Book Tour

Our All Day Country tour starts with a pick up from your central Hamburg hotel. Then we will drive to two of the following three destinations (please choose two destinations):

Buxtehude

On the edges of the Altes Land region – an area of reclaimed marshland that’s now the biggest fruit garden in Europe ‒ amidst the blossoms of the region’s fruit trees, live the 40,000 residents of Buxtehude. Visitors to the town will be particularly interested in the historical Old Town, with its pedestrian malls, its system of dykes, its historical graveyard (known as Viver), and the town’s outer districts (or wards), which look out over the surrounding marshland. But don’t be fooled by the town’s fairytale charm; Buxtehude, which is over 1000 years old and appeared in the archives in 959, was the first German town to be planned around a harbor, which offered a secure port of call for ships sailing up and down the Elbe. The town, once a lively Hanseatic city, is well worth a visit today.

Continuing along the south bank of the Elbe, our SUV takes us to the fruit-growing region of Altes Land. Here, we admire the scenic landscape of Germany’s largest fruit-growing region with its bountiful apple and cherry orchards. We get an amazing panoramic view of Hamburg from the Köhlbrand Bridge

 

Lüneburg

A church with a twisted spire, buildings that leaning on each other and houses with swollen ‘beer-belly’ facades. In parts it looks as if the charming town of Lüneburg has drunk too much of the Pilsner lager it used to brew. Of course, the city’s wobbly angles and uneven pavements have a more prosaic cause. For centuries, until 1980, Lüneburg was a salt-mining town, and as the ‘white gold’ was extracted from the earth, shifting ground and subsidence caused many buildings to tilt sideways.

With its wobbly comic-book streets, its attractive stepped-gable facades and its magnificent Hanseatic architecture, Lüneburg is a lovely town to visit.

 

Lübeck

A 12th-century gem boasting more than 1000 historical buildings, Lübeck’s picture-book appearance is an enduring reminder of its role as one of the founding cities of the mighty Hanseatic League with its moniker the ‘Queen of the Hanse’.

Behind its landmark Holstentor (gate), you’ll find streets lined with medieval merchants’ homes and the spired churches that form Lübeck’s so-called crown.

Recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1987, this thriving provincial city has many enchanting corners to explore.

Bidding a fond farewell to Lübeck, we journey back to Hamburg passing other beautiful villages dotted around the gently rolling countryside.
