what to expect

As the sun dips beneath a golden horizon, your cruise will set sail from St. Pauli Piers through an illuminated Hamburg Harbour. This late evening cruise will give you a whole new perspective on the largest seaport in all of Germany. While the port presents itself as a striking image of urbanization and development, it also, much like Venice, has a labyrinth of canals, inducing a feeling of medieval times. Hamburg owes much of its worldly character to the mighty Elbe, the river on which the port is situated.

From the historic and splendid red-brick warehouses of Speicherstadt to the architectural masterpieces of HafenCity, this is a place where history meets modernity. You will get to see the Zollkanal, Wasserschloss and the International Maritime Museum. As you cruise along, admire the Marco Polo Tower and the impressive Elbe Philharmonic Hall with its glassy and opalescent exterior. No other city in all of Europe has as many bridges as Hamburg does. Explore the numerous structures over water, canals, channels, busy locks and container terminals, the Köhlbrand Bridge, and much more on your magical one-hour cruise of the harbor.
