Hamburg Canal Cruise
Hamburg is popularly known as "the Venice of the North" because it has a maze of water channels that make up the urban area which sits on the Elbe, Alster and Billey. The city has one of the largest ports in Europe and the world, and 2302 bridges over its network of canals and lakes. One of the typical tourist trips is to cruise along its canals, leaving the port opposite the Town Hall (Jungfernstieg spring). The journey takes about an hour and costs 12 € and you can see the towers of the churches, the old warehouses, bridges, old town houses and more.
