I was born in this cosmopolitan city and my grandfather worked on various freighters. Am very familiar with this area. It was clean, not changed too much and reasonably priced.

There is nothing interesting to see. Just an industrialized harbour. I can't understand why somebody could be interested to walk around there. It's simply boring

average.. you can take the ferry from the dock n°3,( is free of charge for owners of the "hamburg card") and make some stops along the river or go to the other side.. very busy on Sundays. nicer in summer than in winter, sure.

In Summer it must be amazing! However, even in the grey of winter, taking the Harbour ferry provides wonderful views of maritime Hamburg. Ride outside or inside, depending on the weather. We started at the Maritime Museum, where we enjoyed soup,sausage, and gluwein before boarding. We rode down to the last stop before continuing on the return run all the... More

River views, souvenir shops, harbour cruises, and fast food stalls. Great for a walk along the water, and photo opportunities of the cranes and ships in the harbour.

If you have bought a one day ticket for the public transport....go for a cruise on the ferry and the bus 111. It is free with your day's transport pass and is lovely

I got off at the subway to be greeted by the famous bridge with the padlocks on it representing people's relationships. It was pretty cool. It is a good walk along the water with different little things along it. Restaurants and tours mostly... Cool views of the harbor.

We had an HVV day ticket which includes the ferry. We took the Ubahn to Landungsbruecken and made our way fairly directly to the waterfront. It was not too easy to figure out exactly which one of the watercraft was the public ferry. There are many, many tour boats, which cost a lot more, out there. We had a nice... More
