Hamburg: 1.5-Hour Evening Harbor and Speicherstadt Cruise

1. Hamburg: 1.5-Hour Evening Harbor and Speicherstadt Cruise

Admire Hamburg’s harbor-side attractions sparkling at night, marvel at the illuminated Speicherstadt District, and see impressive container ships up-close aboard a 1.5-hour evening cruise featuring live commentary from a German-speaking guide and an exclusive stop at the iconic Elbphilharmonie. Start your nighttime harbor adventure on land as you cross the famous "Überseebrücke" bridge to reach the pier where you will board a traditional Hamburger boat referred to as a Barkasse. Listen as your captain decides on which route the boat will take based on weather conditions, the water tides, or, if for example, a really exciting and interesting container ship or a special boat is visiting the harbor. Set off and glide into the narrow waterways of the largest warehouse district in the world known as Speicherstadt. Take in the stunning architecture of buildings standing on timber-pile foundations and oak logs beautifully lit up. Sit back and relax as you go past Hafen City. Explore the open decks and feel the cooling sea breezes as you wait for perfect photo opportunities from the boat’s many vantage points. Cruise past rows of massive container ships as the boat makes its way into St. Pauli’s Pier and the shining Hamburg Port. Learn the history of the many important landmarks from your German-speaking expert guide. As your trip comes to an end, disembark right in front of the Elbphilharmonie or you can choose to get off back at where the cruise initially took off.

Was a super nice boat trip, it was very informative and also very personable and funny. Was a real cool speaker. You should only dress warmly. It also felt like the boat trip was a little different for each group, nothing was rattled off.

It was an incredibly great tour with Jürgen! We were allowed to look behind the scenes of St. Pauli and the history of the Reeperbahn and really enjoyed the tour and the evening thanks to Jürgen's fantastic guidance!!

The tour with Matze was very interesting and above all entertaining! He has a lot of humor and gave us many insights into the history of the Reeperbahn. We would book again at any time!

It was particularly exciting on Friday evening ))))) The guide's name was Gan (or Can) and he told it very interestingly!

Awesome! Great experience, won’t ever forget it. Hamburg is just beautiful and you ship crew was very funny
