Itinerary for your Pre-Programme:

Day 1:   arrival to Hamburg

Welcome to Hamburg and spend a night in one of the city’s most famous hotels: The Westin Hamburg.

The Westin Hotel Hamburg is located in the heart of the exciting hustle and bustle of the port. Here you can stroll along the promenade with a view of Germany’s largest seaport, which is in 18th place on the list of the most important international container ports.

The Westin Hamburg extends over 21 floors with floor-to-ceiling windows that boast panoramic views of the city and port. The hotel features 205 guestrooms and 39 suites. Guests can expect an array of Westin services and amenities, including the Heavenly® Bed and Heavenly® Bath. The hotel features distinct culinary options serving both international and local cuisines, alongside delicious SuperFoodsRx™ menus. The Saffron restaurant delivers a sophisticated fine-dining experience with Hanseatic influences in the surroundings of the Kaispeicher warehouse building. Overlooking the city’s HafenCity district and its waterways, on the eighth-floor The Bridge Bar provides a social space for guests and visitors to enjoy cocktails and refreshments. Additionally, the bustling Plaza Foyer serves an all-day refreshment option. Spread over 1,300 square meters, the Elb Spa includes a Westin WORKOUT® studio, a 20-meter indoor pool, six therapy rooms and a range of thermal facilities.

The day is on your own to explore Hamburg in your individual pace. Marvel the port life from the water and take a look behind the scenes with a harbor cruise. Sail through the many locks and canals, past ship docks and container ships. The talkative skippers will be happy to tell you a tall tale or two. You can also experience history at close quarters in the many anchored museum boats such as the Rickmer Rickmers, the Cap San Diego or the U-434, the largest hunting and espionage submarine in the world (located at the landing bridges in St. Pauli).
