Danish Altona Tour

  • Duration: 2 hours
  • Price: 200 € / group
  • Max. 35 persons
  • Meeting Point: Ottensen Hauptstraße


Altona was once the second largest city in the Danish Empire and had been a nuisance for Hamburg ever since it had been established. Altonas harbour rivaled that of Hamburg and the two cities were constantly in competition for trade. In an ideal world the Hamburg merchants would have preferred the Danes build their harbour somewhere else entirely  because the Danish city was literally "al-to-na" or better said "all too near"!

Join us on a journey back in time to explore the traces the Danes have left in Altona as well as exploring one of the citys most vibrant districts. With scenic views over the water, many parks, historical buildings and small cafes, bars and restaurants this is the ideal tour for those wishing to see a less touristic side of town.

  • Altona
