What are the Hackertours? The team in Hamburg has sought out interesting locations in the city that will take you away from the catacombs of the Congress Center for a few hours, letting you experience exciting new things.

The Tours

Cap San Diego

Cap San Diego is a general cargo ship built in 1961 which still is seaworthy and can be visited in the harbour. On our tour we will see the bridge as well as the engine room. An exhibition takes us back in time to worldwide shipping before the introduction of sea containers. Detailed Info

Old Elbe Tunnel

Look behind the curtain: the St. Pauli Elbe tunnel connects the neighbourhood St. Pauli with the island Steinwerder. It was built from 1907 to 1911, and was one of the first road tunnels in the world. On this tour, Thomas Heidborn is going to take you to the cupola of the head building on the St. Pauli side and take you back to the time where it all began. All details

Train Museum Loco Shed in Aumühle

The Society of Traffic Amateurs and Heritage Railways (Verein Verkehrsamateure und Museumsbahn e. V.) at the Loco Shed in Aumühle have collected and restored trains, resulting in 150 years worth of railroad history, among them multiple generations of rapid transit trains which provided transportation in Hamburg. Using the Field Train, we are going to take a tour around the premises of the museum and its exhibits. Competent volunteering members are going to explain the history of the moving stock, the signal tours and safety equipment, track construction and many other aspects. Where possible, equipment is operational and can be touched! All details

Energy Bunker Wilhelmsburg

A beacon of the transition to renewable energy: For far too long, the old anti-aircraft bunker in Wilhelmsburg was an architectural eyesore. Today, the former wartime building is a globally unique example of the innovative use of renewable energy and a pioneer for other regional power plants around the world. The tour of the bunker shows the development from a wartime building to an innovative lighthouse project for the transition to renewable energy. Afterwards, you can enjoy the incomparable panoramic view over the city at Café vju. Detailed Info
