Full description
Take a 60-minute cruise from St. Pauli Landungsbrücken to the beautiful and wealthy suburb of Blankenese. Learn about the container port, the St. Pauli Piers, and the mesmerizing Elbphilhamonie while onboard the ship or simply enjoy the view and take a break from the city. The audio guide is available in 8 languages, but you can always ask the crew for insider stories and fishermen tales.

Upon arrival in Blankenese, alight from the boat and explore the former fisherman's village that has developed into a mesmerizing residential town with beautiful mansions, large parks, and a variety of unique shops. Stay at Blankenese for many hours and simply catch the ferry back, at your own pace. The last ferry leaves Blankenese at 6:25 PM.

Bicycles are allowed on board for an additional fee and it is recommended to take a bike ride through this beautiful area along the river Elbe. If you decide to bring your bicycle, please select "add bicycle" during the check-out process.

On the way back to Hamburg, make a quick stop in Teufelsbrück and pass the container port at Burchardkai. Here, see container ships being loaded and unloaded right next to the enormous dry docks of the shipyard Blohm & Voss. During your return trip, listen to more stories via the audio guide. The boat will return to its original location at St. Pauli Pier.
