MS Louisiana Star

stern wheeler

Nostalgic: the four chimneys are smoking, the paddle wheel is burbling and the steam whistle is howling. Whoever strolls along the shore of the Elbe cannot miss this stern wheeler and one of the most beautiful event ships of Europe, the Louisiana Star!

The flagship of the Elbe shipping company “Abicht“ is one of the most popular charter locations in the Port of Hamburg. Along with its galleries, arches and columns the Louisiana Star exudes an opulent Southern Dixie atmosphere, which is also reflected under deck by red carpets, wide stairs and polished brass.

Elegantly curved staircases lead up to the upper lounge including a bar and the direct access to the large outdoor deck. Feel invited to stroll in the open rotunda with a view on the stage and dance floor. You won’t be able to miss any of the featured musicals, dances, artistry or animations, thanks to their transmissions on flat screens.

The kitchen presents a special spectacle with its unique lifting buffet table. Up to 500 people can be accommodated on board, the facility is barrier-free.
