Mark this date in your calendar: from 5th to 7th of May, 2023, it's "ship ahoy" again for the largest harbour festival in the world.
Every year, the port is transformed into a colourful street festival in honour of the founding of the Port of Hamburg. The ships are welcomed with the grand arrival parade and the Hafengeburtstag is officially opened. A real highlight, in the truest sense of the word, is the great fireworks display over the Elbe. The grand finale of this unique spectacle is the departure parade. With us, you have the unique opportunity to be there when the fascinating sailors, huge cruise ships and numerous smaller escort boats sail past on the Elbe along the city coast of Hamburg.
