St. Pauli Landungsbrücken (landing stages) is a 700-meter-long pontoon facility. Ten flexible bridges connect the pontoons with the mainland. Harbor tours, ferries and passenger ships leave from this water "station". Guests for the musical “The Lion King” can also depart from here to the theater at the opposite side of the Elbe.
Visitors can stroll around shops, cafes and restaurants while enjoying the view of the harbor. The former passenger terminal on the river promenade has been listed as an historic monument. At the western end is the entrance to the old Elbtunnel (Old Elbe Tunnel). The striking clock tower forms the eastern end of the building.
