PORT OF HAMBURG: Welcome to the official website of Germany's biggest seaport

  • Around 7,500 ship calls per year, almost 300 berths and a total of 43 kilometers of quay for seagoing vessels, more than 1,300 freight trains per week, four state-of-the-art container terminals, three cruise terminals and around 50 facilities specialized in handling roro and breakbulk and all kinds of bulk cargoes, along with about 7,300 logistics companies within the city limits – these are just a few of the factors making the Port of Hamburg to one of the world's most flexible, high-performance universal ports.

    126.3 million tons of cargo crossed the quay walls of Germany's largest seaport in 2020. That included around 8.5 million standard containers (TEU). Hamburg is accordingly the third largest container port in Europe and in the 18th place on the list of the world's largest container ports.
