The authentic Free Walking Tour in Hamburg

Get to know the most beautiful city in the world without overstretching yourself financially

Free Walking Tour Hamburg means: We are the only local city guides who offer free walking tours without additional advertising, hidden sales intentions or forced stops. Sounds mean, but it islike that! In fact, free walking tours are often associated with promoting other products during the tour or enticing people to consume something not previously planned. This is unattractive and we keep our tours free of this. Please do not confuse this with the fact that we give recommendations on our tour. However, these are always declared as such and are in no way obligatory.

Exception

Our other tours might be mentioned in the guide, but always only as additional information. It is important to us to highlight this as there are unfortunately many tour providers who see this point differently and we want to clearly distance ourselves from these practices. Enough about that:

Welcome to the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Book your tour now!

Tour 1

How It All Began

On the Free Walking Tour A you will show how and when Hamburg came into being. Hamburg started modestly once. A small village came into being in the middle of the eighth century, grew into a city and lost its modesty. Well, in the beginning our city was also called “Hammaburg” or in Latin “Hammonia”. This term is still used today by many companies to indicate that they are regional companies. “Hammonia” is also at the same time the patron saint of the city of Hamburg, the goddess of seafaring and trade.

Finally, to top it off, Hammonia is also the title of our anthem. Hamburg is one of the few cities in the world that has its own anthem. Come to know and feel our city!

…and on we go

When everything lay in ruins

This free walking tour takes you from today’s town hall to the old town hall to St. Nikolai Church and ends at Hopfenmarkt. There are actually only a few hidden corners where you can still see the effects of the firestorm. If you disregard the, but quite large and visible from afar St. Nicholas Church and exactly why it was not restored like the other main churches of the city, but should also in the future always remind of the cruel time of the Second World War. However, today it is no longer a main church.

The center

All the churches in the inner city now have only a few parishioners, since Hamburg’s inner city is not densely populated. Hamburgers also like to call the city center “Centrum” on street signs. That’s right, with a “C” and not a “Z.” Simply to show that we are special.

Start: 11:00 AM

Tour 2

Cruising the harbor by boat

One stop through the port of Hamburg – but that only works if there is enough space. So you won’t see almost the entire port of Hamburg, but you will at least get a glimpse of it. With many details and background information, facts and tales, interesting information and sailor’s yarn.

After that, we then go to the St. Pauli district, learn about its history of origin and then stroll along the Reepebahn, just not at half past midnight. In addition to the numerous clubs, bars, gambling casinos and everything else that this district has to offer, we will of course also talk about the Beatles, who had their first moments in this corner of Hamburg that is craving for attention. But first we take the ferry:

The ferry line 62

This ferry of line 62 is a means of public transport and best suited to get to know the port. The ferry then takes longer for the outward journey to Finkenwerder and less for the return journey to the landing bridges number 3 or vice versa. It depends on whether there is up or down water. No sailor’s yarn, but the pure truth in the port of Hamburg.

It is a tidal port

This type of port therefore feels the ebb and flow of the tide. Whether it is a seaport (ships from overseas arrive here) or an inland port (it is located on the Elbe River) is debatable. It is indisputable that one must have passed through the port.
