To allow all CHI attendees to get to know the beautiful city of Hamburg, we propose a self-organized city tour instead of having a single centralized event. We collected recommendations on what to see and visit during that time and prepared example routes for you to take during this evening. Attendees might connect to others before leaving to explore the city at the Explore Hamburg Info Point in the Foyer of CCH on Tuesday, April 25, from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.
For Tuesday evening, we recommend the following options to ensure that attendees can meet each other and explore Hamburg together. For all sites, it is strongly recommended that you book your tickets in advance.
Disclaimer: ACM CHI does not organize the visits nor cover any costs and is, therefore, not responsible for any events.

Cap San Diego
The Cap San Diego is the last surviving ship in a series of six fast general cargo freighters built in 1961/62 for the Hamburg-Süd shipping company and which sailed mainly to South America until the end of 1981. Her elegant silhouette is today part of Hamburg’s harbor panorama. The full-time and volunteer crew keep the Cap San Diego in good shape with great commitment. Since 2003, the museum ship has also been a maritime monument and floating hotel, which today has its berth at the Überseebrücke in Hamburg.
Tickets (ca. 10 Euro) can be purchased directly at the ship. Further information can be found here:
