From craft beer tastings to scenic boat cruises, there’s plenty to do in Hamburg. Bike through different neighborhoods, see some street art, and venture out to the countryside—here’s how to spend three days in this northern German port city.
St. Pauli Piers
St. Pauli, Hamburg, 20359
The piers are located in the St. Pauli area of Hamburg, between the lower harbor and the Fischmarkt (Fish Market), on the banks of the Elbe river. At the western end of the Landungsbrücken, there’s an entrance to the Old Elbe tunnel. The eastern end of the structure is marked by the Pegelturm (water level tower). Halfway up the tower, there is a water level indicator built into the wall, which indicates the current stage of the tides.
Adriá was an excellent and engaging guide. He was thoroughly prepared with pictures supporting the historical places we visited and could answer our questions. That makes it sound boring, but it was very interesting and entertaining.
