if you are close by then it is worth the 30 mins it will take to go down, walk to the other side and get back. Otherwise do not go out of your way. No doubt it is a great engineering feat but is not...More

Its an interesting experience to either walk or drive under the Elb i the old tunnel. It gives you a good impression of how important this tunnel must have been earlier, allowing people to cross the Elb very quickly. The tunnel is pretty narrow when...More

I'd never imagined myself walking in a tunnel under the sea and there I was walking in the tunnel with friends. The tunnel is opened in 1911 and it is a pedestrian and vehicle (only a lane for one car) tunnel. It is 426m long...More

We visited the Elb tunnel on a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon. There is a lift to take you up and down to the ground floor of the tunnel or for the fitter and more adventurous there are some steel steps. Once in the bottom of...More

A very cool tunnel with great detail in ceramic tiling and carvings, and also with car lift still in use. I've walked and run through previously but sadly with my visitor it was all blocked off. The stairs are fun, but not for those (like...More

The quickest way to cross the Elbe river. There is a car lift and a passenger/bike lift down and up and a long walk to the other side. Interesting to watch a car going down and through the tunnel. Very narrow path for cars. Great...More

It was a very nice (and free) walk under the Elb river. Also fascinating to see the old huge elevators - you can even take a ride with them. On the other side you have a view to the river, and a few shops sells...More

Interesting industrial elevators but you have to walk a lot in the tunnel itself. Better on bikes. On the other side there is nothing except the view back to the Piers and Hamburg, so if you are a photographer it is a must.

This is an unusual way to see the Hamburg's skyline. A friend of mine took me through this intriguing German engineering project, from the beginning of the 20th Century. It's entirely decorated with ceramic glazed figures, wonderful art deco lamps and beautiful elevators for cars...More

If you like the harbour of Hamburg (which, in itself is impressive), be sure to include the Elbtunnel. The history of the construction and engineering that went into this is quite interesting. Descending, walking in the tunnel, and ascending on the other side takes about...More

According to a German news site, there are 132 steps.
If we take the S 1 Bahn to Landungsbrucke would it be easy to get a taxi to Steinwerder cruise center to board our ship? Thanks for any help.
