Leuchtturm Neuwerk

As solid as a rock

Neuwerk lighthouse is the island's landmark and also the oldest building in Hamburg.

If Neuwerk lighthouse could speak, the history of North Germany would come to life. The 45 metre high tower is already more than 700 years old. It was built to protect the estuary of the Elbe which was important for Hamburg trade. Today, Neuwerk’s landmark offers a great view of the island and the mudflats to its visitors on the viewing platform.

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.
