Big Port Tour
Discover the city of Hamburg from the water and join us on a detour to the container port and the Elbphilharmonie. Fantastic photos guaranteed!
With FRS HanseFerry you can enjoy a relaxing trip through the Port of Hamburg and the River Elbe. From St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, which is the heart of Hamburg, we'll start our way downstream. Passing the fish market, which opens on Sundays at 4 a.m., we'll take you along the modern office buildings of Docklands, the cruise ship's terminal and the museum harbor with historical ships. On our way, we'll also see the container terminals, the pilot station and lots of more sights and attractions, until we arrive in Blankenese.
The beautiful and wealthy suburb developed out of a simple fisherman's village to a residential town of ship owners and captains located at the 77m high hillside of Süllberg. To experience the amazing view, you'll have to climb up the hill, while passing the popular and unique stairs quarter, various magnificent mansions and beautiful parks.
Guests may have a three, six or even nine hour stay to discover Blankenese with its mediterranean flair and scandinavic charme. Morover, you can enjoy the restaurants at Süllberg, in town, at the bank of the River or directly at the jetty "Op'n Bulln" until our ferry brings you back towards home.
On the return with our ship MS "Kleine Freiheit" we'll make a stopover in Teufelsbrück and at the container port at Burchardkai. There, our ship passes the biggest container ships worldwide, which are up and unloaded right next to the enormous dry docks of the shipyard Blohm & Voss, where large and small ships are built.
Befor returning to Landungsbrücken, the MS "Kleine Freiheit" will take you to the Elbphilharmonie, one of the newest cultural landmarks of Hamburg. You will also see the popular Michel, the sailing ship "Rickmer Rickmers" and the museum ship "Cap San Diego" until arriving back at bridge 8/9 at Landungsbrücken.
As an alternative to return to Hamburg by ferry, you are also able to take the Bus line 48 in Blankenese, called "Bergziege", which means mountain goat. The bus will take you to the subway station, from where you can make your way back to Hamburg. If you made use of our offer to bring your bicycle on board, you can of course ride the beautiful Elbe trail back to the city.
