Entertainment in the port

Experiences against a special scenery

In the past, people mainly worked in the port, but today there are also all kinds of things to see, try out and experience. The Elbe, ships and containers provide a picturesque backdrop for sightseeing, concerts - in the open air like Elbjazz or under a roof like the Elbphilharmonie - and festivals like Hafengeburtstag and the Harbour Front Literature Festival.
