Guided Tours

Enjoy hearing stories about the lives of the race car drivers, engineers and their cars at a guided tour. We will be happy to organise your tour for you. Please make sure to book your tour at least one week in advance.



Automuseum PROTOTYP is certified as barrier-free; therefore, it is accessible to those with mobility difficulties and to wheelchair users. The person’s carer will be entitled to free entry on presentation of the relevant document.

Our suggestion

Combine your visit to the HafenCity with a stroll through the neighbouring UNESCO world heritage Speicherstadt district, enjoy a few minutes of relaxation in the Lohsepark (which is situated directly behind the museum) or visit the Elbphilharmonie concert hall (approx. 10 min on foot).
