Every two years, Hamburg celebrates a very special event directly on one of the most famous sights "Landungsbrücken" and the river Elbe. The big harbour festival is, without doubt, a magnet for locals and tourists. With a wide range of maritime and cultural highlights, thousands of visitors make their way to the harbour and watch the spectacle on land and on the water.
Experience the cruise ship parade, enjoy the laser- & light shows of the sea giants, stroll along the promenade and let yourself be carried away by the unique maritime flair!
A very special highlight awaits you in the evening hours. Simultaneously to the Cruise Days, the port of Hamburg and the sights along the river are bathed in a fascinating light. The Blue Port is a spectacular art project by the international, award-winning artist Michael Batz. Light installations let the harbour shine in a magical blue colour and offer beautiful views.
Experience this event from a bird's eye view directly from your room or our Skyline Bar 20up. If you prefer to get in touch with the cruise giants or if you would like to feast through countless delicacies alongside the harbour promenade, the "Landungsbrücken" can be reached by foot in just a few minutes.
