“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

An interesting experience that you should see for yourself. Don't expect too much because it's not something out of this world. Enjoy 10 seconds of "whoah" and that's it

“what a big accomplishment to that time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

It is a curious experience walk in a nice tunnel made more than a century ago below the river(what a big accomplishment to that time) and in which the cars have to take a elevator to have access in and out of it, there is a nice view of hamburg port from a view point at the other side

“worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

An interesting experience but not amazing. It's something you should see for yourself. I have heard that there are great views of the city from the other side but I didn't really get that. I walked around a bit but it felt like a strange area with groups of men wandering around. Nevertheless, it was worth a visit.

“Well worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Go to the Landungsbruecken, down to the river level and walk to the right.
You can walk down to the old tunnel or get the lift, then walk under the river along to the other bank and up again, which gives a super view of Hamburg. Cars (one way depending on time of day at moment) go up and down in lifts.
It's all free for footpassengers, and very interesting.
