St Pauli Piers Tours

St Pauli Piers
The impressive St Pauli Landungsbrücken (St Pauli Piers) is one of Hamburg's most popular attractions. Built in 1907, the 2,257-foot (688-meter) landungsbrücke (“pier”) is composed of several floating pontoons, which are accessible from land by 10 movable bridges. Once mooring points for large passenger steamships, today the pontoons are mostly used by sightseeing boats. The structure also features two towers of differing heights, plus several copper domes.

The Landungsbrücken is located in Hamburg’s St Pauli district, between the lower harbor and the fish market, on the banks of the Elbe river. It forms a central transportation hub, with streetcar (S-Bahn), underground train (U-Bahn), and ferry stations all stopping here. It’s also a major tourist magnet, with numerous restaurants and departure points for harbor cruises. (A boat tour is considered the best way to see Hamburg.) With the water on one side, and colorful souvenir shops and quaint fish restaurants serving North Sea shrimp on the other side, it’s easy to forget that you are walking on a floating platform.

Practical Info

The piers are located in the St Pauli area of Hamburg, between the lower harbor and the Fischmarkt (Fish Market), on the banks of the Elbe river. At the western end of the Landungsbrücken, there’s an entrance to the Old Elbe tunnel. The eastern end of the structure is marked by the Pegelturm (water level tower). Halfway up the tower, there is a water level indicator built into the wall, which indicates the current stage of the tides.
