The light-up of BLUE PORT HAMBURG
Art at the touch of a button: The BLUE PORT HAMBURG light installation began bathing the harbour in blue light a whole week before the start of Hamburg Cruise Days. With every passing day, the artwork extends a little further into the harbour, bringing its magical blue glow to more buildings and landmarks.
The Grand Hamburg Cruise Days Parade
The one and only, the Grand Hamburg Cruise Days Parade! Gorgeously illuminated cruise liners sail majestically down river past the blue lights of the harbour and as each passes, it receives a greeting and its own burst of fireworks. A small “armada” of boats and barges forms the accompanying convoy. The NDR broadcasts a special show dedicated to the parade.
approx. 9.20 pm
The big ship departures on Sunday evening
On Sunday morning, the MSC Splendida and the Queen Mary 2 - the two heavyweights of the Hamburg Cruise Days - will be sailing into the port of Hamburg. The evening departure of the two ocean-going giants will be the grand finale of the event.
