See impressive cruise ships at Hamburg's port and Landungsbrücken during this spectacular maritime Hamburg festival.
The Cruise Days are the spectacular finale of a week full of cruise-related events. From the Blue Port art installations to the Seatrade fair and the Cruise Parade in the end, Cruise Week is Europe’s biggest event that concentrates entirely on cruise ship tourism. This means, of course, that a whole armada of cruise ships will berth in Hamburg’s port, which makes for an impressive view from the docks and vantage points of Hamburg. However, not only tourists will get their money’s worth: the FVW CruiseLive congress brings together representatives of some of the most important cruise companies and functions as a major interface between relevant industries.
This year’s Cruise Parade will be spearheaded by six major cruise ships. Big names like the AIDAprima, Mein Schiff 3 and MSC Preziosa will join the impressive parade. Several smaller ships as well as a grand display of fireworks will turn the parade into the absolute highlight of the Cruise Days. The event starts on Saturday, 9 Sept at 09:15 p.m.
At night, artist Michael Batz will once again illuminate the port area in bright blue colours, which makes for an impressive, almost surreal scenery. Starting on 1 Sept, the Blue Port installations will grow in number until finally, on Cruise Days weekend, more than a hundred buildings will be illuminated in beautiful blue.
