Cremon, in Hamburg’s old city, is part of the city’s history and the eponymous street of Cremon Island. There were once warehouses and residential dwellings on the canal and on a street front so that goods could be sent and received via water as well as land.

It is no longer clear what Cremon means, but it may indicate a one-time resident or a street crossing reminiscent of the crescent moon. The first written mention of the street is in 1251. Cremon Island naturally includes the Cremon, but also the Katharinenstraße and Katharinen canal, Steckelhörn and Bei den Mühren. 
The Cremon withstood the Hamburg fire of 1842, but much of it fell to air attacks during the Second World War. Accordingly, only a few buildings are extant today. The last warehouses are in the house numbers 33 to 36.

Outstanding German civil engineering Alter Elbtunnel

When the old Elbe Tunnel, also called St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel, opened in 1911, it was a technical sensation. Today, it is a nostalgic and lovingly tended piece of Hamburg history – and has already celebrated its 100th anniversary.

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.
