Private Tour: Speicherstadt and HafenCity Walking Tour in Hamburg
Explore two unique Hamburg districts with a private guide on this 2-hour walking tour of Speicherstadt and HafenCity. Considered the largest warehouse district in the world, Speicherstadt is home to coffeehouses, spice shops and carpet stores galore. After exploring this historic waterfront area, stroll to the modern HafenCity quarter to admire luxury yachts in the harbor and witness one of the largest rebuilding projects in Europe. Your private guide will provide expert commentary, customized to your interests, about these interesting Hamburg areas along the way.

Meet your private guide at Baumwall Station in the Speicherstadt district, which snakes along the waterways of the Hamburg port. Built as a free zone to transfer goods without paying customs, this old trading area grew rapidly throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, buying and selling everything from carpets to coffee from overseas. Today, Speicherstadt is considered the largest warehouse district in the world.

Enjoy informative commentary from your guide as you walk through the area and pop into interesting local shops. As you walk, ask your guide as many questions about the city and its neighborhoods as you wish; the beauty of a private guide is that the commentary is tailored to your interests.

Sample exotic spices in quirky shops, visit a traditional oriental carpet store and upgrade (if you wish) to visit the Kaffee-Roesterei coffeehouse to try some of the world\'s most expensive and sought-after coffee varieties, such as Kopi Luwak or Panama Esmerelda. A snack is also provided with this upgrade option.

After getting to know the warehouse district, make your way to HafenCity, located on an island in the Elbe River. Here old port warehouses are replaced with ultra-modern offices, hotels, shops and residential areas. The scope of this redevelopment is staggering ? in fact, it\'s the largest rebuilding project in Europe.

Next, visit the district?s enormous harbor, where some of the world\'s largest yachts have been spotted. Soak up the views along the Elbe River before strolling back to Baumwall station to conclude your tour.
