Sightseeing Tours

City bus tour

In Hamburg, it is of course possible to take a wheelchair on a city bus tour and be comfortably chauffeured through the most beautiful city in the world; between St Michael’s Church (aka the ‘Michel’), the Speicherstadt and harbour, St Pauli, St Georg and Övelgönne.

A total of three bus companies operate accessible double-decker bus sightseeing tours to the most popular attractions on the Elbe and Alster. The buses are equipped with ramps and provide space for at least one wheelchair user downstairs. Information about joining a tour can be obtained directly from the respective bus company. Please book at least one day in advance and contact the providers if you have any questions.

Guided tours

You can get the most out of being in a foreign city by learning directly from someone who is already familiar with it. The experienced Tourist Guide Associations guides not only know the Hanseatic city like the back of their hands, but also tell many exciting background stories, have an extraordinary anecdote about almost every location and are always glad to share a few insider tips. Detailed information on dates and terms and conditions can be obtained directly from the respective providers: 

Private Guided Tours Through the "Schanze"

mobilWERK e.V. offers special insights into the Schanze district with its “SCHANZE ERFAHREN” (“Experience the Schanze”) tours. The non-profit organisation from Hamburg is committed to providing more accessibility and brings Hamburg visitors and Schanze experts together through this project as an alternative to package tourism. 

“SCHANZE ERFAHREN" is not a group tour but rather an individual, accessible tour that is sometimes led by tour guides who are in a wheelchair themselves. If you are interested, please register on the project website project 3-4 weeks in advance so that mobilWERK can find the right guide for each guest.
