HafenCity by bike


HafenCity – Hamburg’s most modern district, which stretches along the Elbe. Here you will find architectural masterpieces, modern residential buildings and the impressive Marco Polo Tower. Enjoy the view of the water and the impressive skyline as you cycle through the alleys.


Continue to Speicherstadt, the world's largest warehouse complex characterized by historic brickwork. Explore the narrow canals and characteristic red brick houses. Don't forget to take a trip to the famous Miniatur Wunderland, where you can discover a fascinating miniature world.

Landungsbrücken and the old Elbe tunnel

The landing stages promise a harbor feeling and lots of action. Many harbor tours start from here if you want to get to know Hamburg from the water side. We definitely recommend the trip through the old Elbe tunnel.
After taking one of the old elevators down into the old Elbe tunnel, traverse the 426 meter long tunnel that runs under the Elbe and takes you to the other side of the river. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the St. Pauli skyline and the ships passing by.


Jungfernstieg – A place to relax On your way back to the city center you cycle along the Jungfernstieg. Here you can take a break and enjoy the view of the Inner Alster. With its elegant shops, restaurants and cafés, Jungfernstieg is a perfect place to enjoy a little refreshment and soak up the atmosphere of Hamburg.

With every pedal stroke you discover Hamburg in a very special way. From modern architecture to historic landmarks to breathtaking views, this 3-4 hour bike tour offers a variety of views you won't want to miss.

Remember that there are many other highlights in Hamburg that you can explore on your bike tour. The Elbphilharmonie, the fish market and the St. Michaelis Church are just a few examples.
