Travelling by Ferry

The Helgoliner ferry connects Hamburg with Wedel, Cuxhaven and Helgoland. Those from Northern Germany can take the ferry to get to Hamburg, and holiday-makers in Hamburg can use the ferry to take a short trip to a North Sea island.

This large ferry starts at Hamburg’s Landungsbrücken and in Wedel and travels non-stop to Helgoland. You can choose freely how long you want to stay in Helgoland: Whether it’s a stay of a couple of days or you want to come back on the same day, the choice is yours. Enjoy your time on the island and spoil yourself.

Hamburg’s Harbour Ferries

Hamburg’s harbour ferries are one component of Hamburg’s public transport system and travel under the auspices of the Hanseatic transport association, HVV, meaning you can buy a HVV ticket to board. The “HADAG” ferries connect important traffic hubs with one another but also provide guests with a short sightseeing tour through Hamburg Harbour.

Hamburg’s ferry lines include the connection Elbe Ferry Cranz – Blankenese, which gives passengers wonderful insights into the Romantic Elbe crossing between Blankenese and the Altes Land – Hamburg’s fruit growing paradise. Those who would rather explore the harbour can take line 61 and make their way from the Landungsbrücken to Neuhof.

You will find more information on the homepage of the HADAG, where you will also find price information and timetables.
