THE MOST ATTRACTIVE LOOKOUTS FOR SHIPSPOTTERS

LOOKOUTS
Port and city are so close to each other that “ship-watching” by the Elbe is one of the favourite pastimes of locals and tourists. Cafés, pontoons, terraces and paths along the banks offer magnificent views of the fabulous vessels. Here is a selection of the top outdoor locations for shipspotters. Click on the header to open the location’s map view. You will find information for arriving by public transport on www.hvv.de
STINTFANG

The platform on the former ramparts is a popular viewpoint. The tide gauge tower and the St. Pauli jetties are located in the foreground. The elevated position allows spotters to follow the ships closely as they arrive into Cruise Terminal HafenCity.

Getting there: U3, S1, S2, S3 to St. Pauli Landungsbrücken

DOCKLAND

The streamlined office building floats above the water like a ship. The 500m2 roof terrace is accessible. Right next door, you’ll find the Hamburg Cruise Terminal Altona, also with a viewing platform.

Getting there: Bus 111, ferry route 62

ÖVELGÖNNE

Traditional ships of all kinds are kept in excellent shape in the museum port. Besan-Ewers, ocean yachts or steamboats are popular motifs themselves and often take travelling guests on board. Landlubbers enjoy the view from the Elbe bank or from the pontoons, where the HADAG ferries also moor.

Getting there: Ferry route 62

ELBPHILHARMONIE

Cruise ships that moor in the HafenCity sail past Hamburg’s new landmark. From the 37-metre high viewing platform visitors enjoy a fantastic panorama of the city and the port. Tickets without a booking fee can only be obtained directly at the Elphi; there is a fee for online pre-orders.

Getting there: U3 to Baumwall

THEATRES AT THE PORT

The two musical theatres at the port are served by ferry route 73. It shuttles theatregoers from St. Pauli Landungsbrücken to the southern Elbe bank. When the sun is out, light conditions are ideal for snapshots throughout the day on this side of the river.

Getting there: Ferry route 73 from St. Pauli Landungsbrücken

STEINWERDER VIEWPOINT

Walk from the St. Pauli jetties through the Old Elbe Tunnel towards Blohm + Voss. Next to the exit, to the left on the Elbe bank, is the Steinwerder viewpoint, an insider tip for visitors to Hamburg. The alternative for the way back, on workdays, is ferry route 75

Getting there: U3, S1, S2, S3 to St. Pauli Landungsbrücken

SEEMANNSHÖFT

The Hamburg harbour pilots’ station and nautical office is located on the Bubendey bank. HADAG ships moor not far away. Departing ships can be photographed from the pontoon with Hamburg and port as a backdrop.

Getting there: Ferry route 62

FINKENWERDER - RÜSCHPARK

Likewise on the southern Elbe bank is the Rüschpark with terraces and a viewing tower. HADAG ferries take you there by water. The jetty is located outside The Rilano Hotel Hamburg. It is just a few minutes’ walk from there.

Getting there: Ferry route: no. 62 to Finkenwerder, change onto ferry route no. 64.

TEUFELSBRÜCK

The jetty for HADAG ferries is located below the Jenischpark. The pontoon is also very popular because of its culinary offerings. It’s impossible to get closer to the water than here.

Getting there: Ferry route no. 64.

SÜLLBERG IN BLANKENESE

A five-star view from a 75-metre elevation, open to the public. The terrace is turned into a beer garden in the summer. When the weather is good, the snack pavilions are also open during
out-of-season weekends.

Getting there: S1, S11 to Blankenese, from there bus no. 48 to Krögers Treppe

WITTENBERGEN

Hamburg’s most attractive beach is located in a nature conservation area on the Lower Elbe in the district of Rissen. Here, you can already see the ships from far away and keep them in your camera’s sights for a long time.

Getting there: S1, S11 to Blankenese, from there bus no. 189 to Tinsdaler Kirchenweg

PORT TOUR

For maiden voyages, first calls and maritime celebrations, it is worth taking the additional guided tours by launch providers such as Abicht, Barkassen Meyer or others. Impressive perspectives can be enjoyed from the water, but the ships’ swell requires a steady hand.

Getting there: U3 to Baumwall or St. Pauli Landungsbrücken

EXPERIENCE THE REAL CRUISE FEELING DURING AN ON-BOARD TOUR!

Various tour programmes on cruise ships are possible in Hamburg on selected dates. If you wish, you can even sample the on-board cuisine or spa area. You will find all details plus registration info on the relevant liner’s website.

ON A MINI-CRUISE ON A TRADITIONAL SHIP

The preserved maritime traditions also include the fleet of historical museum ships, which will gladly take passengers, groups and charter guests for a tour through the port or on the Elbe. Fantastic perspectives on the ships moored at the quays open up from the water in the truest sense of the word. Additional tours and guided tours are also on offer for special occasions.
