About Us

Rikscha, Mahnmal St. Nikolai, Tagestour Top 10

"Cherchez la femme!"

My greatest love

is my wife. She inspired

me to balance my work

 (I am teaching history

in Hamburg)

and my love



by offering guided tours on a rickshaw,

with the added benefit that I get to

improve my knowledge of foreign

languages. Mens sana

in corpore sano: 

In a healthy body

lives a healthy soul.

As a


riding the rickshaw

has become my hobby

over the last several years.

With every tour I give, I get to

know my city, its inhabitants

and the around 16 million

guests it accommodates

annually a little bit better.

This is the experience

I would like to share

with you

and help you

become a part of.

From Hamburg with love, 

Dr. Bernd Wrede

Why Hamburg by rickshaw?

My cycle rickshaw or pedicab can accommodate two guests, and with it I will take you on a ride through my city. Together we can explore Hamburg in comfort, close to the people and sights yet protected from the weather. We will ride along bike paths, through pedestrian zones, on city streets and experience the beauty, history and culture only Hamburg has to offer.

Don't speak German? No problem. I can give your rickshaw tour either in English, German or Russian.

You can book single rides, a day trip or a variety of different other options based on your specific needs or desires. We can make any other arrangements that you need for your stay in Hamburg as well.

We highly recommend our day trip through the Top 10. If the Top 10 Tour is not what you are looking for, we can design a tour together which includes any of the modules from the Top 10 Tour or incorporates your own ideas. Simply get in touch with me, and we we'll create a tour for you.

I can also accompany you as your guide if you would like to go shopping in any of the areas we bike through. Remember: The Neue Wall is one of the ten leading shopping miles in Europe. 

Finally I would like to invite you on a tour of the picturesque Historic Hamburg. This is the best way to understand the 1200 year history of Hamburg, the free spirit of the "honorable merchant" and all that has led to Hamburg becoming one of the most beautiful cities in the world.  

Elbe Philharmonic Hall


At the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, we'll introduce you to everything you need to know about Hamburg's new landmark:

  • the architecture, building history and financing
  • the structure of parking garage, hotel and apartments
  • the engineering solutions for the "Tube" (curved escalator), glass facade and pedestal
  • the security concept
  • the concept of orientation and lighting design, lights and lamps
  • the secrets of the concert halls, their acoustics and the current program.
