The Port of Hamburg – gateway to the world
Hamburg and the surrounding area
Even a short walk from the Baumwall fortifications to the Landungsbrücken (landing stages) is an inspiring sight. You get a great impression of the port, with the muffled horns of the ships sailing by, the seagulls, the wind and the view out to the great museum ships, such as the Rickmer Rickmers. And if you fancy going shopping in St. Pauli on a Sunday morning then the Fischmarkt is just the thing for you. From 5am at Hamburg’s Fischmarkt the vendors are hard at work pitching their wares. It’s a spectacle not to be missed.
