    A stay in Hamburg, without having been in one of the many covered restaurants and cafes at the jetties, has not been a real Hamburg visit. Here you can also buy delicious fish sandwiches in one of the many fish stalls and enjoy.

    The St. Pauli Landungsbrücken are a large dock for passenger ships on the northern edge of the Port of Hamburg. The Landungsbrücken are located in Hamburg's St. Pauli district between Niederhafen and Hamburg's fish market on the Elbe.

    Without having been at the jetties, the harbor tour is not complete. A coming and going of ferries, barges and other harbor cruises. For a long time a meeting place for millions.

    Here you can watch the hustle and bustle of the harbor - the many ships that cross on the Elbe seemingly haphazard and yet all have a destination. The many tourists, with whom it seems to behave the same way;)

    The Landungsbrücken in Hamburg are an absolute crowd puller. Here you can visit the adjacent Elbtunnel, the adjacent Speicherstadt and the Elbphilharmonie. Also harbor tours are on offer. Along the jetties there are small gastronomic offers that leave nothing to be desired. A real highlight!

    On the shore side of the jetties, the road runs along the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken. At the western end is located in a separate building, the northern entrance to the Old Elbe tunnel. The eastern end forms the level tower. Halfway up the tower on the side of the river Elbe, a water level indicator is placed at the top of the wall, informing about the current status of the tide. In its second function, the level tower is also clock tower and clock tower. The dial is visible from afar. The bell sounds at full and half hours.
    The jetties together with a metro, a S-Bahn station and buses form a transport hub in Hamburg. They are also a tourist attraction, as from here an interesting view of the Norderelbe, opposite shipyards and docks and the Elbphilharmonie exists and harbor tours can be undertaken.
    The first jetty was built in 1839. It served as a dock for steamers, which could easily be filled with coal here. In addition, one did not want to take any risks with these large ships due to their coal firing and the fire danger and to ensure a sufficient safety margin. The current pier, built starting in 1907, consists of floating pontoons accessible from the mainland via nine movable bridges. The 688 m long pier was originally used by the passenger steamers of the Überseelinien as a landing stage. Among other things put on here the big HAPAG liners.
    The old pier was destroyed during the Second World War at Operation Gomorrah, so that today's pontoons were built during the reconstruction from 1953 to 1955. The last part destroyed in the war between the bridges 2 and 3 was only rebuilt in 1976. As part of a modernization begun in 1999, the roofing and the lighting were redesigned. In connection with this measure, the replacement of bridge 7 is provided.
    Today, only harbor harbors of the HADAG, harbor cruise ships and barges, passenger ships in the Unterelbedienst and the catamarans to Helgoland run to the jetty. Daily commute from here also ships to the opposite theater in the port of Hamburg.
    Opposite the eastern end of the jetties, the Überseebrücke is located almost in its alignment on an independent pontoon system, this was formerly the feeder for passenger ships to and from abroad.

    The Hamburger Hafenbarkasse was the workhorse in the Port of Hamburg. They had their flowering from 1920 to 1960. Who knows the movie "Great Freedom Number 7" with Hans Albers, may remember a scene, as thousands of workers with barges of "Blohm & Voss" come across the Elbe. This time is over. With the triumphal march of the container they became superfluous for the port operation and most know them only remodeled for harbor cruises. Due to their flat design, they are still under the bridges when sailing in the canals at high tide. That can sometimes be tight, but mostly it still works.

    The typical Hamburg harbor barge is an open motor ship with a small deckhouse only in the foremost area of the hull (typically around the first quarter of its length). The ratio of length to width is usually greater than 4: 1. Hamburg harbor barges were built in lengths of just over 10 meters to above 20 meters. The engine is located amidships in a box behind the deckhouse. The hull and deckhouse are constructed in riveted or welded steel construction.

    Previous tasks:
    • Towing of barges and bugs of smaller vessels
    • Fast transport of small quantities of general cargo within the port
    • Transportation of supplies to ships in the port

    Personal transport:
    • to ships that moored to dolphins in the middle of a harbor rather than the quay wall
    • as a ferry and as a feeder for workers of shipyards and shipping companies
    • for taxi services ("Wasserdroschke")

    • Transport of documents and post ("post office barge")

    The floating dock - called "Landungsbrücken" - is 700 meters long. From this water "station" the harbor cruises, the harbor ferries and the HADAG steamer start to Finkenwerder, Oevelgönne and Blankenese. Even imposing luxury cruisers set here from time to time.
    Whoever stands here - the water on one side, colorful souvenir shops with Waterkant memories and rustic fish restaurants with fresh cutter or North Sea crabs on the other side - easily forgets that he is swimming on floating ground. The first pontoons were built in 1839 and served steamboats as a dock, because here you could store the coal they needed for their drive. Likewise, the fire in their boilers was a far enough away source of danger as a possible source of danger. From 1907 to 1909, the plant was extremely enlarged - and severely damaged during World War II. Today's investor area exists since the reconstruction from 1953 to 1955, and for a cinema thriller drove already a car in extreme speed on the bridges. The tower on the east side of the water station displays the water level in addition to the time and beats the ship's bell every half hour.
