Övelgönne & Environs

Experience the history of shipping.

The Övelgönne museum harbour is home to numerous historic ships. Many of them have been painstakingly restored by hand and are now ready for use again. Although the name may suggest it, the port is by no means a museum in the traditional sense. From the outside you can always admire the ships, and if you are lucky someone is on board and can let you experience what it feels like to step on a piece of history. The nearby Elbe beach in Övelgönne invites you to relax, stroll and marvel at the passing ships.

Hamburg has been awarded for this outstanding ensemble of historic buildings which can be experienced as an urban space for the first time since the abolition of the Hamburg Freeport. We discover the heart of the Speicherstadt with its impressive brick facades and dikes, we cross bridges and reach the Chilehaus, the Sprinkenhof and the Messberghof. Both districts share historic stories about office clerks, money counting tables, paternoster as well as outstanding architecture.
