On the Elbe

Hamburg's blue lifeline

You can experience the "big pots" - big ships - up close in Hamburg on numerous places along the Elbe. Away from the Landungsbrücken and the fish market, there are numerous other spots where you can experience the maritime lifestyle. On the Elbe beach you can relax wonderfully; don't forget your picnic basket! If you don't have any provisions, we recommend the numerous restaurants and cafés with a view of the Elbe - a special pleasure for all who like to enjoy themselves and watch the hustle and bustle on the river. If that's not close enough for you, how about a harbour cruise?
