Harwich - Hamburg ship

by canttaketheskyfromme

Is there a ferry service still operating between Harwich and Hamburg? I can find no mention of it existing anymore, but no mention of it being withdrawn either. Flying just seems pointless for such a short journey but the train costs a fortune.

RE: Harwich - Hamburg ship

Hiya, I found this info on an Essex page:

The Harwich-Hamburg route is operated by Scandinavian Seaways.
Its ships are Prince of Scandinavia, 1,539 passengers, 379 cars; and Admiral of Scandinavia, 1142 passengers, 290 cars. Journey time is 18 hours.
Address: Scandinavian Seaways, Scandinavia House, Refinery Road, Harwich CO12 4QG.
Telephone: Bookings 0990 333 111, Brochures 0990 333 666

But when I checked the Scandinavian Seaways site they don't show a Harwich-Hamburg route. Probably best to give the phone number a call.

Oh and also, the budget airline GermanWings sometimes have very cheap flights to Hamburg.

Here's the link to the German Wings website if you have no luck with the ferry!

To my knowledge this ferry was withdrawn from service in November.
It was in the news that thus there are no ferry connections UK to Germany anymore.

Harwich - Esbjerg (Denmark is still sailing), but you have to drive some 4 hours down to Hamburg.


RE: RE: Harwich - Hamburg ship

by JakeInTheBox

Harwich-Hamburg was closed three or four years ago, maybe that's why you didn't find any info. Harwich-Cuxhaven was the replacement but closed end of 2005, too. The best option is indeed to fly, but make sure you get a flight to Hamburg (HAM) _or_ are prepared for a one hour bus drive if flying with Ryanair ("Hamburg-Lübeck", which is Lübeck, not Hamburg).

Such a shame they axe the route, I travelled on the old Scandinavian Seaways ship once years ago, and had a really good crossing. I did check out GermanWings, and found some great deals - it's just flying is so uncivilized way to travel, I wish there was something that could rival it for low cost, I found flight availiability for next to nothing, whilst the train for a decent sleeper or ICE is near 200 euro!

Thanks for the info, guys:) Looks like GW will get my custom this time!

Glad to have been of help. I thought GW would probably be the best (only??) option - I am taking that route to Germany in April, so come back and tell us how it went ok? :)

Travel Tips for Hamburg

Enjoy a Meal in the Flats Next to the River Elbe

by ericaj.

Hamburg is such a rainy city, the citizens truly relish any sunny weather to be had, and the hundreds of summer sidewalk cafes are a testament to the citizens' love of the outdoors. Should you find yourself with spare time and fair weather, it's reccomended to take advantage of the myriad of cafes and terrace restaurants easily found all along the River Elbe. For those who are the sportive type and interested in a tiny bit of excercise, descend the upper city to the riverbanks and back for your restaurant outing. For those not up to the climb and descend and interested in something more leisurely, simply go S/U Bahn Landungsbrucken , descend stairs to the pier and take Schiff (ferry) #62- Finkenwerder to any stop along the Elbe.

For the sportive/fitness route (!): S Bahn 1 or 3 to Königstrasse, Behnstrasse exit. on Behnstrasse turn left walk for approximately 2 blocks towards the river horizon. You will encounter descending steps to the river flats of the city. Once at the bottom head in the direction of Landungsbrucken (left).

For the leisurely route: S 1/3 or U3 Bahn to Landungsbrücken, then at the pier take #62 Finkenwerder and exit at any of the 4 stops after. The fair is only euro 1,65 each way, otherwise check by the HVV ticket office on the pier to see if the Schiff (ferry) is covered by any day ticket or tourist pass you have for public transport. Most ferries are equipped with ticket machines on board, but to be safe (and to avoid 40 euro ticket fines by tarrif police), you can purchase your ticket at a machine directly on the boarding dock.

Small Shopping Mall

by chris.hh about Kaufrausch

"Kaufrausch" is very a small "shopping mall" in Eppendorf next to U3 Eppendorfer Baum. It is situated in a city house and comprises some cute stores and a cafe. You find dessous, hair bands, fashion, bags and accessories. Not a budget tip but very nice selection of individual offers. Very cute, worth a visit if you are around. There's also a small cafe. The store just celebrated 25th anniversary - so kind of an institution.

Fleetfahrten - a tour through the city canals

by globetrott

Fleetfahrten is something completely different from the Grosse Hafenrundfahrt, because you will go in smaller boats through the small city-canals of Hamburg including the old Speicherstadt. There is only 1 place where these tours will start : at the place , where the Feuerschiff is docked !
You will go also through Nikolai-fleet with the old houses of Deichstrasse (my 1st picture) you will pass by "Das Schiff" - it is a theatre-ship with daily performances.
These tours will take about 2 hours
the price for the ticket is 14 euros
for holders of Hamburg-Card it is just 11,50 euros !

Walk Underground to Elbe River

by freddie18

Yes! cross the Elbe River by walking through the underground tunnel which is approximately a kilometer long. It was but a tunnel and when you reach the end, you will experience the panoramic view across the river, the city, the port and the shipyard called Steinwerder. I was told by my host, who willingly served as our tour guide thoughout our journey, that the tunnel was originally built to serve as a faster access of shipyard workers going to their place of work in Steinwerder. I have seen local people walking in groups which I can say that they are headed to work and some tourist who eventually take pictures. Cars and certain vehicles are allowed to pass the tunnel at certain times from Monday to Friday, but pedestrians are permitted to use it at all times. I would recommend take a walk to this underground tunnel, even for once and I assure you, there will be no regrets.

water carrier - Hans Hummel

by hundertmorgen

100 times in Hamburg: following the example of bears and cows in Berlin and Zurich, there are now 100 figures of Hamburg’s most famous water carrier, Hans Hummel in the city centre.

Until October of 2004, the 1.82-metre-high and 240-kg-heavy figures made from glass-fibre-reinforced plastic will be populating the area between the Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) and Alter Wall. The original Hamburg character is to serve as advertising for his home town in the form of a plastic. 43 banks, insurance companies, hotels and retailers from the Hanseatic city have provided sponsorship for the figure. Each figure was designed individually by an artist. “An enrichment of the city” says Henning Albers, boss of City Management, who is not only the author of the idea but is also sponsoring 15 of the figures.
