World-famous ship welcoming point. Every day from sunrise to sunset (8.00am to 8.00pm in the summer) all ships of at least 500 GRT arriving in and leaving the port are greeted. The Hamburg flag is dipped and the national anthem of the ship concerned is played along with a short welcome message in the appropriate national language. Visitors are given more information on the cargo, route and facts about the ship while relaxing in the café and restaurant of the Schulauer Fährhaus, where ships can be seen arriving and leaving.

Hamburg Michel St. Michaelis Church

Hamburg has many large churches - but only one "Michel": On its platform 106 metres high, there is a fabulous (and breezy) view of Hamburg, the port and the surrounding countryside - one that should not be missed!

930 metres of nightlife & entertainment Reeperbahn

Not even one kilometre in length, and yet rich in contrast: the Reeperbahn is bright and shrill, vibrant and down-to-earth – and so much more than just “the sinful mile”. A hotspot for live music and famous for its party atmosphere, the legendary entertainment district in the heart of St Pauli is always worth a visit, offering anything from glamorous shows to colourful musicals.
