You may think that a tunnel isn't all that exciting to visit - well, this one is. First of all, it's old. Secondly, it features pre-world-war-I - elevators, big enough to lift carts and horses, and thirdly, you can just picture it featuring in a...More

An unusual tourist attraction which is free. (As featured in the Odessa Files movie). The tunnel has a lifts for passengers and lifts for cars. When you walk through, you are rewarded with a nice view of the harbour from the opposite of the river.

It's a short walk from one side of the Elbe to the other when you take the underground route. Enter the tunnel at the Landungsbrücken and descend either in an elevator or take the curving stairs. Watch the auto elevators rise and descend, taking cars...More

The tunnel is currently under maintenance/renovation so only one of the two tunnels is open. It is well worth a visit and take a look. During the week cars go one way in the morning and return in the afternoon. If it is busy at...More
