Offers for guided tours

For groups who wish to be guided by an expert, IBA Hamburg would be pleased to pass on to you the contact details of a qualified guide who will arrange a professional tour according to your focal point of interest. They will take you on excursion to selected IBA projects, by local public transport, by bicycle or by your own coach.


Tours are in German or English. They take about 2.5 hours and cost 175 euros gross per guide accompanying you to the IBA project area. School groups pay a reduced fee of 120 euros gross. Please note that groups of more than 20 persons require the booking of a second guide. Your guide will also be the person to turn to on all questions about the organisation and contents of the tour and the requested stations.

If you wish us to arrange contact with a guide for a tour to the IBA Hamburg projects, please send an e-mail to willkommen@iba-hamburg.de.

Furthermore, with the IBA App you still have a competent companion to the Elbe islands if you want to discover the IBA projects on your own. The app also offers suggestions for your own tours.


Experience the IBA on your own

The Hamburg Elbe islands are full of contrasts: In the middle of Hamburg, there is a district in upheaval the variety of which you can explore between harbour and highway, in quarters of the promoterism period, the 'Gründerzeit', and in old village centres, in nature reserves and in over 60 IBA projects. You can also find these seven tours in the IBA App.


The IBA Hamburg app is the official guide to the IBA Hamburg 2013. Use it to find out about all the IBA projects on show at the sites in Wilhelmsburg, Veddel, and “Harburg Upriver Port”.
