The Port of Hamburg is one of the most important sights in Hamburg and is the second largest port in Europe after Rotterdam and one of the largest ports in the world. It was opened on May 7th, 1189 and celebrates its anniversary, the port birthday, in high style every year. The festival goes on for three days and people from all over Germany come to enjoy the large amount of organized activities. Most impressive is the wide variety of sailboats, warships and all
other ships of all kinds, including the ability to visit the major cruise lines at a "reasonable" price, such as the Cap San Diego. In addition, there are tents with food and drink of all kinds, tents with live music and small dance floors and a nice fireworks display on Saturday. On Sunday evening, the ships leave the port in a quiet and solemn parade which is a must-see during your stay in the Hanseatic city. You end the three days of intense activities around the harbor. Many people go in the direction of St. Pauli and Reeperbahn and continue to celebrate the harbor birthday in the clubs. this festival is suitable for both young and old.
