The Landungsbrücken

Explore Hamburg's water station

Hamburg's floating jetty is 700 metres long; the first pontoons were constructed in 1839. Built at that time for storing coal, the jetties today are mainly as points of departure for harbour cruises, harbour ferries and the HADAG steamships to Finkenwerder, Övelgönne and Blankenese. The shuttle ferries to Disney's THE LION KING and PRETTY WOMAN also start at the Landungsbrücken. In addition, there are numerous opportunities to enjoy culinary delights and to purchase a souvenir or two. The entrance to the old Elbe Tunnel is also located here and invites you to take a stroll. There is no better starting point to explore Hamburg by boat or on foot!

Harbour tour

A magical mix of wanderlust, adventure and freedom. The harbour tour takes in the Landungsbrücken jetties, originally built for steam ships, and passes veteran vessels such as the 'Rickmer Rickmers' before motoring through the warehouse district to the modern port in use today. Subject to tides/water level. Witness the activity of this hard-working port at close quarters – some 110 million tonnes of goods are transshipped here each year – and see the human, industrious, creative and cultural sides of the vibrant Hamburg quayside.
