See impressive cruise ships at Hamburg's port during this spectacular maritime Hamburg festival.

Hamburg Cruise Days The Hamburg Cruise Days are a must for every fan of the impressive Cruise ships. 

Hamburg Cruise Days

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.

Cruise Parade

In 2017, the Cruise Parade was spearheaded by six major cruise ships. Big names like the AIDAprima, Mein Schiff 3, MS EUROPA and MSC Preziosa joined the impressive parade. Several smaller ships as well as a grand display of fireworks turned the parade into the absolute highlight of the Cruise Days.

Blue Port 2017

In early September 2017, artist Michael Batz illuminated the nightly port area in bright blue colours, making for an impressive, almost surreal scenery. Starting on 1 Sept, the Blue Port installations grew in number until finally, on Cruise Days weekend, more than a hundred buildings were illuminated in beautiful blue.
