HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY 2013
The world’s greatest port festival!
Some of the world’s largest and most beautiful cruise, frigates and steamboats ships are expected and can be admired during the four days. Aquatic events like the Grand Arrival Parade, the Tugboat Ballet are at the heart of the Port of Hamburg’s birthday celebrations.
The celebration centres around land events along the gangplanks (Landungsbrücken) from the warehouses of the Dockland warehouse district (Kehrwiederspitze) to the fish auction hall with approx. 500 fair stands, artistic and culinary delights, shows and entertainment. Countless stages, some of them featuring radio stations, events for children, young people and families, as well as museum specials (exhibitions, guided tours, etc.) round out the program with a cultural flourish.
The date of the HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY goes back to Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa, who granted the people of Hamburg exemption from customs duties for ships on the Elbe from Hamburg to the North Sea on the 7th of May 1189.
