Silversea Luxury Cruises À HAMBURG

HAMBURG
HAMBURG

A true city of water, effortlessly cool Hamburg is an outward-looking city, with a unique flow of its own. Nestled snugly between the Baltic and North seas, Germany's second-biggest city is intersected by a frayed network of rivers and canals, spanned by hundreds of pretty bridges. The comparisons are obvious - but Hamburg's reputation as the 'Venice of the North' is a little wide of the mark. View more

This quirky, heritage-filled city has a distinct character and open outlook all of its own, and continues to relish its role as Germany's gateway to the world. The water brought Hamburg its wealth, and vast redbrick warehouses stack up against the waterfront in the Speicherstadt district - now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They linger from the era when the city was a Hanseatic League trading capital and the warehouses essentially formed a city unto themselves, with goods brought and exchanged from distant shores. Elsewhere, the Reeperbahn is a notorious and unabashed street of nocturnal mischief, with shifty neon-lit nightclubs, in amongst the city's famous red-light district. Hamburg has a much more wholesome side too, however, and is a powerhouse of museums, theatre and culture. It’s littered with over 100 music venues and the city played a crucial role in The Beatles’ early story. The spectacular Elbphilharmonie concert hall, with its wavy, surrealistic interior, is a work of art in and of itself. The city has been named a European Green Capital, and the vast Lake Alster adds to the airy, pleasant atmosphere, providing a spacious oasis of tranquillity. Planten un Blomen is another burst of zesty colour, where fountains fan out, and lilypads float on rhododendron-lined lakes.

Conditions in the camp were so bad that inmates struggled for survival and many died of diseases.

From the time Bergen-Belsen Camp was taken over by the SS until its liberation by British forces in early 1945, over 70,000 POW's, Jews and other "political enemies" of the regime died in this camp, mostly due to the hard-living conditions, lack of food, diseases and at the hand of the guards. Despite Bergen-Belsen not having been a termination camp like Auschwitz, the number of victims of the atrocities is staggering and among them the deported German-Dutch Jews Anne and Margot Frank died in this camp shortly before the camp was liberated by the Allied forces.

Lübeck – UNESCO World Heritage Site

Once known as the "Queen of the Hanseatic League", the Free Imperial and Hanseatic City of Luebeck is steeped in history and tradition. Luebeck is a city, which is simply beautiful. The old town on its oval island is one of the most impressive intact examples of medieval Gothic architecture. Luebeck's proud old patrician houses and redbrick churches are now included on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list.

Drive approx. 75 minutes to Luebeck along one of Hamburg's popular Autobahn.


Lübeck Walking Tour, St Mary's Church, Town Hall

On arrival in this beautiful old island town, surrounded by the river Trave and a channel, proceed on a historical walk of the Old City. Enjoy the medieval ambiance of the "Altstadt" (old city) with its well-known Holsten Gate, the landmark of Luebeck and one of the few relics of the city fortress. Pass by the majestic St. Marien Church, which represents an example for many redbrick churches along the Baltic Sea and admire the Gothic "Rathaus" (city hall) known to be one of the oldest in Germany. During your walk you will notice that the redbrick Gothic architecture still dominates the old town today, one is one of the first old age homes in Germany, the "Heiligen-Geist-Hospital" which you will visit inside.


Hanseatic Alleyways

Another attraction that your guide will explore with you, is one or two of the most impressive of the 82 "Wohngaenge" (Alleyways). Similar to other big cities in the late Middle Ages, Luebeck had its share of day-laborer who mostly lived in small houses, usually called "Buden" (huts), which were crowded together on corner lots, behind town houses or in the yards surrounded by residential blocks. The inconspicuously located living areas were called "Gaenge" (passageways). The merchants, the middle class and the church were quick to realize the fountain of wealth that a house with a built-up yard represented and unavoidable trade with the tiny residential passageways with exorbitant rents took on astonishing forms. It was left up to the landlord just how many families he would squeeze into the tiny flats, and how many Buden he would have built behind his house. In the 15th Century, the general population grew and the number of residents in Luebeck increased by about a quarter, which lead to the construction of more passage quarters. There were more than 180 passageways in Luebeck at the close of the 17th century.


Traditional German Pub Lunch and Free Time

After the city walk, enjoy a tasty traditional German lunch in one of Luebeck' s lovely restaurants, followed by some time at leisure during which you may explore Luebeck on your own.


Niederegger Marzipan

What would a visit to Luebeck be, without having tasted some famous Luebeck Marzipan ?

After your time at leisure meet your guide again and visit the Niederegger Café, an institution in Luebeck and famous for its delicious marzipan. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea along with a piece of Niedereggers celebrated marzipan-nut gateaux.

The city, rich in tradition, has an over 1,000-year old history, which is closely connected with salt, the "white gold" of the Middle Ages.
