Port of Hamburg

About 8,000 ships from all over the world call at Europe's second largest port. From Hamburgs cruise ship terminal to the historic Speicherstadt and the jetties to the modern container port - it smells like freedom and distant countries here.

On a barge tour or a visit to one of the legendary museum ships, visitors can find out at first hand why Hamburg is called the "Gateway to the World". You can also get things from all over the world every Sunday at the legendary Hamburg fish market. Since 1703, the market has been selling just about anything that can't be nailed down, be it kilograms of fish at bargain prices, a dusty porcelain pot or a family of squeaky ducks.

Special insights are offered - not only in "dirty weather" - by the International Maritime Museum on the edge of the new HafenCity, the emigration museum "BallinStadt" and the harbour museum, whose current attraction is the restored four-master "PEKING". Get wanderlust? In our maritime world you will find detailed tips and information about harbour tours, venerable tall ships, arrivals of luxury cruisers as well as spectacular building projects in HafenCity and sights such as the Elbe Philharmonic Hall.
