GUIDED TOUR

The Domplatz, the cathedral square in the heart of Hamburg, is a place with a very special history. Since time immemorial, the location of the legendary “Hammaburg”, nucleus and name giver of the city of Hamburg, has been suspected here. Just a few meters from the Domplatz is the Bischofsturm – the bishop’s tower – the oldest surviving stone building in Hamburg’s old town. The Bischofsturm at the Domplatz is one of Hamburg’s most important architectural monuments: the ring-shaped tower foundation with a diameter of 19 meters from the 12th century is the oldest surviving stone building in Hamburg’s old town. Why the tower is named after a bishop and what function this mighty foundation had, of this the participants learn during a guided tour into the early days of Hamburg, which is hidden under the streets, houses and squares of the old town.
