Port (Hafen), Hamburg: 5 reviews and 12 photos
Hamburg is such a rainy city, the citizens truly relish any sunny weather to be had, and the hundreds of summer sidewalk cafes are a testament to the citizens' love of the outdoors. Should you find yourself with spare time and fair weather, it's reccomended to take advantage of the myriad of cafes and terrace restaurants easily found all along the River Elbe. For those who are the sportive type and interested in a tiny bit of excercise, descend the upper city to the riverbanks and back for your restaurant outing. For those not up to the climb and descend and interested in something more leisurely, simply go S/U Bahn Landungsbrucken , descend stairs to the pier and take Schiff (ferry) #62- Finkenwerder to any stop along the Elbe.
For the sportive/fitness route (!): S Bahn 1 or 3 to Königstrasse, Behnstrasse exit. on Behnstrasse turn left walk for approximately 2 blocks towards the river horizon. You will encounter descending steps to the river flats of the city. Once at the bottom head in the direction of Landungsbrucken (left).
For the leisurely route: S 1/3 or U3 Bahn to Landungsbrücken, then at the pier take #62 Finkenwerder and exit at any of the 4 stops after. The fair is only euro 1,65 each way, otherwise check by the HVV ticket office on the pier to see if the Schiff (ferry) is covered by any day ticket or tourist pass you have for public transport. Most ferries are equipped with ticket machines on board, but to be safe (and to avoid 40 euro ticket fines by tarrif police), you can purchase your ticket at a machine directly on the boarding dock.
