The Tall Ship Parade on Sunday

Farewell of the ships from the Hamburg Port Anniversary

Even the biggest harbour festival in the world comes to an end. The closing event of the Hamburg Port Anniversary is the big sailing parade on the Elbe. The numerous ships then bid farewell to the port of Hamburg.

After three days of hustle and bustle on the HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY, the many large sailing ships, traditional ships and museum ships bid farewell to each other with the large sailing parade. The more than 250 ships, which had all been ceremoniously received in the Hanseatic city four days earlier, are now embarking on their journey home - regardless of whether they have to cross wide seas to do so, or whether their homeland is just around the corner or even in Hamburg harbour. Just like the the Tall Ship Parade on Friday, the exit of the numerous ships can be admired from the water as well as from both sides of the Elbe.
