The tour starts with a ride along the Alster river to the lake (Aussenalster)
We will ride downtown along the western shore of the lake, cross the busy center into the ultra modern new quarter „Hafencity“ with it’s architectonic landmarks.
At the southern tip, we will cross the river Elbe and enter the district „Veddel“ with it’s distinctive working class architcture from the turn of 19th century.
From Veddel, a nice biketrail brings us to Wilhelmsburg, where we explore the „Inselpark“ a former site of a large national garden expo.
We will have the chance to rest at a small lake and have a picnic there.
Then we will bike through the heart of hamburg harbour to the historic old „Elbtunnel“ with it’s large wooden elevator cabins and butyful tiles down in the tunnel tube.
The last part leads through lively districts „St. Pauli“, „Schanze“ and „Eimsbüttel“ back to Eppendorf.
The total mileage of this tour is aproximately 40 km (25 miles)
I can guide the tour with my slow regular bike, or with my e-bike – depending on the demands of the group.
We can expect the tour from 3 to 4 hours, also depending on the group’s demands in terms of intermissions e.g. for taking fotos or enjoying scenic views on the way…
Looking forward to show you around,
