Full description
Enjoy the unique maritime flair and colorful crowds at the Port of Hamburg on this daily tour of the docks.

The area of the city of Cologne would fit into the Port of Hamburg without a problem - and Cologne is the fourth-largest city in Germany. The size of the Port of Hamburg is truly impressive and second only to Rotterdam, the largest port in Europe.

Hardly another city in the world is so tied to its port; Hamburg truly developed because of it. The most important sights and the skyline are inextricably linked to the port.

Experience the contrast between past and present, commerce and culture, the little fishing town along the Elbe and the state-of-the-art container complexes, sinful stretches and the fish market, old cutters and massive cruise and container ships. Discover this gateway to the world up-close onboard a little ship, equally suited to a fleet.

We booked our tickets in advance, but on-site it would have been possible without a long wait. We had problems first, the described place, which was described on the tickets, to find. Upon request, we learned that we could choose a boat, which we found very good. So you still had the choice between two routes.

Mini cruise in a German metropolis

With extended German language skills, the two-hour harbor tour becomes a special kind of listening and viewing experience. So entertaining behavior and behavioral rules are conveyed with Hanseatic wink. And the political classification is not too short. Furthermore, the smartphone / mobile phone reaches its limits technically while driving. The modern equipment of the ship offers for this problem free remedy - nowadays no matter of course!

Great views of the city and a thorough exploration of the entire harbor including the commercial areas with impressive cargo ships and cranes. Lost a star for me because the booking process was confusing (namely which language the tour was offered in) and the directions for the meeting site were so ambiguous we almost missed the boat.
