Hahndorf Walking Tours


The Germanic township of Hahndorf, 33km east of Adelaide, is one of the most visited destinations in South Australia.

“But most people walk up both sides of the street and, while they see the traditional architecture and lots of pretty shops and galleries, they don’t pick up much historical knowledge,” says Sharon Pippof, the owner of Hahndorf Walking Tours.

“There were four ships that set off from Europe full of Prussians who were facing religious persecution and 596 people ended up coming to this colony in 1838/39,” she continues. “Today it’s the oldest Germanic settlement in Australia.”

Sharon, who sometimes dresses up for the occasion, offers three Hahndorf tours.

The Hufendorf tour looks at the original formation of the township and takes in the backstreets and backyards that most people would never see. The Strassendorf tour concentrates on the main street.

There is also a newly developed tour the Hahndorf After Dark Tour. You’ll be really pleased you took the time to see the side of Hahndorf that Sharon reveals.

Tours cost $33 and take place at 2pm on Friday, weekends and public holidays, and at 6pm daily in daylight saving time. Group prices available. Ring 0477 288 011
