Port of Hamburg, Hamburg

4.6
#1 of 31 in Parks in Hamburg
Often called the country's Gateway to the World, Port of Hamburg is Germany's largest port and one of the world's busiest. The harbor covers about 74 sq km (26 sq mi), taking advantage of the branching Elbe River. Visit the port, which is almost as old as the city itself, to see how many of the old warehouses have changed into contemporary museums, bars, shops, restaurants, and hotels. Ultramodern buildings stand right next to well-preserved pearls of 19th-century architecture. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Hamburg trip simple and quick.

  • The port is huge. You only get a sense of the size by doing a boat trip. Also you get to see the beaches. An hour trip is enough.  more »

  • I recommend not only walk it but also take from the dock number 3 ferry 62 making a journey that begins and ends in the same place with a very nice view. The ferry is part of the transport network public so it is included in the daily transit pass, you can also buy individual ticket like any other public transport. It has air-conditioned and outdoor domestic sector in the open air.

  • Worthwhile visit - A walking visit of the Port of Hamburg is recommended. There are open spaces to sit, restaurants to eat at and plenty of photo opportunities.
  • Such a beautiful place. Really, if you in Hamburg, Hafencity is a place must to see. You are in present, but you can touch a history, which is co-operate with present. Elbphilharmonie, Landrücken... I love it
  • Nice place to visit and take a boat bus around to enjoy sightseeing along the harbor about 5kms. There on the boat you can take amazing photos as you want.
  • This is truly a large industrial park. Interesting views both from heights and from the water.
  • A versatile place to visit. This is the second largest seaport of Europe. The port is on the North sea. A lot facilities for the visitors to travel and to enjoy its beauty. A big size international ships around the world gather here. Sea coach services are available for the visitors to visit the amazing place around here.
