The port is the heart of Hamburg with so much to see and do.
If you’re tempted onto the water don’t pay for a cruise round the harbour when you can do much of the same by taking one or two ferries for far less.
The star trip was on #73.This was great and went in amongst narrow waterways, past old buildings that would have hummed in the port’s heyday. #62 was pretty good too.

This is definitely my favourite place in Hamburg. Waling along the Elbe you'll get a great view of the impressive harbour. However, I would definitely recommend taking a boat (not a tour, a simple boat, like the 62 or 72) and enjoy the view from the Elbe directly. A must in my eyes!

I really enjoyed the tour with the sailing Company we choksejr by coinsidence. We West to the harbour with the mighty Big containerships, had a beer on the deck, and heard a lot of funny stormes from the german tour guide. If You dont understand german, the trip is still perfect.

A busy working port with cruise ships, container ships and the ferries. Then there are the local ferries which are a great way to get around and very cheap too. Near Landsbrucken there are loads of restaurants and bars to drink and eat on the water front, although very busy with footfall

My boyfriend and I decided to go with a small boat tour with Kapitän Prüsse (I don't know if they offer English language tours as we did it in German). It was a small boat with at most 50 people on board and we went all around the harbor area as well as out to where the cargo ships (un)load all of their stuff. It's really fascinating to see these enormous ships just doing their thing, especially from the point of view of a tiny little boat. I wouldn't say it's exactly "beautiful," considering it's very industrial, but it certainly is part of the history and economy of the area and thus super interesting. If you go on a boat tour, make sure to not sit where there's glass because then pictures are harder to take. However, be prepared on a smaller boat to get a little wet if the waves are big

Starting at Metro Station Überseequartier, it is a wonderful walk down the canals, along the buildings, while overlooking the ships, to Elbphilarmonie and the Elbpromenade. I suggest you take time to stroll, have a drink or a "brötchen" on the way, to experience "local life".
Children loved it too, plenty of strange things for them to look at on the water !

A very busy place. There is everything here. You could take an afternoon stroll till your heart desires. You could take a ferry to helgoland or other outer islands. you could sit at a cafe and watch the passersby. You could have a romantic dinner with your other half. Or even take a show at the Elbephilharmonic! This is such a wonderful place.

I visited Port of Hamburg on a bus tour and reality was beyond expectations. Never thought industrial sightseeings would be so astonishing.

Tour is perfect for rainy days, as there is limited walking options, while Port of Hamburg in a rainy, misty day is something magical and mystical, at the same time.

Totally recommended!

Spent a lovely relaxing two hours just strolling along the promenade, watching the boats and gulls. Interesting to see the heart of Hamburg - the Elbe.
Easy to get to on the train and plenary of places to have a coffee and a bite to eat.
Would highly recommend this breath of fresh air away from the busy city.

Busy place and lot's of harbour boat tour offer however very few offer English guide. We had to ask before purchase the ticket. At the very end of the molo was the only one with English service. The tour was nice and long enough.
