The oldest immigrant in Hamburg: the “Old Swede”. Along the Hans-Leip shore lies a boulder weighing nearly 220 tonnes, the so-called “Old Swede”. It was found in 1999 by workers digging out a shipping channel, and got its name due to its ice-age migration from Scandinavia to the Elbe. The Old Swede is one of Germany’s largest ice-age boulders.

Hamburg's water station. Landungsbrücken

The floating dock - called the "Landungsbrücken" (landing stages) – is 700 metres long. Harbour tours and the HADAG steamers to Finkenwerder, Oevelgönne and Blankenese leave from this water "station". Impressive luxury cruisers also dock here from time to time.
