On the go with Captain Pietsch

Here today, there tomorrow – that's the seafaring experience

Why stay in one place when new continents and adventures are waiting. And yet it does exist: the home port, the place in the heart, the place where you feel at home. When Captain Tobias Pietsch isn't out and about on the world's oceans with his feel-good fleet, he's at anchor in his hometown of Hamburg. We visited him on holiday and explored his favourite places with him.

Witness the activity of this hard-working port at close quarters – some 140 million tonnes of goods are transshipped here each year – and see the human, industrious, creative and cultural sides of the vibrant Hamburg quayside.
