About Hamburg Hafen port
Hamburg has a long history of Cruises and ferries operating from the city port. ParkVia.com offer parking options when you are starting your cruise from here or if you are taking a ferry for a period of time. We aim to show carpark options which are the best priced and most secure locations around the port. To get an idea of prices for your long stay parking, enter in the dates you wish to park there and see what is available. Prices may vary throughout the season, as at peak times it gets quite busy. Pre booking is also advisable for the same reason. The car parks can get full quickly during cruise season.
With this in mind for our customers searching for car parking at the Port of Hamburg we have created the Hamburg Cruise Calendar 2013.
Hamburg Hafen port Information
Even though it is about 70 miles (110 km) from the coast on the river Elbe, the Port of Hamburg is considered a sea port since it is able to handle large ocean-going ships. It is the largest port in Germany, the third-largest in Europe (after the Port of Antwerp and Rotterdam), and the eighth largest in the world. Dating back to 1189, the Port of Hamburg celebrates its anniversary on 7th May with an annual festival.
There are two cruise terminals in the Port of Hamburg: the ‘Cruise Terminal Grasbrook’ in the HafenCity and the new ‘Cruise Terminal Altona’. The new terminal caters for the increasing popularity for cruise liners at the Port of Hamburg and was opened in the summer of 2009. Altona is an attractive location for passengers due to its close proximity to the city centre.
