There are two different tours to choose from. Line A with the red double-decker bus and Line D with the blue bus. The tours offer an extensive route that takes in a variety of Hamburg sights. Whether it's St Michael's Church, the Elbphilharmonie concert hall or the Landungsbrücken, every stop on the route offers the opportunity to see Hamburg's attractions up close. You can hop on and off at any stop and take the time to explore and enjoy these highlights. The open-top double-decker buses (weather permitting) offer an unrestricted view of the city.
