Secret Place - Sandtorhöft

2

The harbor of Hamburg is a very busy place and I don't mean the ships that sail down the Elbe. I speak of the millions of tourists that pass by the Landungsbrücken everyday; that stroll alongside the most touristic part of the harbor. I love this place because it is never the same and it changes with every ship that enters the harbor.

The harbor of Hamburg is a very busy place and I don’t mean the ships that sail down the Elbe. I speak of the millions of tourists that pass by the Landungsbrücken everyday; that stroll alongside the most touristic part of the harbor. I love this place because it is never the same and it changes with every ship that enters the harbor.

But sometimes you just want to relax and watch the ships. So I will now tell you one of my favorite places at the harbor. A place where you can just sit down and chill out: The Sandtorhöft ferry dock. It is at the Kehrwiederspitze and you reach it with ferry boat No 62. Then just leave the main pontoon and enter the one where the “Großer Michel” lies at anchor. Sit down wherever you like and enjoy the swaying of the pontoon and the view. You see the “Michel” (the town’s landmark), the U3 passes by, lots of excursion boats and sometimes passengers from the ferry boat behind you. Close your eyes and listen for a while. This is how to relax.
