Hamburg Harbour & Environs

Discover Europe's second largest port!

Around 13,000 seagoing vessels from all over the world call at Europe's second largest port every year. From the cruise terminal to the historic Speicherstadt, and from the jetties to the modern container port, the smell of freedom and distant lands is in the air. The harbour shows its best side from the water. Numerous round trips invite tourists daily to discover this facet and offer a unique perspective on the heart of Hamburg. In addition, spectacular cruise ships, container ships, as well as one or the other museum ship, can always surprise you. Once ashore, the maritime harbour flair attracts with a view of the Elbe and excellent restaurants surrounded by the HafenCity and the Övelgönne beach.

Kanalfahrt

This tour of the idyllic, verdant Alster canals give you a completely different impression of Hamburg. As the Alster steamer glides slowly along, a whiff of sea air transports you back to the heyday of Hamburg's rich merchants. The pace of life is slower here, proof that modern, maritime Hamburg also has its quiet side.
