If you want to get to the area south of the harbour in the quickest way possible, choose to go through the beautiful Elbtunnel in St. Pauli. A landmark of the City of Hamburg for over 100 years, the tunnel spans 426.5 metres to lead you directly to the Elbe island of Steinwerder. Pedestrians and bicyclists can use the tunnel all day and all night free of charge. For motorised vehicles – motorbikes, cars and small lorries – the crossing is only possible at certain times and for a fee. Here is where you can find all the important information you need to know about how to use the Elbtunnel.
