Full description

Experience the dark side of Hamburg on a nighttime tour. When you think of Hamburg, who doesn't think of boisterous partying where night turns into day? But while the cheerful crowd indulges in the fun under colorful lights, something is happening in the shadows of the corners and alleys.

Witches, ghosts and demons have always felt just as comfortable in the Hanseatic city as the whimsical sailor and the pleasure-oriented tourist. And so Hamburg is not only a city of joie de vivre, but also of eerie, even gruesome places. On this tour, visit places where gruesome things are said to have happened – and where the aura of curses and disasters can still be felt today. If you want to get to know the abysses of Hamburg, follow this journey through the eerie side of Hamburg.

Our nice guide welcomed us very friendly and was very "humorous" the whole evening. He showed us places and told the right stories. It wasn't scary, but we saw places we'd never been before, even though they weren't far from the meeting point. At the end, bookmarks were distributed. Men a leprechaun and women a mermaid. It was fun anyway. Group was a bit big but you heard everything. Many Thanks

A nice tour through the Speicherstadt and a bit around it with interesting information, scary and exciting stories and great views. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, funny and friendly, answered questions, sometimes included a joke, showed and explained a lot and always paid attention to the whole group. It wasn't too long a tour, but it still contained a lot of things worth knowing and seeing.

Absolutely worth it. Not only breathtaking scenery - Speicherstadt at night - but also very likeable ghost guides. Some of the stories were hair-raising and a little bit disgusting, some fates from the Middle Ages made you excited, but you would always be entertained. Successful alternation between informative and excitingly entertaining. To be recommended again at any time.
