Moin, ahoy and good day!

This new edition of Maritime Hamburg presents the most beautiful, interesting and inspiring places, squares and paths from HafenCity via Landungsbrcken and St. Pauli even ranging as far as velgnne and Blankenese spotlighting numerous discoveries and surprises in the harbour and along the river Elbe.

The port of Hamburg and its more than 800-year-old history has shaped the city and given rise to its prosperity: ship-owners and shipbuilders, importers, exporters, coffee, tea and carpet merchants, shipyards, freight forwarders and many others established their global operations in line with the development and growth of the port. These connections from all over the world, as well as the visits of millions of sailors have made Hamburg a cosmopolitan and tolerant city. Today Hamburg is connected to 900 ports in 170 countries and there is a lot more to discover in the harbour and on the river Elbe than just giant container ships. Hamburg welcomes you enjoy the special atmosphere of Germanys largest port city. Be it for a few hours, a day or a navy blue weekend, Hamburg Tourist Board in cooperation with the mare-editors have compiled the best tips and recommendations, things worth knowing, maps and photographs which will take you on tours to the unique sights of our city.

Hamburg for beginnerS

A first view of maritime Hamburg is offered by the under- ground line U3 leaving from the town hall towards Barm-bek (left window seat in the direction of travel). Get off at Baumwall, passing the building of the Gruner+Jahr media company and on to the Michel 1.

The baroque church of St. Michaelis is the principal landmark of Hamburg. With a height of 132 meters, its tower is visible from afar for returning sailors and offers a magnificent panorama of the harbour from its observa-tion deck (453 steps). Through the Portuguese quarter 2

with its bars and restaurants, we continue on to St. Pauli Landungsbrcken 3 with the dome of the Alter Elb-tunnel 4. In 1911 it was opened for wagons and port wor-kers, with two tubes running 24 meters deep under the Elbe. It is also open for cars.

The waterfront, simultaneously a flood protection system, is Hamburgs busiest pedestrian area with the museum ships Rickmer Rickmers 5, a tall ship built in 1896, and the general cargo vessel Cap San Diego 6. Barges and ferries depart from here to their harbour cruises 7 to the container terminals, to the Koehlbrand Bridge 8 and to the shipyards or to the old warehouse district, Speicherstadt 9, which has been nominated as a World Heritage site. Anyone who is still curious to further explore it has not got far to go. Today these red-brick Gothic style warehouse buildings are no longer solely used for storage but have also been opened up for other purposes. Awesome is the Miniatur Wunder-land 10, the largest model railway in the world: 930 trains on 13 kilometres of tracks. Visitors can marvel at 335,000 lights, 215,000 fi- gures, the Grand Can- yon, Las Vegas, Swit-zerland and Scandi-navia, including the
