Accessible ferries in Hamburg
The HADAG fleet operates 24 ships on 7 routes in the Port of Hamburg and on the Elbe.
The ferries dock at floating pontoons, which can be reached from the shore by access bridges. The pontoon and ship are connected by ramps that are 120 to 180 centimetres wide and their incline varies depending on the tide.
Here is a summary of the key information on accessibility in relation to the Port of Hamburg ferries:
All of the modern ships from the 2000 series, as well as the “Reiherstieg” flagship, have a disabled toilet. The vast majority of ships in operation on the lines are modern and accessible.
At St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, it is best to use the accessible access for bridges 1 and 3 to reach the harbour ferries (the bridges are not as steep at high tide as at low tide – please ensure you use a tide calendar for reference). The route between Cranz and Blankenese is unfortunately not recommended for wheelchair users, as the Cranz and Neuenfelde jetties can only be accessed via steps. The same applies to line 75 and the Steinwerder jetty.
