Along the Elbe

Walk along the Elbe from HafenCity to Oevelgönne.

Experience Hamburg's highlights along the Elbe on the way. From HafenCity to the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, Rickmer Rickmers and Park Fiction to the Elbe beach at Ovelgönne, you will discover the many facets of the Hanseatic city up close on this route.

Starting point of the tour is the View Point in the Hafencity, from here you have an excellent view over the modern district and the harbor scenery. From there, the tour continues to the Hamburg Cruise Center, from where you can also discover some maritime highlights on the waterfront. Not far away is the next stop, the Elbphilharmonie. Here, a free ride to the plaza is worthwhile, because there you can also enjoy a unique view. From the top, you can also spot the next stop: the museum ship Rickmer Rickmers. From the water, the tour heads toward Sankt Pauli to Park Fiction, where you can relax briefly between art and athletes. Next, the tour leads back to the Elbe, from Hamburg's famous Fischmark it goes to a somewhat quieter area, the Elbstrand. On the way to Ovelgönne, the Strandperle is an excellent place to stop for a bite to eat. The end of the tour is then the "Old Swede", the oldest immigrant in Hamburg. After a rest on the Elbe beach, you can then cycle along the Elbe back to the center of Hamburg.

A viewing tower offers a host of new perspectives of the growing HafenCity in Hamburg. However, it is not only the view which is spectacular. The View Point itself is very eye-catching.
