5 must-sees on any Hamburg walking tour

Hamburg is one of Germany's most engrossing cities, offering something for everyone. Whichever walking tour you book, be sure to catch these highlights!

Rathaus

Rathaus

Hamburg's City Hall is a masterpiece of neo-Renaissance architecture. If you don't have time to check out the inside, be sure to glimpse the glorious Hygieia fountain in its vast courtyard.

Historic churches

Historic churches

Hamburg's old churches have certainly suffered, you can still see the restored St. Michael's and ruins of St. Nicholas'. The latter was briefly the world's tallest building!

Elbe Philharmonic Hall

Elbe Philharmonic Hall

The Elbphilharmonie isn't scheduled to be finished until 2017, but it's already taking shape as one of the city's most striking modern monuments.

Speicherstadt

Speicherstadt

With its buildings raised on stilts, Hamburg's warehouse district is a sight in itself. You'll also find unique attractions like its famous coffee roastery and the Spice Museum.

Reeperbahn

Reeperbahn

Hamburg's red-light district is the world's largest, but there are also historic buildings and music venues amid all the debauchery. Still, don't bring the kids!

Planning Your Visit

How do the free tours work?

Free walking tours are perfect for those visiting on shoestring budgets or simply unsure how much to pay in advance. Perhaps unsurprisingly, there is a catch! Remember your guide does this for a living so bring some cash and pay what you think it was worth at the end. If you don't, make sure you can handle the guilt-trip!

How hard is it?

Hamburg walking tours can last up to five hours, but most are in the region of two to three hours. If that still seems like hard-going, why not choose a shorter, more specialized tour, perhaps around a certain district of your choice, or around themed landmarks - how about the venues where The Beatles played?

What people are saying about Hamburg

Great Tour! Perfect start for the night out

What a great evening! Great stories and a funny Guide. Perfect before exploring the “Reeperbahn” on our own. Thank you for the recommendations, we really had a good time! Greetings!

Elbphilharmonie with a knowlegeable guide

Jörg did a great job showing us the Elbphilharmanie. He knows his stuff and is fun at the same time. Would recommend his tour any time!

Informative about historical and architecture background

Our guide Sybille was awesome. She was so much motivated and had profound and detailed knowledge about HH Hafencity and the Elbphilharmonie. That went from history to architecture and social aspects of the area. I recommend the tour.

Elbphilharmonie, Speicherstadt & HafenCity Tour Reviewed by Alessandro, 30/07/2018

A really interesting tour with an excellent guide.

All concerts at the Elbphilharmonie were sold out so we opted for a guided tour in order to get a little taste of that magnificent building. It was great fun and very interesting, - our guide spoke excellent English and gave us an insight to the colourful history of the building. We went up to the plaza in beautiful weather and enjoyed the view. The area is stunning. I look even more forward to coming again to Hamburg and be sure to have booked tickets to a concert at the Elbphilharmonie.

a very interesting tour to get a good impression of the city center

Thank You Jonny for a very nice morning and informing us ubout the interesting history of Hamburg!
