Bike Tours: Hamburg In Northern Germany (4K)

Two wheels, one goal: exploring Hamburg from a cycling perspective. Rather than exploring Hamburg through a city walk, Amélie’s mission on a sunny day in Hamburg is to bike through the urban jungle as well as through the green parts of the city. Amélie starts at the Fischmarkt in the Rad Race Shop and crosses the Elbtunnel, which connects the centre of Hamburg with the docks and shipyards on the south side of the Elbe.

Video timeline: 00:00 Fischmarkt | Rad Race Shop 03:44 Elbtunnel 08:33 Landungsbrücken 11:34 Elbphilharmonie 12:37 Hafencity 18:22 Speicherstadt 25:41 Hamburger Rathaus 28:16 Jungfernstieg 40:14 Planten un Blomen 49:06 Reeperbahn

Out of the lift of the Elbtunnel, the route continues via the Landungsbrücken to the Elbphilharmonie. From there, via the Speicherstadt to Hamburg City Hall. After the Jungfernstieg, the tour continues along the green side of Hamburg through the Old Botanical Garden and Planten un Blomen.

Via the Reeperbahn, we return to the Rad Race Shop for Amélie to enjoy a cup of coffee.
