Hamburg City Tour

Experience Hamburg's hot spots live with certified guides and explore Hamburg on your own. The traditional red buses run every day from 7.30am to 5.00pm.

The tour normally starts from landing stages 1 – 2 and from Central Station/ Kirchenallee and lasts approx. 1 hour and 35 minutes.

You can choose whether to start or finish the city tour at any of the 27 stops. With the day ticket visitors to Hamburg can use the city tour all day and get on, get off or change at their favourite sights in order to discover Hamburg in a completely individual way.

There is a lot to see: the pulsating HafenCity, the traditional Speicherstadt, the steamy Reeperbahn, the Alster, St. Michaelis church, the city centre, the beautiful Town Hall or Jungfernstieg, and of course the gateway to the world - the Port of Hamburg. Extra tours such as Rund um den Hafen (Around the Harbour), Lichterfahrt (Illuminations Tour) and the Elbufertour (Elbe Riverbank Tour) are also in the programme and also offer exciting aspects for the Hamburg connoisseur.

If you want to explore all of Hamburg you have to take to the water! This is why the red double-deckers offer combined tours. Simply buy the combined ticket online, by telephone, directly on any of the 12 buses or at the red double-deckers' kiosk at Landungsbrücken 1 – 2, which not only includes a day ticket for the Hop On - Hop Off Tour but also a one-hour harbour tour. Or you can buy the Discovery Ticket, which combines the city and harbour tour with an Alster boat trip.

Everyone knows the "Hamburg" buses and the irresistible charm of the classic MAN SD 200 double-deckers which have characterised the image of Hamburg for the last two decades. That is why it was very important to adapt these giant old buses to make then technically and above all environmentally sustainable. The work is already in full swing and the first re-motorised double-deckers are already running through Hamburg. Powered by new Mercedes Benz engines, the buses are now compliant with the latest environmental standard Euro 5 norm plus EEV, which means that these RED favourites are truly GREEN on the inside.
