The great HADAG harbour tour: the original and best. Since 1921.

Hamburg just wouldn’t be Hamburg without its port. Relaxing at a traditional pub and getting a feel for the city are just as much a part of the real Hamburg experience as a harbour tour. Visiting Hamburg without testing your sea legs is unthinkable!

So, hop on board and enjoy the ride. Our boats operate throughout the year, whatever the weather. The only way to get closer to the gateway to the world is by donning a captain’s uniform. During your tour, you will find out all about cruisers and containers, megaships and moorings, the Elbe and the Elbphilharmonie. The port has an intricate harmony of its own: it murmurs in Mandarin, speaks in Spanish and sometimes even storms in a squall. It is rough and ready in its rhythm, and has been for 840 years. The seedy dives that once existed alongside the river are now being replaced by hydrogen plants.

Welcome on board

We’ll soon teach you landlubbers a thing or two. Don’t worry though – this isn’t a boot camp. Let’s start with two simple words you really need to know: starboard and port. Master those and you needn’t worry about missing out because you’re looking the wrong way. Facing in the direction of travel, starboard is the right-hand side and port is the left. Anything else you need to know? Firstly, pleasure cruises are great fun. Secondly, hold on tight to your on-board snacks. Thirdly, the captain is always right. Now, keep your eyes peeled to discover sights that will take your breath away.
