Harbour cruises

by schmechi

Is there any offeror you'd recommend for making a harbour cruise? And how much do they cost?

Re: Harbour cruises

by globetrott

Linie 62 is a ship from St.Pauli Landungsbrücken to Finkenwerder that goes through a big part of the port and it is part of the bus- and metrosystem of Hamburg,
And that is included in the Hamburgcard
or a dayticket
---
when taking a harbourcruise you also see some of the locks and special places and will get some infos as well, that might be interesting as well but for a first impression #62 is fine and will take you also to Ovelgoenne with several vintage-ships directely where #62 is landing.
Take a look at my Hamburg- and Ovelgoenne-page for more infos !

Re: Harbour cruises

This is a good link for a boat tour on the Alster lake (not harbour). There are many tourist ships going around but one only historic ship. Price is similar (around 9 to 10 Euro). And it departs also from Jungfernstieg. You can get into the engine room and ask questions. Very nice and not these platic tourist boats.

As for the harbour I recommend the Hedi boat to you. As far as I remember you once asked about literature tips. Hedis is kind of a party boat but with some culutre events - sometimes also in connection with literature, poetry etc. Should be perferct for you if their date fit with yours...
www.frauhedi.de

Here you find some boat tours with a certain focus. I never did them but they should be better than the tourist trips. I once did an usual tour and did not like it very much. It waw interesting to get through the harbour but info was not good, I thought. Just dates and numbers and some stupid jokes. So check this:

This is rather with an ecological topic:

Have a great time,
Chris.

If you take a harbour trip, take the small boas (Barkassen), and make sure they pass te Speicherstadt. That's the historical part which I enjoy most.

Travel Tips for Hamburg

There's more to Hamburg than the Reeperbahn

by alza

That's a bit of a joke, but I wasn't there long enough to know everything about this lively city, and I *was* staying in Sankt Pauli near the Reeperbahn so that's what I saw the most of.

But I also loved walking around the Rathausmarkt, the University area (at Theodor-Heutss Platz), and going for a boat ride on the Aussenalster. This is the city's ancient remparts. The Aussenalster is a wide water basin to the north of another stretch of water called Binnenalster. Aussenalster is full of sailboats. During the boat ride, you'll see beautiful parks and gardens on the West Bank.

I didn't eat at restaurants much in Hamburg because street food is everywhere and GREAT!!! I love being in a place where I can eat when I want and where I always find something tempting and tasty, on the run. Well, that's Hamburg.

The pic is at the Binnenalster water basin, by the Aussenalsterarkade. The Rathaus is in the background. The whole area is laid-back and very charming. Arne, the guy I met at the Kogge hotel-bar. But that's another story. Everything's a fond memory.

Swimming

by chris.hh

There are two very nice indoor swimming pools in Hamburg:

Holthusenbad, U3 Kellinghusenstraße
is very nice, close to U3 Kellinghusenstraße. It has a pool, whirlpool, cool pool, a pool where they are doing waves every half hour and a heated outdoor pool (whole year). And a big sauna area.
http://www.baederland.de/s/baeder_detail.php?bid=12&pic=1
1,5 hours cost about 7 Euro - but worth the prize if you like swimming and a break in between sightseeing. Also nice for children.

Kaifu Bad,
Hohe Weide 15, Eimsbüttel
I have not been here but it looks similar like the above, also with outdoorpool throughout the year.
http://www.baederland.de/s/baeder_detail.php?bid=26&pic=1
About 5 Euro per day.

Bartholomäusstr. 95, Barmbek
Also I have not been in this one, but it looks very nice from images I have seen. As far as I know, in this bath no children are allowed exept family-swimming dates.
http://www.baederland.de/s/baeder_detail.php?bid=3&pic=2
About 9 Euro per day.

Outdoor swimming:
Stadtparksee, Südring 5b
Do you like swimming in natural lakes? Then this might be a nice tip to cool down in summer. I love the atmosphere here. There is also an open air barbecue place and you can have drinks (also without going for a swim a nice spot in summer evenings).
http://www.baederland.de/s/baeder_detail.php?bid=11
About 2,70 per day

Traditional beercellar and brewery

by yooperprof about Gröninger Haus Brauerei

Traditional Hamburg beer-cellar with great atmosphere. Also a restaurant, but I didn't come here for the food. The beer is a rich, creamy pilsener, smooth, with a toasty aftertaste. Said to be one of the best beers available in north Germany.

Eat Well at the Christmas markets

by yooperprof about various stalls with excellent hot food

Not a particular restaurant (or stall) recommendation per se - just a general comment that you'll eat well and cheaply at the wonderful Christmas markets in Hamburg. The one I kept on coming back to was along the Jungfernstieg, facing the Binnenalster. Great variety at these holiday markets: fish, bratwurst, potato pancakes, italian and polish and turkish specialities. . . I could have eaten here every night without running out of choices. Those potato pancakes can't be beat!

Check out the SPEICHERSTADT...

by miaou

Check out the SPEICHERSTADT WAREHOUSES. Built in 1885-1910, the structure has been kept the way it was. And believe it or not, these warehouses are still in use today - you can see them hauling goods. Free access.
