Cruise Gate Hamburg is happy to announce a record-breaking year with 171 cruise ship visits to Hamburg with more than 710,000 passengers. We expects these figures to rise to nearby 200 arrivals and about 800,000 passengers in the 2017 season. “This is an excellent result given that this is the first year we are fully operational on the three terminals,” says Sacha Rougier, Managing Director of Cruise Gate Hamburg GmbH. “Our work behind the scenes and the close dialogue with the cruise companies resulted in a record number of passengers in 2016.

Hamburg’s growing popularity as a cruise destination is not least due to spectacular events, such as the Hamburg Cruise Days and the Blue Port Hamburg, a combined event that draws large crowds.

The high-profile maritime event, which next takes place from 8 to 10 September 2017, lures hundreds of thousands of cruise enthusiasts to the port and together with the Harbour’s Birthday (5-7 May 2017) has become one of the major events in the Hanseatic city’s event calendar. 

With the operational takeover of the two city cruise terminals “Altona” and “Hafencity”, as well as the small pontoon “Überseebrücke” at the very heart of the port, adjacent to the Landungsbrücken, Cruise Gate Hamburg has grown from 5 to 9 dynamic and young professionals.

Our team includes two Captain´s (women), a former port agent and an international terminal operator and highly qualified maritime professionals.

We have moved too and are located now at the waterfront (Traditionshafen), next to Hamburgs new Landmark, the Elbphilharmonie
