This is the nautical side of the Elberadweg. Cuxhaven and Brunsbüttel are the major cities on both sides of the Elbe in this section. At times, the other side of the Elbe’s banks disappear over the horizon.

With its harbour combining history and international city flair, the Hanseatic city of Hamburg offers you just this. The maritime landscape of the Lower Elbe ends here.
