Hamburg Cruise Center E.V. - Hamburg – the red carpet for cruise ships and passengers

"Ahoy there" from Cruise Shipping's Cradle

Hamburg is the cradle of cruise shipping! Hamburg itself is proving to be one of the favourite cruise destinations in Northern Europe. The city is notable for its Hanseatic charm and maritime flair, the Elbe and the Alster, the port and HafenCity, Speicherstadt and Fischmarkt. Traditional and modern exist here side by side, along with international bustle, outstanding shopping opportunities, an extensive cultural programme, and a vast choice of hotels. For centuries "Hamburg Gateway to the World" has been the watchword. That is not simply the by-line for this Hanseatic City, but everyday reality.

Something else making Hamburg so unique are its inhabitants. Anybody living in Hamburg loves "their" city. Hamburgians are truly proud to present the beauties of the city to their guests. A harbour round trip through Germany's largest seaport is a "must" on the visitor's programme and naturally takes in the cruise terminals. Arriving and departing cruise ships invariably receive a rapturous welcome.

More and more cruise passengers and connoisseurs are discovering the delights of Hamburg. That's reflected in the extraordinary increase in passenger numbers. Hamburg is consolidating its position as the fastest-growing German cruise port and will therefore continue to invest in expanding its terminal infrastructure.

Hamburg Cruise Center e.V. is powering the trend. Our members, including shipping lines, agents, port businesses, ship chandlers, restaurants and hotels, have joined us to make Hamburg one of the most popular cruise destinations in Europe.
