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.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT St. Pauli, the Harbour & the Reeperbahn

At Hamburg’s city coast, the Elbe and the harbour, you can just sit down and watch as ships, ferries and tugs pass by and enjoy the strong sea breeze. A few hundred meters away you can experience Hamburg’s world-famous “sinful mile” – the Reeperbahn.

Stroll, relax and watch the ships on the Elbe beach Elbe beach

The Elbe beach near Övelgönne is a pretty hot tip in summer. When the temperatures rise and the sun burns, nothing is more refreshing than a jump into the cool water.

View Point

A viewing tower offers a host of new perspectives of the growing HafenCity in Hamburg. However, it is not only the view which is spectacular. The View Point itself is very eye-catching.

Outstanding German civil engineering Alter Elbtunnel

When the old Elbe Tunnel, also called St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel, opened in 1911, it was a technical sensation. Today, it is a nostalgic and lovingly tended piece of Hamburg history – and has already celebrated its 100th anniversary.
