Hamburg Cruise Night on Friday

On Friday, 8 September 2017 – the first night of the Hamburg Cruise Days, the event kicks off with an amazing programme on land and on the water.

Highlights will include Blue Port Hamburg and the exhilarating appearance of the luxury liner Silver Wind with a special Silversea Cruises firework display. The elegant ship, owned and operated by Silversea Cruises, will be mooring at Landungsbrücken close to the city centre for maximum exposure. This is her first visit to the Hamburg Cruise Days – and she will be here for the full three days.

Cruise Night will also feature plenty of activities on the water. Themed cruises on river barges show just how varied cruises can be. All details of the programme we’ll constantly provide here on our website and on facebook.
