St. Pauli Landungsbrücken
+49 40 3005 1300
The impressive St. Pauli Landungsbrücken and Old Elbe Tunnel are probably Hamburg's most popular landmark motifs. Built in 1906-10 by Ludwig Raabe and Otto Wöhlecke, the 420-meter-long building features two towers of differing heights, as well as a number of bridge-shaped passageways and copper domes. Several piers lead out to floating pontoons in the middle of the Elbe. These were once used as mooring points for the galleons which frequented the city, but are now used primarily by sightseeing boats.
