Hamburg, 5 July 2023 – An event packed with emotion and unforgettable moments awaits visitors to the ninth Hamburg Cruise Days from 8 – 10 September 2023.

From 8-10 September 2023, when the Hamburg Cruise Days moors in the port, the city again becomes a stage for the glittering world of cruises. The world’s most beautiful cruise festival is back after the pandemic and a boutique edition last year – with stunning ships and a lavish, engaging programme along the waterfront, including Blue Port Hamburg and spectacular event highlights like the Grand Parade on Saturday evening. AIDA Cruises is again the event’s Premium Partner.
The Hamburg Cruise Days pur ended with sunshine on Sunday – and despite the different conditions, once again proved that the event truly is the world’s most spellbinding cruise festival: with 135,000 cruise fans, an inspiring shore programme, five impressive cruise ships, two breath-taking evening shows on the Elbe River – and captivating images and messages that went out around the world from Hamburg.
A longing for ocean travel and the fascination of cruises: no other event showcases this captivating combination quite like the Hamburg Cruise Days. On the second day of the event, thousands of visitors along the riverside in Hamburg’s port enjoyed an inspiring shore programme as well as a spectacular evening display of two cruise ships accompanied by lights, drones and music on the Elbe River.
Finally, the long wait is over: after the pandemic put a halt to the event for several years, the 8th Hamburg Cruise Days was officially opened on Friday afternoon. The thrilling event, which this year is intentionally being held as a smaller boutique version – hence the “pur” suffix – attracted thousands of cruise fans to the harbour. In a suitably spectacular style, the event kicked off with a double bill of legends: the light-up of the Blue Port Hamburg illuminations and the visit of the Queen Mary 2.
The Hamburg Cruise Days are the most spectacular cruise festival in the world. So, it is hardly surprising that tens of thousands of maritime enthusiasts make the pilgrimage to Hamburg’s port area every two years to experience in person this thrilling and moving event staged over land and water. After a forced break due to the pandemic, a “special edition” of the internationally acclaimed maritime event will now take place between 19 and 21 August 2022, making it the eighth time it has been held at the Port of Hamburg. On board once more – Michael Batz, with his Blue Port Hamburg light installation, and AIDA Cruises, the event’s premium partner.
There hasn’t been a large urban event at the Port of Hamburg since 2019. Now the wait is over: the port will once again become a stage this summer, when the Hamburg Cruise Days and Blue Port Hamburg invite visitors to immerse themselves in the fascinating world of cruises. An atmospheric programme on land and at sea awaits guests from 19 to 21 August 2022.
It’s an announcement that will delight cruise lovers: finally, the date for the next Hamburg Cruise Days has been set. From Friday the 19th until Sunday the 21st of August 2022, the port of Hamburg will once again be devoted to a celebration of cruises.

2018 proved to be another highly satisfying cruise season for Cruise Gate Hamburg GmbH (CGH). The operator of Hamburg’s three terminals expects cruise travel in the city to continue to grow sharply.
