    The inland port in Hamburg is the oldest part of the port of Hamburg, which is still used as a port facility. It lies in front of the Nikolaifleetmündung and is separated in the west by the Niederbaumbrücke from the low harbor. The northern edge are the quays, which formed the first quay facilities of the inland port from the 14th century, and the Otto Sill bridge, which spans the junction of the Alsterfleet with the Schaartor lock with the elevated railway viaduct. South is the Kehrwieder. The inland port has only one pier on the quay, which can be accessed only by inland vessels, and a quay on Kehrwieder and serves mainly as a western exit of the customs channel. At times it is the location of the river boat church.The inland port was extended in the 16th century with an upstream roadstead, when the main transshipment still took place in the inner city of Nikolaifleet. With the construction of the Hamburg ramparts at the beginning of the 17th century, the port was incorporated into the city with the creation of a tree wall. Due to the expansion of goods traffic and the concomitant increase in ship sizes, this upstream port section became increasingly important, but at the turn of the 18th century it had to be extended by the Niederhafen into the Elbe. Until 1880, it served as a sailing ship port, then the sailors were relocated to Kleine Grasbrook to free the inland port as part of the free port development as passage of the customs channel. A last relic from the time of the port handling is the New Crane east of the High Bridge. In 1858 this iron heavy-duty crane with integrated weighing device replaced a wooden crane erected in 1568 in the same place.

    Germany's second largest inland port
    The barge is considered the most ecological means of transport. No other mode of transport is able to provide the same transport service in such an environmentally friendly way. The Port of Hamburg is the second largest inland port in Germany. Around 10,000 inland vessels docked at around 100 moorings in 2015 and transported around 12.4 million tonnes of cargo. Daily departures from Hamburg from transports on the Elbe and the connected channels into the interior. On the Central and Upper Elbe there are regular connections to Magdeburg, Aken, Torgau, Riesa, Dresden and even to the Czech Republic to Děčin, Ústí nad Labem and Lovosice. Along the Lower Elbe can u.a. Brunsbüttel, Cuxhaven and Glückstadt are served. On the Elbe-Seitenkanal with the connection to the Mittelland Canal, there is also the connection to Braunschweig, Haldensleben, Hanover and Minden as well as to the Ruhr area and the inland ports on the Rhine, Main, Moselle and Neckar. Also to Berlin regular transports on the waterways take place.

    There is always something to admire here. Of course, a lot of things are a bit exaggerated for the tourists, but it is still nice;)

    The Niederhafen is a part of the Port of Hamburg situated on the northern bank of the Elbe, which has been growing since the beginning of the 18th century as a harbor extension in front of the barrier protecting the inland harbor into the Norderelbe. He was Hamburg's first Elbe port and is now used as a marina and investor for harbor cruise ships. It lies between the quay walls of the Vorsetzen and the Sandtorhöft of the large Grasbrooks, today's HafenCity and extends in the west over the Überseebrücke up to the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken. Together with the inland port he was until the construction of Sandtorhafen 1861 the most important cargo handling center.

    The Mississippi Queen is a passenger ship in the port of Hamburg, which is modeled on the Mississippi rear-wheel steamer of the same name. It is used by the shipping company Captain Prusses, among other things, for harbor tours. The Mississippi Queen is, alongside the Louisiana Star of about the same size, one of two "paddle steamer" in the port of Hamburg.The Mississippi Queen is located on the Überseebrücke not far from Cap San Diego. It measures a good 62 and a width of 11.45 meters from bow to stern, the two chimneys reach a height of 18 meters from the underside of the fuselage. The ship is not powered by a steam engine, but by two 520 HP Deutz MWM marine diesel engines.
    The Mississippi Queen, used as an excursion and event ship as well as for harbor tours, consists of a lower (Chattanooga Lounge) and an upper deck (Queens Lounge) in typical white paint and offers space for up to 550 passengers.

    The port of Hamburg is the second largest inland port in Germany. Around 10,000 inland vessels moored at the around 100 berths provided for them and transported millions of tons of cargo. Transports on the Elbe and the connected canals to the inland start from Hamburg every day.

    The first plants were the wharves on the Vorsetzen, as these were no longer sufficient after a few years, 1767 a row of Duckdalben was rammed into the Elbe as anchorage in the stream, where the large sailors could make. The transhipment took place on water, the goods were transhipped to smaller ships, Ewer and Schuten and transported across the numerous flats and waterways to the stores and markets of the city. Due to the confusing shipping traffic in this part of the port of Niederhafen also got the name Rummelhafen. 1795 was followed by a second row of dolphins, which reached to Jonas, the bastion of John the former city wall.In its heyday the Niederhafen was subdivided into several parts of the harbor: the log cabin harbor, directly on the Vorsetzen in front of the Baumwall, named after a building at the harbor entrance, the Georgiushafen on the Kehrwieder, named after the bastion Georgius of the Hamburger Wallanlagen, which was given to the Kehrwieder, the Interior and the outer Brandenburg Harbor and the Inner and Outer Hullhafen. In the west, the interior and the exterior joined Jonashafen.At the site of the former log building harbor is today the City-Sportboothafen. The investors in the eastern part of the Überseebrücke are still called Brandenburger Hafen.
