Hamburg Welcome Portal – Hamburg Welcome Tour

Note: This event is fully booked. There are no more tickets available.

Founded in 1908, the Hamburg Museum is one of the largest city-historical museums in Europe today. During our guided “highlight tour” in English language, we will be presented with vivid themes and anecdotes of the city’s development, as well as the port of Hamburg on the way to the “Gate to the World”. We also learn interesting stories about the everyday life and the culture of Hamburg’s citizens in their time.

Subsequently we will visit the current special exhibition “No Beer without the Alster Lake – Hamburg, the brewery of the Hanseatic League”. Beer-brewing and the evolution of the city of Hamburg are inextricably linked. In the Middle Ages, beer was considered a staple food, the so-called “liquid bread”. Around 1540 Hamburg already had 527 breweries, one for every 16 citizens!

In the museum café “Fees” we have the opportunity to end the afternoon (as self-payers) in a round of talks, as well as experiencing further individual research in the museum until 05:00 p.m.
