Map & timetable

The interactive map gives you the perfect overview and is also available offline.

There's no way around the map - it is the heart of the app, so to speak. Many functions are based on the interesting points (POI - Points of Interest) that are marked on the map. You can select specific categories to display and see at a glance what's nearby. With just one click you can get extensive information. And vice versa, for every restaurant, museum or highlight, you can open the map and see the route there by foot. 17 zoom levels ensure the right overview for every situation. After you download the map, it is also available offline. This lets you find the right route even without internet reception and saves you large data volumes or roaming fees.

Ship finder

Whether you are interested in ocean liners or huge container ships, there's always something going on in the Hamburg harbour. With the ship finder, you can easily keep everything in view.

24/7, 365 days a year: As Germany's largest harbour and the number two in Europe, work goes on here every day round the clock. The ship finder shows you exactly which ships are arriving or getting ready to leave. You can find out information about every ship: in addition to its name, flag and type, you can find out interesting details like its destination and arrival time, speed, course and all data from the bow to the stern. The positions are updated every 60 seconds so that nothing escapes you.

Additional Highlights

Audio Guides

The audio guides have exciting background information on the most important Hamburg sights – take a listen!

How did the legendary “Große Freiheit” – Great Freedom – get its name? What are mountain goats doing in Blankenese? How many stairs lead up to the Michel tower? What can you see in Planten un Blomen? The Audio Guides will surprise you with many interesting stories and much information – and every item packed into approximately 2 minutes. Whether you’re at home on the sofa and want some inspiration, or at the sight itself and want to let the atmosphere take effect – it’s entirely up to you. After download, you have access to these contributions at any time. You’ll be amazed at what you hear about Hamburg!


What would you like to discover in Hamburg: Culture, architecture, maritime or simply the highlights? Get a guide and take a tour!

Whether it’s an exciting exploration of the Speicherstadt and HafenCity, a relaxed family trip to the Elbe beach or a legendary pub crawl on the Reeperbahn – our thematic tours show you new ways through the Hanseatic City. In addition to the well-known highlights, there are many insider tips to discover that you get to on foot, with public transportation or by bicycle. The speed you set is your own. In the case of other tours, different items can be combined at will, each of which is very ‘sight-worthy’.

Wat nu?

‘Wat nu’ – what now – is what we in the North love to say, when we don’t quite know what to do next. But spontaneity is often worth its weight in gold

What do you want to do and how much time do you have? We don’t need to know anything else to make you suitable suggestions. Do you want to pop into the closest museum, relax in a park, go to a corner restaurant or take a spontaneous window-shopping trip? We show you the best nearby options. Don’t worry – we won’t suggest an outdoor swimming pool in November, if you’re eager to go out. Some things are only fun during the suitable weather – and in this regard, we know our way around perfectly. The beautiful park, in contrast, is well worth a visit in winter, although you might not want to take your picnic blanket.
