Guides in Hamburg

No matter if you're here for the weekend or a longer period of time, it always comes in handy to have somebody to show you around. In a city like Hamburg, with its abundance of highlights, there is always the chance to miss out on fascinating spots if you try to explore it all by yourself. Numerous different providers offer tours that cover a wide range of topics.

Many tours will lead you through the Reeperbahn area (English language tours on Fri and Sat) and focus on the red-light district. There are the historical prostitutes tour, the one-hour express tour, as well as tours hosted by celebrity drag queen Olivia Jones or comedian Tina. An English language nightwatch tour through St. Pauli can be booked for groups.

The city tour, as well as the welcome to Hamburg tour give you an overview of the major sights. The Störtebeker tour, named after the famous medieval pirate, focuses on historical aspects of the city. If you feel less-inclined to walk all day, there are the red double-decker busses that take you on a hop-on hop-off 'Stadtrundfahrt' (city tour) or along the banks of the Elbe river, all the way out to Blankenese and Altes Land. And finally, for sports lovers, there is the possibility to go on a guided tour through the HSV and St. Pauli football stadiums.

Lat but not least, there is the opportunity to hire your guide to show your group around in a district of your choice.
