Private Tour of Hamburg by Private Vehicle
- Hamburg City Hall (Rathaus): This impressive building, completed in 1897, is the seat of Hamburg government. It took almost 44 years to build after the old city hall was destroyed in a fire in 1842. It has 647 rooms, six more than Buckingham Palace.
- Fish Market and St. Pauli: See the traditional farmers' market in front of the former fish auction hall. Drive through St. Pauli, a rambunctious neighborhood on the right bank of the Elbe River. This is where you'll find Reeperbahn, the infamous red light district, an area known as "the most sinful mile."
- Harbor Bridge and Speicherstadt: See the remarkable architecture of the Kohlbrand Bridge and the largest warehouse district in the world where buildings stand on oak log foundations.
- Convenient pick-up and drop-off: Your tour begins and ends in style. A driver will pick you up at your hotel at the beginning of the tour and then bring you back to your hotel or any other point of your choosing in the city center of Hamburg.
- Totally Private: Hey we love group tours. But we know sometimes you want to explore with just your friends and family. Customized to fit your whole crew - just let us know if you want to invite more peeps.
About This Hamburg Tour
Say "hallo" to handsome Hamburg. Founded in the 9th century as a mission settlement to convert the Saxons, Germany's second-largest city is great fun to explore. On this private GoBe tour, a knowledgeable local expert will accompany you around in comfort in a luxury sedan or van. In just a few hours, you'll go from newbie to honorary local as you're driven by this port city's best-known sites and through its most interesting neighborhoods. Your guide knows all the best photo stops, too.
The area of St. Pauli is a popular nightlife destination, a lively neighborhood filled with bars and music clubs. Calling all Beatles fans. See the Star-Club memorial and Beatles-Platz, a plaza built to commemorate Hamburg's importance in the band's development. In the square, there are five statues representing John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Stuart Sutcliffe, George Harrison, and a hybrid of Pest Best and Ringo Starr. See the memorial to the Star-Club where the fellas played before they made it big.
Hamburg gives you the sense that it's home to many cities combined into one big place. Unlike the lively St. Pauli area, the Speicherstadt evokes a completely different feeling. Translated to "city of warehouses," this district was originally built as a free zone where goods could be transferred without paying customs and it boasts incredible structures built upon timber-pile foundations. Most of the buildings were constructed between 1883 and 1927. In July 2015, the Speicherstadt was awarded the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the first site of its kind in Hamburg.
Enjoy all of the different areas this intriguing city has to offer on your private tour of Hamburg.
City of bridges
Hamburg is a city practically surrounded by water so it stands to reason that it would have a lot of bridges. But you'll never guess just how many road bridges, railroad bridges, and foot bridges span the area's waterways. Give up? Okay, more than 2,400 bridges, way more than Venice and Amsterdam combined. Be on the lookout for the cable-stayed Kohlbrand Bridge, named for Ditmar Koel, pirate hunter, sea captain, and mayor of Hamburg from 1548-1563.
