Alter Elbtunnel - Review

Set up in 1907-11, the eldest of the Elbe Tunnels joins the area of St Pauli with the island of Steinwerder. The twin tunnel is 426m long and runs only 6m beneath the stream. Manufactured for activity, cyclists and walkers, the tunnel is beautified with adornments and tiles and can just be arrived at by lift or down the staircase. The intriguing vault molded door lobby on the north side was assembled by Ludwig Raabe and Otto Wöhlecke. Because of expanding measures of activity, even the New Elbe Tunnel has barely been amplified to an additional path. As more than 40,000 specialists needed to cross the Elbe to work at the shipyards and harbour administrators on the south bank at the start of the most recent century, a tunnel was fabricated between 1907 and 1911. The tunnel, made up of two single-path pipes of over 400 m (1300 ft) interfacing St Pauli with Steinwerder, was a sensation in now is the right time and was the first tunnel under a stream on the European terrain. Despite the fact that it was at first intensely utilized for transport, it is currently basically a vacation destination. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hamburg itinerary 3 days.

Alter Elbtunnel, Hamburg Reviews

  • A really nice area with souvenir shops. The hard rock cafe is located there too. The tunnel is fantastic if you consider when they build it. It is not clear where exactly is located but you can find some small signs which can direct you. There are stairs and lifts at both sites of the tunnel, but if someone is afraid of highs i strongly suggest to take the one of the lifts. It will be a bit scary to try the stairs. The tunnel is not so long, maybe 5 to 10 minutes walking and you are on the other side of the river where you can find a view site of the city and a small description of the tunnel. In general you cannot find anything else on the other site.

  • This one came up totally unexpected. So far my favourite spot in the city. Looks like scifi, an underwater tunnel built around 1910s, currently fixing it. Around 600 metres, cool down a bit the temperature and in the other side you have nice spot from the waterfront.

  • A nice walk to get a view of the city from the other side. The tunnel is interesting in that access is by lift which carries cars, bikes and pedestrians. We caught a ferry back which can be caught a few minutes from the tunnel.

  • A very interesting place, you go down this huge cyllindric hole, half constructed, giving it a very unique feeling and atmosphere. Once down there's the tunnel, one blocked the other open. 500-600 meters walk in a subway like corridor. It's definitely a cool, old place to check!

  • It's definitely worth it to go through the Elbtunnel while in Hamburg. The tunnel elevators and it's depth are impressive. You must see the city skyline from the other side of it, it's definitely worth it!
