What you'll do

CORONA VIRUS INFORMATION Ahoy crew! I say it in the words of our Chancellor Angela Merkel: "The Virus has arrived in Europe, it is here, we all have to understand that... What we do matters, it’s not in vain, it’s not for nothing... it’s about saving time.” I can’t offer the tour with a clear conscience. It’s crowded on board, too many people in a confined space. I ask for your understanding and take care! Volker This is what awaits you when it fits better: We follow the traces of the seafarers and dock workers on the Elbe. Stiff breeze on your face, the Elbe downstream, 130 years of architecture, sandy beach under your feet and time to enjoy. We defy wind and weather. Feel like a hamburger :) I'll tell you and show you something about the hard life of dock workers around 1900. And of course ships, ships, ships: from barge to super freighter. From the "Old Elbe Tunnel" to the historic "Landungsbrücken", there we board the ferry. Past the historic fish auction hall with its great industrial architecture and the fish market, we continue on the banks of the Elbe, where the captains used to live. Once at the Finkenwerder pilot station and back to Övelgönne, the museum harbor we visit and an excursion to the beloved Elbe beach. THERE THE TOUR ENDS! The ferry takes you back to the jetties or you take the bus to Altona train station.

Volker (Mr. Sir!)

My job has taken me around the world, but coming back to Hamburg is always the best thing for me :) You can feel that when you are on the road with me. With strong impressions, interesting stories and good feelings! Fewer facts and figures, a little wind blowing around your nose, some sailor yarn, visiting the most beautiful places on the banks of the Elbe and letting go! Hamburg has no queen and no castle, but has been an important port for 830 years. I've known him since I was a child.

Where you'll be

Our little adventure is a mix of boat trip, walk and time jump into the 19th century. We are exactly between high tech and meaningful history. If there is no tour on the calendar on any day, please contact me, nothing is impossible :) As you can see, we are a small intensive group.
