Every two years Hamburg celebrates its second largest maritime event besides the port birthday: the Hamburg Cruise Days. For one weekend, the Elbe promenade is transformed into the cruise hot spot of Europe.
For the 9th time, the Hamburg Cruise Days in September 2021 will transform the port into the absolute cruise hot spot in Europe. The popular event, which is known beyond the borders of Germany, always takes place in the odd years.
Maritime meeting place
The Cruise Days are a complete success for the Hanseatic city every time. Visitors from all over the world come to marvel at cruise ships, be inspired and enjoy the colourful supporting programme of stage shows, gastronomy and shopping opportunities.
Back to 2019
Gigantic ships, spectacular stage acts and magical light shows: The Cruise Days 2019 impressed numerous visitors. A new highlight was the performance of the Costa Mediterranea on the opening evening, which was accompanied by impressive light and sound effects. The Great Hamburg Cruise Days Parade at the end of the three-day event was just as impressive. Accompanied by fireworks and astonished eyes, the column of illuminated ships pulled down the Elbe towards the sea from the port of Hamburg. The Cruise Days 2019 were framed by Blue Port Hamburg. The light installation bathed the waterfront in blue colours.
Information on the 2020 programme will be available here shortly.
