Canal rides in Hamburg

A special feature of a trip to Hamburg is a canal trip

The best way to experience the maritime charm of the city is to take a cruise along its canals. "Fleet" is a North German word and means "trench". For a long time, these canals were the only means of drainage in the Speicherstadt, and were why the lowest floors of the offices built on oak piles in the port of Hamburg could never be used to store valuable goods such as spices or carpets. Even today it is difficult to convert them into apartments.

The narrow canals, bridges and streets along the world's largest contiguous warehouse complex are a permanent element and part of the Hanseatic City's identity.
