What To Expect
Discover the highlights of Hamburg by double-decker bus and boat with a hop-on hop-off sightseeing pass! To start your land adventure, head to St Pauli port or Central Station and hop on the bus. Grab a comfortable seat, relax and enjoy the flexibility of determining you own itinerary and pace.
You'll have the option to ride the entire 90-minute loop or disembark at any of the 28 stops (full itinerary listed below) to explore top city landmarks like Town Hall, the German expressionist Chilehaus, St. Pauli fish market and Hamburg’s famous Reeperbahn red-light district. Bonus: Head to a 17th century teahouse in the historic Krameramt district (St Michael Church stop) for a complimentary cup of tea!
For a glimpse of Hamburg’s maritime history, hop off at St Pauli port and transfer to a harbor cruise boat. (Cruise runs from April to October only.) Along the 60-minute roundtrip cruise, enjoy commentary in German and English about the rich history of Hamburg’s international trade. Catch impressive views of the city’s key harbor-side landmarks such as Harbor City, the picturesque warehouse district and the eye-catching Elbphilharmonie concert hall.
Enrich the day by adding on another leisurely cruise through Lake Alster. Ride the sightseeing bus to Jungfernstieg Passage, where your lake float begins. Settle in for an hour of panoramic sightseeing, listen to an interesting audio tour, and snap photos of Hamburg’s lovely lakeside neighborhoods.
To end your tour, simple disembark at any of the stops. Easy!
Note: Your single-day ticket offers the option of splitting up your tour across three separate (consecutive) days. Each leg may only be taken once.
