    Cruise terminals have become indispensable in Hamburg. As a permanent port area for cruise ships, almost 180 ships with more than 600,000 visitors are recorded here every year at present. Cruise ships from around the world moor here. The Queen Mary 2 is probably one of the most famous guests in the Port of Hamburg.

    The Hamburg Cruise Centres at HafenCity, Altona and Steinwerder serve as cruise terminals in the Port of Hamburg.  The Hamburg Cruise Centre HafenCity occupies 1,500 square metres and is architecturally unique in this form. You can regularly admire the so-called "fat pots" (big ships) at the 330-metre quay in HafenCity. However, another terminal became essential due to the thriving development of the cruise industry. The ground-breaking ceremony for the Cruise Centre Altona took place in March 2009 and it opened almost two years later, on 1 April 2011. Particularly interesting: Visitors can climb the roof of the Cruise Centre and wave at the incoming or departing passengers, or simply enjoy a great view of the Port of Hamburg.
    In 2015, another Cruise Center was opened: At Steinwerder, cruise ships of the most modern kind are able to land.
