Blue Port Hamburg
Over a week before Cruise Days, the Waterkant will be light up in the first blue tones. This light continues to grow into the harbour every day until it connects dozens of buildings, bridges and objects and becomes an unforgettable work of art. Light artist Michael Batz is the creator of Blue Port Hamburg. His award-winning lighting projects have already been shown in Salzburg, Florence, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Berlin.
Laser, Light and Harbour Sounds
We advise you not to miss the Friday evening, because this year for the first time there will be a new highlight on the opening day! Laser, Light and Harbour Sounds is a spectacular light and laser production, which is accompanied by a spherical sound scenery and magically sets the stage for the Costa Mediterranea of Costa Cruises. The show is expected to start around 21:45.
The Great Hamburg Cruise Days Parade
It is unique in the world: The Great Hamburg Cruise Days Parade on Saturday evening makes the event an unforgettable experience in the blue illuminated harbour. The magnificent ships will head down the Elbe river towards the sea, accompanied by fireworks and numerous other smaller ships. Beginning is about 9pm.
Our insider tip: You should make sure you get a place in time, because the spectacular event attracts thousands to the Elbe river on Saturday evening.
Don’t worry if you can’t be there live: The parade will be broadcast live by NDR.
Conclusion: If you want to feel the fascination of cruising, Hamburg Cruise Days is your event.
