The new HafenCity Terminal is currently being built in Hamburg Überseequartier and will comprise of two berths (345 metres & 230 metres long, max. draught of 10.3 metres) for up to 1,800 passengers. The new cruise terminal will be part of a building ensemble with an underground bus station, car parking and taxi access as well as hotel and retail space. Cruise ships calling at the new terminal will berth directly in the heart of the city near the Elbphilharmonie and right next to historic Speicherstadt, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2015. The new facility is set to open in 2025 and will be equipped to deliver shore power to calling vessels at berth.
Until the completion of the new Cruise Center HafenCity and beyond for a total of ten years, the Cruise Center Baakenhöft will serve as a temporary fallback option and additional berth in HafenCity.
