The harbour is probably Hamburg’s number one tourist attraction. Not only is it one of the most important trans-shipment centres in Europe but also a tourist hot spot. You can watch ships from all over the world coming and going, from either the water’s edge or one of the numerous tour ships. To get an even nicer view over the harbour and Hamburg in general you may climb the “Michel”. The belfry of this, three times rebuilt, baroque church, can even be visited at night.
