Treffpunkt wegen des Hafengeburtstages geändert hätte. Als uns - die wir Hamburg nicht kennen - der Guide dann auch noch den (langen!!!) Weg zum neuen Treffpunkt erklären wollte, war ich doch etwas verärgert und wollte die Tour schon absagen. Auf meine Bitte, uns vom weithin sichtbaren Riesenrad doch abzuholen, ging der Guide gottseidank ein. Was dann kam, entschädigte uns für allen Ärger. Hannes Klenner bot uns in mehr als zwei Stunden eine sehr informative und kurzweilige Tour durch Hamburg, die den Preis für 4 Personen absolut wert war. Auf unsere Wünsche nach einer etwas anderen Route ging er gerne ein. Wie gesagt - Ende gut - alles gut! Die Tour war ein Highlight unseres Hamburg-Wochenendes! Danke Hannes!
