Lively city districts and many places of interest line themselves up along the banks of Hamburg’s Elbe, where water and urban life meet: from the Hafencity with its newest landmark, the Elbphilharmonie, through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Speicherstadt, the world-renowned St. Pauli pier and the fish market to the beaches of the Elbe in Ovelgönne and Blankenese. The southern bank of the Elbe shows the rough industrial romanticism of Hamburg Harbour and, together with Wilhelmsburg, Hamburg has Europe’s biggest river island, enlaced by remarkable waterways and forested areas.In addition, there are countless exciting maritime events directly on the water or close to it: classic events like the Hafengeburtstag (harbour birthday), romantic cruises during the Hamburg Cruise Days, musical highlights like the Elbjazz Festival and young, wild events like the art and music festival MS Dockville.
