Old Elbe Tunnel & Environs

How do you cross the Elbe without getting wet?

Opened in 1911, the Elbe Tunnel was the continent's first river tunnel. The growth of the port of Hamburg made better transport connections necessary. Today, the old Elbe Tunnel is a part of Hamburg's history and invites you to take a stroll through the past. There is a lot to see on both sides of the Elbe. Numerous Elbe and harbour tours start from the Landungsbrücken; for those who need a snack, there are fish sandwiches on every corner. From the southern side of the Elbe you can admire the beautiful panorama of the Hanseatic City.

Visitors who want to get to know Hamburg properly have got to take to the water at some point. This is why the Discovery Tour ticket includes tours of the harbour and the Alster lake as well as a standard sightseeing tour. You can combine these three tours in any way you like over a period of up to three days. A day pass for the red double-decker buses allows you to hop on and off at the 29 stops along the route of the sightseeing tour for a whole calendar day.

A magical mix of wanderlust, adventure and freedom. The harbour tour takes in the Landungsbrücken jetties, originally built for steam ships, and passes veteran vessels such as the 'Rickmer Rickmers' before motoring through the warehouse district to the modern port in use today. Subject to tides/water level. Witness the activity of this hard-working port at close quarters – some 140 million tonnes of goods are transshipped here each year – and see the human, industrious, creative and cultural sides of the vibrant Hamburg quayside.
