Very nice views of the warehouse district, the museum harbour, the skyline of the city with the new buildings, part of the drydocks.... very enjoyable One minus point: the explanation was very hard to understand and often incomplete.

A must in Hamburg. Would have been great with more language options. We know enough German to understand that the guide was quite funny.
