Sightseeing and harbour tour
COMBINATION: LINE A city tour & 1-hour Harbour Boat Tour on the Elbe
or LINE A city tour & 2-hour Harbour Boat Tour XXL on the Elbe
Combine the LINE A city tour day pass with a 1-hour or 2 hour harbour cruise by the Abicht Shipping Company. Hop off the LINE A double-decker bus at St. Pauli Landungsbrücken (Harbour) and explore the River Elbe by boat. Once you’ve seen the port of Hamburg you simply return to the bus stop and wait for the next bus to come along and continue the LINE A city tour.
The route of the harbour cruises depend on tides (low tide and high tide in the Port of Hamburg), therefore the Abicht skippers decide before the cruise if the way through the canals of the historic Speicherstadt is possible.
Among the Abicht fleet you’ll find various boat types, such as passenger ships, comfortable and spacious lounge ships and the MS Louisiana Star, a stern-wheeler. On board of the vessel there is German live commentary available and English commentary can be obtained via the “Rainer Abicht” audio guide app, which can be downloaded on your tablet or smart phone from the PLAY or APP Store.
