The Free Hanseatic City of Hamburg at the River Elbe belongs to the most beautiful port cities. The port of Hamburg is the biggest sea port in Germany and amongst the twenty biggest container ports in the world. The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea is based in the Free Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Before or after the sailing trip with the Tall Ship Mercedes we recommend visiting the city centre of Hamburg. The River Alster in Hamburg and the newly created Hafen City with the Elbphilharmonie is also worth visiting.
During a day sail or an evening sail in Hamburg, the Tall Ship Mercedes passes the jetties, the concert hall Elbphilharmonie and the big cruise ships moored in Hamburg. The sailing trip with the Tall Ship Mercedes continues heading north along the Elbe to Blankenese a suburb of Hamburg. You have a magnificent view of the wonderful villas along the Elbchaussee and the picturesque Blankenese. Portside the biggest container ships in the world sail by to load and unload their overseas consignments in the port of Hamburg.
