Nice tunnel but wouldn’t bother going out of your way for a visit. Follow the tunnel to get to a lovely view of the harbour

The tunnel is great and is in daily use. Extremely interesting, I was pleasantly surprised. There are two tunnels but one is in repair at the moment.

A must do in Hamburg.. and even more exciting after we learned, that it was builded for the 33.000 workers at the shipyard nearby. (Now a days employing just a bit more than 1000 workers)

It is free and great. You can easily walk from one side to the other and back, but watch out for the bikes in the middle. On the otherside come out and look at the city from the other side.

I enjoyed the overall experience, going down, the walk under the Elbe and the historic elevators. Really great experience!

Interesting experience to walk through the tunnel, very busy, with lots of cyclists. Once on the other side a great view of Hamburg, but not much to do.
