At the Cruise Center Hafen City (CC1) in the heart of Hamburg's HafenCity and opposite the Port of Hamburg, cruise ships have been handled at a terminal from modular container elements since 2004. In order to make optimal use of this valuable location, a new cruise terminal will be built here by the end of 2022. Until the opening of the new terminal in the southern Überseequartier and beyond for a total of 10 years, cruise ships can use the temporary Cruise Center Baakenhöft as an alternative and additional berth in HafenCity. The Hamburg Cruise Center Baakenhöft is located in the eastern HafenCity at Kirchenpauerkai and consists of a terminal building as well as a quay operating area and traffic areas. The terminal building has one floor with a floor space of approx. 1,000 m² and is designed as a steel construction hall. In the traffic areas outside the building there is a drop-off zone for taxis and individual cars, as well as areas for handling shuttle and tour buses.
