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

It was a very nice guide, who had a good loud voice and had many stories to tell about the creation and construction of the Elbphilharmonie. Although our location was next to a stand with a very loud music, the man had a very good voice.it was very exciting and entertaining and was fun.thank you very much

Very fun 2hrs walk through St. Pauli with a true local. Interesting facts and figures, lots of insider knowledge presented in a very respectful way. You always feel safe and Stefan openly answered all questions, even the ones nobody dared to ask.

Eine coole Führung mit vielen Geschichten und interessanten Fakten. Das Essen war auch lecker und abwechslungsreich. Für den Preis ist es allerdings etwas wenig.. Christian macht seinen Job aber wirklich gut!

Ein sehr netter und kompetenter Tour-Führer. Wir haben die Zeit genossen und viele Informationen bekommen. Sehr empfehlenswert. Lieben Dank.
