The St. Pauli Piers are a 700m long landing place in Hamburg harbour and are one of Hamburg's major tourist attractions. Since 1839 they served as a terminal for steamboats that where filled with coal. Between 1907 and 1909, the pier was extended by a terminal building. The tower of that building does not only show the time but also the water level of the northern Elbe river. Every half hour you can hear a ship's bell ringing here. From St. Pauli Piers you can easily discover the Harbour. Either by foot while Walking along the water or by taking a Harbour cruise boat. They leave constantly from the Piers. If you want to be on the water, but not that long you can also just take a ferry - the ticket is even included in you HVV daily pass!
