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, which nowadays hosts 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. 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.

    We haven't found the meeting point yet. A little map of the location would be great and the number in the confirmation was incorrect. Unfortunately, the tour did not include a visit to the Elbphilharmonie. Our guide Bernd made it great and interesting. The tour is suitable for every fitness level!

    Our trip with Bernd Kaupert sightseeing was fantastic. We saw places we would never have found ourselves. Bernd knows a lot about the city and happily shares his knowledge. It was the first time we were on a guided bike city tour, but definitely not the last! Highly recommended.
