Meeting point & instructions

  • Show your smartphone ticket at the starting point, the Rainer Abicht ticket counter at the top of the promenade at the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, Bridge 1
  • The staff will provide you with all information about the itinerary
  • Cruise for one hour on a comfy vessel, a must for first time visitors to Hamburg
  • See Elbe River, locks and container terminals, the Blohm and Voss shipyard, the Köhlbrand Bridge, and more
  • If the tide allows at your time of cruising, see the narrow waterways around the historic Speicherstadt

Not even Venice has as many bridges as Hamburg! See how many you can count as you cruise along in style for one hour. See the bustling harbor in action, the busy container ports, giant ships, and the historic Speicherstadt district from a unique perspective on the water.

Roughly 2,400 bridges of all kinds link the waterways, harbor basin and canals in Hamburg, so seeing the city from the Elbe River is a must. Float under the bridges and take a cruise with the best views!

If the tide allows for it, you'll also get to see the historical Speicherstadt, the impressive old warehouse district where the narrow waterways give the wooden structures even more character.

See how it contrasts with modern HafenCity, watch the workers busy at the docks and container terminals, and sail past the large Blohm and Voss shipyard.

You'll learn some fun and interesting facts about Hamburg and its rich history, and get the lowdown on the ships coming in and out. A must for any first-time visitor to Hamburg.

Aufgrund eines Motorschaden wurde aus der 1-Stündigen Fahrt eine 3-Stündige. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis 30/10. Der Skipper war mit seinen Hamburger Slang natürlich sehr humorvoll unterwegs, den Maschinenschaden hat ihm natürlich keine Landratte abgekauft, zum Schluss hat es dann auch der letzte gemerkt dass es heute ein bisschen länger dauern wird.

Top Veranstaltung. Was die Sehenswürdigkeiten angeht haben wir auch etwas Glück gehabt. Superfrachter, Yachten in Blohm und Voss Werft… Sehr unterhaltsam.
