Daily departures
Beautiful evening cruise to the historic and illuminated Speicherstadt and through the sea of lights of the Port of Hamburg. The route is tide-dependent (low and high tide in the Port of Hamburg), so our experienced boatmen decide before or during the trip whether it is possible to sail through the canals of the historic Speicherstadt.

Please report to our harbour cruise pavilion (kiosk) at the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, Brücke 1 at the top of the promenade, before the respective departure. Our staff will be happy to tell you which vessel of our fleet we will be using for the evening lights cruise and where the ship’s departure point is.

For the major maritime events in Hamburg, such as the Hamburg Port Anniversary or the Hamburg Cruise Days and New Year’s Eve, we offer interesting evening cruises as an alternative.

The tickets are so-called OPEN TICKETS, which are not fixed to a specific date, but entitle the holder to take part in all light cruises (for departure times, see above).

The facades of the historic Speicherstadt, which was illuminated by the artist Michael Batz in 2001 and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2015, as well as the sea of lights at night of one of the largest ports in the world, form the constantly changing backdrop of our unique light cruise, which will inspire you.

The Port of Hamburg is an open seaport and therefore tide-dependent. For this reason, it is not possible to sail the canals of the historic Speicherstadt at all times.

St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, Brücke 1 at the top of the promenade (pavilion) as well as St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, Brücke 4, directly at the bottom of the water.

For further information and comprehensive personal advice, also for your private or business events exclusively on one of our ships, please contact our event team.

AHOI – we look forward to seeing you!

Our passenger ships MS RIVER STAR and MS HAMBURG as well as our stern wheeler ship MS LOUISIANA STAR can be reached barrier-free via a gangway and have appropriate sanitary facilities. Due to the conditions on site, we cannot tell you in advance exactly at which times the above-mentioned ships will be used for the harbour tour (no fixed departure times). Our luxury launches as well as our traditional launch are not accessible without barriers.
