The tour was really very interesting and you just get more background knowledge about the Reeperbahn. Our guide Fredo was very motivated and had a lot of information to offer. Even a loft on the Reeperbahn with all kinds of interesting objects was part of it. The only downside is that the farewell was so different from what they were used to. Because after a final stop on the big freedom and a tour by the tour guide, the tour was suddenly over. The tour guide suddenly disappeared into the crowd!
It was a great guide and a great group. We saw and experienced a lot. It was a shame that in our Hamburg time Olivia Jones was still on vacation. I would have loved to have seen her live. So ... watch the date. After the Reeperbahn round we went with the guide and about half of the group for a beer, which is of course not a must, but was very nice. I / we can only recommend such a guided tour.
The panopticum contains about 150 wax figure, most of them are international but about 25 are mainly for German visitors, some of them with relation to Hamburg like former soccer player Uwe Seeler or German pop star Udo Lindenberg. You can spend in the wax figure museum about an hour/ 90 minutes, then you have seen almost everything. Nevertheless I recommend a visit as the price is fair.
Nice atmosphere. The figures are integrated into suitable scenes. The newer figures look better. Everything is lovingly designed. At the checkout we would be offered to store the suitcases. That's great.
The figures look really lifelike. Especially the representation of historical people on the top floor is really good!
