Glückstadt is located on the north bank of the Elbe, about 50 km from the mouth, 16 km southwest of Itzehoe, on the southern edge of Schleswig-Holstein. The urban area had to be wrested by building the dike on the Elbe and is almost at sea level. In the southern half of the city, the Herzhorner Rhin and the Kremper Rhin merge to form the Rhin and flow into the Elbe with the black water at the outer harbor.
