Tour Description

You may think you know the history of the beautiful port city of Hamburg. Perhaps you have seen some of the spots we will visit on this tour. We can assure you, however, that you have never seen the city in this light before. By day, Hamburg is a lovely, busy city with tourists and locals alike; but at night, the streets are empty and filled with dark secrets of the past. Discover them with us. The Haunted History of Hamburg Tour features some of the horrific and terrifying events that have been buried in Hamburg's past.

What we cover:


Free Internet

A mobile hotspot is available to all guests for the duration of the tour. Simply ask your guide for the password at the beginning of the tour.


When & Where

Tours run at 8pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. We begin at the front gates of the Hamburg Rathaus and end just around the corner at Nikolaikirche.


Free Tour

These tours are FREE to join and guides will happily accept tips at the end of the tour. We run on a first come, first serve basis so we recommend that you book online. Please notify us if your party is larger than 10 so that we can offer you a private group tour.



We welcome any and all guests to join our tour, but please be aware that many of the themes discussed during the tour may not be suitable for young children. If at any time you feel that you need to leave the tour, please notify the guide.

The Guide

Haunted History Guide

Jenny comes from St. Louis, Missouri in the Midwest of the USA. Her real-life fairy-tale love story brought her to Hamburg in the summer of 2014 to marry her Hamburger sweetheart after 5 years of being apart. Just weeks after finishing at Saint Louis University with a Bachelor Degree in English Language and Literature, and a Minor in German Studies, Jenny packed up two suitcases (and her two cats) and quickly made Hamburg her new hometown. Jenny enjoys singing at local karaoke clubs, having a beer with friends, and traveling whenever she can get the chance. Her passion for the city of Hamburg is something that she is excited to share with everyone on her tours.


If you are interested in private history tours of the City of Hamburg with any of our guides, your party is larger than 10 people, or you have any other questions or concerns, please email us and we will be in contact with you shortly. We hope to see you soon!
