Getting ready to sail to the USA
The tour around Hamburg’s busy harbor, the second largest in Europe after Rotterdam, has to be seen to be believed. The best boat departs from bridge 6. It’s a large vessel, capable of carrying many hundreds of passengers but of course, everyone’s up top to enjoy the views. You pass beneath and beside massive container ships. One of them is capable of carrying more than 5,000 containers! Think about this the next time you see a truck moving down the road with just one container. The captain’s jokes and commentary are not broadcast in English, so those who don’t understand German have to be satisfied with the “Wow” effect. We think that’s enough.
