Harbour Round Trips

Enjoy the Elbe experience and discover Hamburg from the water with the many offers from Elbreederei Rainer Abicht...

Enjoy the Elbe experience and discover Hamburg from the water's side with the diverse offers of the Elbe shipping company Rainer Abbicht.

Every half hour, our typical Hamburg launches, numerous modern passenger ships or our paddle-wheel ship MS LOUISIANA STAR set sail for the big harbour tour or the 2-hour XXL cruise.

In the high season (from Easter to the end of October) at 12 noon a round trip in English starts. Captains from the olden days explain things worth knowing and tell interesting stories about the development of the harbour, but don't worry, the humour won't be neglected. Have you ever thought about an evening light ride on the Elbe? Our maritime launches glide through the special evening atmosphere of the harbour basins, in the canals and canals of the historic Speicherstadt (depending on the tide) with its fantastically illuminated bridges, which have been part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 2015. And the public events - from on-board parties and live music events to the popular New Year's Eve, harbour birthday or cruise days - also convey wonderful impressions of Hamburg from the water.
