Cruise Center Steinwerder

The Cruise Center Steinwerder is Hamburg’s most modern cruise terminal and operations started in June 2015. The two separate terminal buildings have capacities to handle more than 8,000 passengers per ship visit. The terminal accommodates cruise ships of the latest generation with a length of up to 405m and a draught of up to 13m.

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg thus ensures that Hamburg remains attractive for cruise lines and passengers alike.

The opening times of the terminal depend on the arrival and departure times of the cruise ships. The terminal building is open to passengers, meeters and greeters as well as visitors during these times only.
