We will travel to the location in typical Hamburg style on a boat having enjoyed a trip through the harbour. Having passed large harbour cranes and the impressive concert hall, Elbphilharmonie, the boat trip will end at the Hauptzollamt where tea, spices, coffee and tobacco from all over the world used to be cleared through customs. Nowadays we enjoy its impressive red brick architecture with its modern glass front, directly on the waterside.
