I am an art historian and interior architect. I gave tours since studying in Cologne, Germany and London. I know Syndey since the year 2000 and I love it's beautiful setting and the incredible variety of architecture and styles. I am a very friendly citizen of this world and I like to meet people from all over the world to show them this special place.

Where you'll be

We will do an eye opening walking tour through the heart of Sydney. The tour will include some of the Syndey classics like the iconic Opera House and the old world elegance of Government House but I will also bring buildings to your attention that are very special and sometimes only to find in Sydney. It is so interesting I can't wait to tell you many of the secrets and from where the rich achritctural appearance originates from.

wer sydney sehr allumfassend entdecken möchte, sollte diese führung nicht verpassen. durch gezielte fragen wurde neben den spannenden architekturthemen noch sehr viel wissenswerte über die stadt und deren geschichte vermittelt. eine, wenn nicht die beste führung, die wir je geniessen durften.

Nice tour! Excellent guide. Without Hans, I would have just went to the Opera house and known nothing about the city. Hans is knowledgeable, kind and interesting. Good job Germans!

Hans is a very knowledgeable, passionate and caring guide. If you ever come to visit Sydney and want to find somebody to teach you about the city's history there is no one better than Hans for that. 100% recommended.

The experience was unique and full of historical stories, in addition to to the tour Hans put in lots of effort to the routes and made it a very personal yet explicit tour. Hans was super friendly and was very willing to share his knowledge, we did the tour in the first day visiting Sydney and it was the best decision, add on a lot of spots for us to visit for the rest of the trip!

Hans-Lothar was a wonderful guide through Sydney. We learned lots about Sydney's history and culture through the architecture. We also were able to see the beautiful botanic gardens. It was education and well-worth our time. Hans-Lothar is also personable and easy to spend three hours with. Highly recommend!
