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.

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.

Hamburg is a pretty boring place. We took the Harbour cruise which was only available in German. The Lake Alster cruise was also in German. We sat there feeling so bored. The hop on hop off tour did have other language available, but probably only 30 of what they talked in local language, while half of the time music only. I guess this what they can do best in Hamburg, not much alternatives. Don't think I will ever return to Hamburg.

Don't stop at all stops, live narration is in German

The bus does not stop at all stops automatically, and there's not enough time to request a stop if you are on the top. Despite having automated narration in different languages, you cannot hear over the live German narration. Do not recommend this option.

You need to make sure your bus has the earphone listening system,our 1st bus didnt and it was really hard to gather information, however the buses with earphones were so much better thoroughly enjoyed it then. Harbour cruise we did on the Louisiana paddle boat very nice boat, we stood on deck so therefore couldnt really hear the commentary but have to say I still enjoyed it, it goes right into the heart of the working docks and right besides the huge container ships. The lake Alster cruise, well what can I say ...... beautiful scenery, however, a massive let down that not a word of English was spoken!! Didnt even try to communicate with us this absolutely ruined it for us as we went on it to get information about the surroundings ....... so big disappointment! We felt very out of place especially when others are laughing and youre just sat there is not a pleasant experience.

We were in Hamburg 4-6 Jul, prior to the G20 meeting was kicking off which was poor planning on our part. When we arrived at the bus to exchange our 2 day ticket we were informed that the bus would operate on a limited basis on 5 Jul with the last one leaving at 2-2:30pm. They would alter the route without notice during the day and the 2nd day 6 Jul was in complete question due to increased police presence and road closures. We did experience route changes on the 5th as the bus just did not show up at the designated spot. We also experience either a very late start or no operations on the 6th from the central station stop...our boarding point. The other Hop-On Hop-Off operators did not seem to run into the same operational problems and ran more of their published schedule. We would not do this tour again!

What a great city Hamburg is? We were so happy we had purchased the Essential Hamburg Combo as each section was thoroughly enjoyable and we were able to see this on each section as they were completely different and gave us some idea of what a great place Hamburg is.

The city tour was very interesting and enjoyable. The bus route was well marked and very convenient to our hotel. When we arrived at the Alster boat ride we were informed the bus driver did not provide us with the additional tickets required to board the boat ride. We felt cheated since the tickets would have been cheaper without the cruise included.
