Bike Touring Highlight
From the harbor bridge you have beautiful views of the harbor and the Elbe.
Architecturally, the 106 m long bridge sets an example. The pylon construction with braced steel cables protrudes far. Visible to everyone, it marks the city's new turn towards the river. The Elbe is now within walking distance of the city center. You can walk from the observation deck and the seating terraces directly over the water to the Werfthal peninsula. On the bridge you can experience the city and its location on the Elbe slope from a completely new perspective. Walks on the Werf peninsula become eventful round tours. You can also walk on the bridge when it gets dark - its lighting makes the walk a special pleasure.

The Menzer-Werft-Platz is located on the Elbe peninsula, which can be reached from the Geesthacht city center via the pedestrian bridge. With the Stadtbarkasse Piep rocking in the harbor basin and the salon ship Aurora in the foreground, there is already a beautiful view of the sunset over the Elbe.
On the other side of the peninsula there is a magnificent view over the Elbe and the wide Elbe meadows.

Below the seating terraces at the harbor, the city of Geesthacht has created a bee trail with flower strips and nesting possibilities u.a. for different wild bees. In a showcase you can watch honey bees in honeycomb construction. The aim is to show by example how gardens can easily be used to treat insects.
