Party mood: The 835th Harbour Anniversary

Hamburg, 15.05.2024

It is impossible to imagine our city without the harbour of Hamburg. Without it, our hotel would not even exist, as it was originally a sailor's home in the immediate vicinity of the piers. On 7th May, 1189, Emperor Frederick Barbarossa granted the people of Hamburg "freedom from customs duties for their ships on the Elbe river from the city to the North Sea". This opened the gateway to the world and our harbour was born.

To celebrate this historic event, numerous ships and showmen have been visiting our hanseatic city every year since 1977. But this year the event was even more special; the 835th Harbour Anniversary was celebrated over four days instead of the usual three.

From 9th May to 12th May 2024, you could stroll along the colorful harbor mile, enjoy free live music or marvel at the many ships that paid us a birthday visit.

But it wasn't just the ships that were the stars of the event. Various show highlights were sure to delight visitors, including the popular tugboat ballet, in which the captains skilfully danced their boats on the Elbe river. The "Elbe in Concert" anniversary show, with its performances, musical acts and spectacular fireworks display at the end, ensured a great atmosphere. The AIDA Cruises also returned on Saturday evening with their breathtaking drone illumination.

Those who wanted the best view of the action came to our Tower Bar. From there you could enjoy the 835th Harbour Anniversary to the fullest with a delicious cocktail in your hand, great service and good company. Would you also like to enjoy the 360° panoramic view over the harbour?
