Sailing ship Mercedes – Hamburg Cruise Days

The sailing ship Mercedes is one of the youngest ships in the international fleet of tall ships and it stands out on account of its magnificent rigging. These cruises will take you past the Elbphilharmonie, Landungsbrücken, along the Elbe waterline down to Blankenese. The captain will also sail close to the cruise ships to allow passengers to admire the ocean-going giants from close quarters.
