A harbour tour is a good way of getting a seaboard view of the city. The Stattreisen barge tour lasts about two hours, and takes you to the Port of Hamburg, the Speicherstadt, and HafenCity, the largest urban renovation project in Europe. The tour includes views of the architecture in the harbour, with buildings such as the Dockland Office Building by BRT Architekten, with its 140 steps leading upwards to the public viewing platform on the rooftop. Prices from €24.
