City Tour by Red Double Decker
From US$21.37

Discover vibrant and historic Hamburg on this hop-on hop-off double-decker bus tour.  With your single-day pass, relax for the 90-minute full tour, or design an itinerary with 29 possible stops like St Michael Church, St Pauli Fish Market and the renowned Reeperbahn red-light district. Enjoy unobstructed views from the open-air viewing deck (weather permitting) and onboard commentary in English and German. Upgrade to add an hour-long harbor cruise!

What to Expect
With your 24-hour ticket, see the best of Hamburg by bus with onboard commentary offering snippets of local history in English and German. Hop aboard the bus at St Pauli port or at Central Station, and enjoy the flexibility of choosing your own schedule, pace and tour duration. 
Grab a comfortable seat in either the indoor or open-air seating section (weather dependent) and take in the sights along the full route (approximately 1.5 hours long). Sit through the entire loop, or hop off at any of the 29 stops (full itinerary listed below) to explore top city landmarks. Another bus will be along in 30 to 60 minutes (depending on the day and season) to pick you up. 
Soak up the prestige of Town Hall and get a dose of German expressionist architecture at the elaborate Chilehaus. Then tour the lively St. Pauli fish market — visited by some 70,000 people every Sunday! — and Hamburg’s famous Reeperbahn red-light district. For a glimpse of Hamburg’s maritime history, upgrade to include an hour-long cruise through the city harbor. You'll float by container ship terminals, the picturesque warehouse district and the eye-catching Elbphilharmonie concert hall. (Cruise runs from April to October only.)
Disembark at any stop along the route to end your tour. Easy!

Boat tour = ok, bus tour = poor

We bought a combo boat + bus tour from the ticket desk on the harbour. They seem to have only 1 boat tour in English per day, so we didn't have any choice for the time: 12 o'clock. We walked around town a bit before...More

Not impressive

It is actually not a hop on hop off. Barring the port stop it is very difficult to get off. English commentary (recorded) is available on alternate bus only. There is live commentary on all buses in German language only. There are other options available...More

Hop on but don’t get off....

This was a cruise port stop so we wanted to get a quick overview and stop when we wanted to get off. Unfortunately, the bus did not stop very frequently until it took a break at the harbor cruise stop. We did get off to...More

Not Really Hop On - Hop Off

We took the red double decker hop on hop off to get a good taste of Hamburg while we were visiting there. The tour advertised a large number of stops that you could hop off at and then return with the next bus. Our bus...More

We did not find this tour very informative. Hamburg, to its credit, has a lot of trees and we found all too often that we could not see featured buildings through the trees. Our main grumble was about the oft repeated encouragement to hop on...More

No they did not. We took the shuttle bus provided by our ship into town and the shuttle dropped you and picked you up at the town center. The hop on hop off bus was right there. Personally I wouldn't bother, I didn't find it... More
