Besan-Ewer Johanna

The Johanna, built in Elmshorn in 1903, with its shallow draught and folding masts, could and can be used far into the tributaries.

For centuries, the Ewers were the predominant type of ship on the Elbe. It was the motor ships that displaced these flat-bottomed freighters. Due to their shallow draught, the Elwern were able to transport goods back and forth between Hamburg and the Lower Elbe marshes. The Johanna still offers insights into the hustle and bustle on the Elbe about 100 years ago, which you can experience very closely during a trip or visit on board.

Around Harburg's inland harbour, historical and modern architectural styles merge. It's maybe even a bit like HafenCity. Finkenwerder, on the other hand, has the charm of a fishing village. – Here, you see a quite different, almost rural side of Hamburg. Harburg and Finkenwerder are also good starting points for discovering the Hamburg metropolitan area.
