Café Ponton

The floating café directly downtown.

One of the nicest spots in Hamburg's new town: enjoy coffee, cakes and hot dishes after a long shopping trip in this beautiful café made of floating pontoons.

Guests of the Café Ponton, which serves hot and cold food and drinks throughout the day, can hardly find a more beautiful seat on the floating pontoon.
As one of the most sought-after locations in the city centre, Café Ponton not only offers a fantastic location, but also delicious food and drinks at a very special location. The restaurant floating on the water makes your visit a unique experience. In summer the pontoon is covered with many sunshades and in winter you can also sit outside thanks to sufficient heating. This makes the café an ideal meeting place for connoisseurs. Let yourself be surprised and enchanted by the taste of the lovingly prepared dishes. In addition, the restaurant offers a weekly changing lunch menu.

Embedded in the Bleichenfleet, the Cafe Ponton lives from its unique surroundings - the beauty of our city. 

For the small appetite, you will find cakes from the confectionery Lindtner and many other delicacies that will make your heart beat faster.
