Night Lights in the Port of Hamburg

The Port of Hamburg (Hamburger Hafen) is a seaport on the river Elbe in Hamburg, Germany, 110 kilometres (68 mi) from its mouth on the North Sea.

Known as Germany’s “Gateway to the World” (Tor zur Welt), it is the country’s largest seaport by volume.

The port covers an area of 73.99 square kilometres (28.57 sq mi) (64.80 km² usable), of which 43.31 km² (34.12 km²) are land areas.

The branching Elbe creates an ideal place for a port complex with warehousing and transshipment facilities.
