AT A GLANCE The most important information for cruise guests

Experience cruises live in Hamburg!

The Hanseatic City of Hamburg has always been the gateway to the world. Here, where Albert Ballin invented cruise liners at the end of the 19th century, is where the most beautiful and popular cruise ships in the world regularly arrive and depart from. The ocean liners moor directly in the heart of the city near the Elbphilharmonie and take guests to the Norwegian fjords, the British Isles, the Baltic Sea, the Arctic, Greenland, Spitsbergen and Iceland, around Western Europe or directly to New York.
