Hamburg: 1.5-Hour Harbor and Speicherstadt Day Cruise
- Skip the line
- Duration: 1.5 hours
HafenCity is one of the most exciting urban projects in Europe. As envisioned in the master plan of 2000, Hamburg's old warehouse district is transforming into a vibrant area featuring fascinating architecture and brimming with restaurants, bars and museums.
Ten floors tall, the gorgeous Kaispeicher B is Hamburg's oldest warehouse and home to the International Maritime Museum, offering insight into the city's rich shipping history.
This 13-meter-tall tower was purposely built as a viewing platform. Climb to the top for a beautiful view of the entire HafenCity, with information on the current developments.
Perfect for a picturesque break, the Magellan Terraces is a futuristic park on the waterfront. In the summer, it's regularly host to outdoor events and concerts.
Don't let its dry-sounding name throw you off. The German Customs Museum is actually a thrilling experience, charting Hamburg's long and wild history of illegal smuggling.
Though still under construction, this modernist concert hall built atop an old warehouse, designed by world-famous architects Herzog & de Meuron, is a wonder to behold.
As one of the HafenCity's greatest pleasures is simply walking around and admiring the incredible architecture and views across the water, it's best to visit on a sunny day. Considering Hamburg's famously capricious weather, your best bet is during the summer months.
It's very difficult to find a good parking spot at HafenCity, so you're better off with public transport. Just take the U-Bahn (subway) line U4 to either Überseequartier or HafenCity University stations and you'll find yourself in the heart of the HafenCity.

Hamburg is beautiful. We saw beautiful corners. The boat tour was great, there was great music and the tour guide was really funny.
Das war sehr schön. Hamburg am Abend. Atmosphäre war entspannt. Tourguide und Fahrer in eine person, war sehr kompetent. Danke
Skilfully chosen route, you get a general overview of the most important parts of the port.
It was a nice tour but would have liked to see more of the Speicherstadt.
Der Kapitän war fantastisch! Schöne gesuchten und war auch ein Humorist!
