    A cheap way to see the harbour: Do as the locals do and go on a ferry tour with your bus ticket!

    The Landungsbrücken are always busy, there are ferries leaving every few minutes to show the guests the harbor and tell stories about all the sights worth seeing. If you are on a budget you can skip the storytelling and see everything on your own by using your ordinary bus, metro ticket or the Hamburg Card. There are seven ferry lines operating in the harbor, all of them are starting at the “Landungsbrücken”. They start on a regular schedule and are used by locals alternatively to buses and the city railway.

    The editors choice: Line 62 to Finkenwerder, starting from platform 3. This is where you drive by the dockyard of  BLOOM + VOSS, the old fish market, the docklands with its ocean liners, the Övelgönne museum featuring its antique ships, the beach and the beautiful  mansions of  Blankenese. The picturesque Övelgönne is a former fishing village hemmed by the beach and scenic houses. Teufelsbrück is the place where you can watch the ships entering and leaving the harbor or just relax in the lush greens of Jenish-Park.

    Or you choose Line 61 and stop at „Anleger Neuhof“. You will be rewarded with a magnificent sight of the Köhlbrandbrücke which is beautifully illuminated at night.On your way back you can watch the hustel and bustle from the other side. Just take line 73 to Ernst August Schleuse, step off at “Theater im Hafen” and enjoy the panoramic view. Musical guests can do this for free.

    The HADAG ferry boats offer drinks and snacks which can be consumed inside or on deck.
