Maritime Highlights

Go for a walk in the City

Stroll along the Waterkant and enjoy Hamburg's maritime charm!

On this tour you will discover the maritime highlights that Hamburg has to offer. From the HafenCity you can explore the banks of the Elbe to the Elbe suburb of Wedel. Start your tour at Hamburg Cruise Center HafenCity, the temporary cruise terminal close to the city centre that surprises with unique architectural ideas. Enjoy the sun's rays on the Magellan Terraces and enjoy the charm of impressive architecture. Today, the HafenCity InfoCenter is located in the Kesselhaus, the former energy centre of the Speicherstadt, where you can inform yourself about the current state of development of the urban development project. From the viewing platform Plaza of the Elbphilharmonie you can then enjoy a unique view over HafenCity and the hustle and bustle on the Elbe. You continue your walk in the direction of Landungsbrücken, passing maritime eye-catchers such as the old English lightship and the Cap San Diego, which now houses a "museum you can touch".  In the old Elbe tunnel you can walk 426.5 metres across under the Elbe and enjoy the view of Hamburg's skyline on the other side of the Elbe in Steinwerder.

Passing the fish market, where the weekly "Fischmarkt" attracts many locals and tourists every Sunday morning between 5 and 9:30 a.m., you continue along the Elbe to the Elbe beach, which offers pure relaxation. The maritime tour ends at Willkomm-Höft. At this world-famous ship welcoming facility you can watch incoming and outgoing ships until sunset.
