Hamburg Hop-on Hop-off Tour - Red Double Decker

With your 24-hour ticket, see the best of Hamburg by bus with onboard commentary offering snippets of local history in English and German. Hop aboard the bus at St Pauli port or at Central Station, and enjoy the flexibility of choosing your own schedule, pace and tour duration. 

Grab a comfortable seat in either the indoor or open-air seating section (weather dependent) and take in the sights along the full route (approximately 1.5 hours long). Sit through the entire loop, or hop off at any of the 28 stops (full itinerary listed below) to explore top city landmarks. Another bus will be along in 30 to 60 minutes (depending on the day and season) to pick you up. 

Soak up the prestige of Town Hall and get a dose of German expressionist architecture at the elaborate Chilehaus. Then tour the lively St. Pauli fish market — visited by some 70,000 people every Sunday! — and Hamburg’s famous Reeperbahn red-light district. For a glimpse of Hamburg’s maritime history, upgrade to include an hour-long cruise through the city harbor. You'll float by container ship terminals, the picturesque warehouse district and the eye-catching Elbphilharmonie concert hall. (Cruise runs from April to October only.)

Disembark at any stop along the route to end your tour. Easy!

The buses were clean and the stops were very convenient to key places around the city. We had tickets to Miniatur Wunderland and the stop was right around the corner. Great way to see the city.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

bus stop three blocks from our Hotel. It was one of the best tours as far as getting a good look at the city. The included harbor cruise of our purchase was outstanding. We took the English version and the narrator was outstanding as to his knowledge of the Harbor and the volume of construction taking place in the area
. Truly recommend it.

It was really really great. All the city tour bus drivers are really kind. And they know the booking papers. We just got on the bus. It was really easy to see on the second front with baby.

This hop on hop off city tour was very convenient and allowed me to see the city. I would and have recommended the tour to others traveling in Hamburg.

Its better with tour guides, but some guides lack in explaining the facts in the English language. Its also difficult for the guide to explain the facts in 2 different languages because you have driven by the historical site or place to see. (not enough time for them to talk) I have experienced bus tours with headphones (pre-recorded information) in a variety of languages. I really enjoyed the tour of Hamburg, the guides were very helpful and cordial. Thanks sincerely, Brian

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable about Hamburg, He alternated between English and German very well, Since it was raining and cold, I stayed on the bus for two times around. The tour would be even nicer in warmer months when the top and windows are down,
