Discover 47 years of Tatort history in Hamburg at the top shooting locations in the Hanseatic city.
The tour starts at Hamburg’s central station. Find a special bank on one of the platforms, on which a true Tatort inspector once sat. Continue to the Town Hall, which had a role as supporting act in many Tatort films, but which is most famous for the dramatic scene with Cenk Batu.
Walk through the historic city center of Hamburg’s Old Town and head to an explosive shooting location at the Hotel Renaissance and further to the Alsterpavillion, which is very beautifully located at the Binnenalster. The amazing view is not only valued by pedestrians, also a Tatort inspector chose this café as a place to relax.
Continue through the Speersort, the place of origin of the city and a famous route for chases, and head to the UNESCO World Heritage – the Speicherstadt. Throughout the decades, this district has been a major location for inspectors to go after suspects.
Your next destination is the HafenCity, the largest urban development project in Europe and shooting location in almost every Tatort film with Nick Tschiller and therefore an important sight for Tatort fans. Find out from where you were able to see Helene Fischer, when she disappeared into the dark recesses of human trafficking against the backdrop of the famous Elbe Philharmonic Hall.
Relax for a bit and visit the favorite fishing spot of the inspectors Stöver and Brockmüller. Which investigation team chased a suspect in the underground from the station Baumwall? Find out yourself and hop on the train, to find traces of the Tatort at the Landungsbrücken in St. Pauli.
The complex from the early 19th century provided the setting for many film shootings and provides a large variety of backdrops – ranging from Dock 17 to the viewing platform high above the Landungsbrücken and the Old Elbe Tunnel. With a length of almost 430 meters, the Old Elbe Tunnel is the perfect location for a fast-paced chase.
Go up the former Hamburger Berg, which has been known as the district St. Pauli for 190 years now. This is a prime location for crooks and pimps and therefore also for Tatort inspectors. Throughout the decades, almost all inspector teams investigated here, searched for traces and delved into the red light district.
See the famous Herbertstraße and arrive at the Davidwache for a search for traces high up. The exclusive St. Pauli experience loft invites you to get to know the red light district and relax. Enjoy two drinks here, one of which is named after a clear motive for a crime.
After a refreshment, visit two popular pubs, which are often used as shooting locations. Visit the pub Silbersack and continue across the Reeperbahn to the pub called Ritze, which you can recognize by the spreaded legs at the door. Imagine how the Tatort inspectors open the door and disappear into the smoky insides of the pub. Conclude your tour at the Große Freiheit, where many Tatort films begin.
