Hamburg is a harbor city. The harbor is the spot to view huge shipyards, stroll along the waterfront or enjoy excellent seafood. A tour boat is classic Hamburg, but you can get a similar adventure by taking the ferry. The ferries are part of Hamburg’s public transportation system, meaning your inexpensive ticket is valid not only on streets and rails but on the water. Among tourists, the most popular ferry is No. 62, which takes you on a 30-minute trip along the most important waterfront sights.
