The tour Perlenkette begins at Fischmarkt and leads us along the river Elbe to Neumühlen. You will see that Hamburg is turning her face back towards the river again. The almost six-kilometer riverbank,the so-called “String of Pearls”, has been planned and developed gradually, selectively, relating to differing topographies, and the historical structure of the city plan. During the tour we will see the various segments which combine to make up the string of pearls.

Alongside the Stilwerk sits the Stadtlager, the Greenpeace headquarter building and the new Holzhafen a further destination on our tour. Our route takes us past the new ferry terminal by the office complex “Elbpfeil”, and the  Elbberg campus, onwards to new office developments in Neumühlen, and to the Augustinium, a nursing home, which occupies a former cool store site.
