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

Good Tour Guide, but disppointed with booking company.

We booked to go on the Tour and turned up about 2o minutes before the schuduled time. Other people arrived and we figured there was German speaking group and and English speaking group. The german gude arrived but no English Guide. At about 10 minutes after the start time I sent and email and then approach the German guide and to ask him what was happening. He phoned the booking company and got to speak to a girl. First she said we arrived too late and then changed her response that we booked too late. I said we booked two days ago, so she said it was canclled because there was not enough guests. But there were 7 people waiting. She that said we could do the tour the next day, but 5 of the 7 said they could not do so I asked her for a guarantee that it woul go ahead. So we turned up the next day and did the tour with just 3 guests. While the tour was good and informative the booking company is just plain shonky.

Fantastic Free Tour and Martin is the best tour guide ever!

I was in Hamburg with my parents for my mum’s birthday trip and we took part in the 2 hour German tour of Hamburg City and Speicherstadt led by Martin. I had researched this free walking tour in advance and hoped it would be good. As it turned out, it was not ‘just’ good, it was fantastic – in fact, it was the highlight of our weekend. Martin was very knowledgeable and truly a born storyteller. He brought the city’s history to life with his captivating anecdotes and wealth of insight and knowledge. He raised very interesting topics linking the past with the present and leaving the audience with food for thought on several issues. I cannot recommend Martin highly enough – best tour I have ever taken part in!

Great experience with exceptional guide!

Our group of 9 people took the St. Pauli tour at 23 o'clock on a Friday night. All of us were very excited, and I would definitely recommend. Our guide, Kai, was exceptional! He was truely a local and gave us an honest and very inspiring impression of the city. We ended up in an area full of bars perfect for continuing our night out. Thank you Kai, for a great experience!

Hennibg's Beatles enthusiasm was infectious.

We didn't know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Even though we booked a tour in English despite it being in German, this was not a problem, although this situation wouldn't suit everyone. It was down to Henning's great musical skill and his inclusivity that made it a memorable experience.

Great, cheap way to experience Reeperbahn nightlife!

The Reeperbahn nightlife is very extensive. The guide showed us some nice bars and clubs. The next day, we went back to a few of these clubs. Great recommendations, definitely worth the money! However, more could be done to mix the groups.
