What to expect

Discover Hamburg twice by land and water with this exclusive combination ticket. The one-hour guided tour of the Elbphilharmonie starts with a small shore excursion to the 'Elphi' at the metro station Baumwall/Elbphilharmonie. After gathering your first impressions in the UNESCO World Heritage Speicherstadt, you will be able to take the longest curved escalator in the world to the inner plaza. Here, you'll be introduced to the background knowledge into the history of its construction and creation as well as into the extraordinary architecture and acoustics of Hamburg's latest landmark.

The next highlight of the tour is the observation deck, the outdoor plaza. Enjoy the unique 360-degree panoramic view. You will not only discover the 'gateway to the world', the port of Hamburg from above and the more than 1,000-year-old old town of Hamburg, but also the largest inner-city construction project in Europe; HafenCity.

The one-hour Grand Harbor tour leads to the Container Terminal Tollerort and the largest shipyard in the Port of Hamburg. You will learn how ships can be lifted out of the water, why it's better to go with a certain skepticism about the fish market and what must be done to ensure that the port remains competitive in the future. At the end of the tour, you will return to the Elbphilharmonie. You'll get to experience HafenCity and, if the tide allows it, the Speicherstadt again from the waterside.
