Despite exploring Hamburg with a local (which I thoroughly enjoyed) the day before, I still wanted to know what makes the city so attractive to visitors that pour in the quintessential German port. So my favourite activity of travelling in a significant place came into force – A Walking Tour!
Signing up to the tried and tested Sandeman’s New Europe tours (see my posts on Elegant Edinburgh, Muchos Madrid and Lovely London), I was raring to go and explore the historical and cultural aspects of Hamburg. (And to parade my beautiful face around of course). Starting from the Raushaus (Or ‘The Rathouse’ as I called it much to the amusement of my German friend, Bente), We soon kicked off our THREE Hour walking tour. And it certainly flew by. Check out the pics below.
Sandeman New Europe Tours always has informative and local guides in their destinations.

The End of the Tour in Hamburg and my smile says it all!
Obviously, throughout the Walking Tour, we saw a lot of sights, heard fantastic stories, smelt wonderful Bratwurst and tasted German Beer. But I don’t want to spoil it for you by going into great detail about the tour. You just got to do it yourself.
Would I recommend it? Of course! The three hours flew by and you’re constantly amused by the tour guide who insists on being interactive with his group (beware of playing characters in his stories!). I would definitely use Sandeman New Europe Tours to gain a broad and hilarious understanding of the historical and cultural aspects of Hamburg.
Now, I need Beer. Stat.
