As you step foot off the ship, you'll be warmly greeted by a local tour guide, eager to show you Cuxhaven by night. The sightseeing bus tour will take you past the harbour and other local landmarks to Hapag Halls, a historic waiting room for emigrants dating from 1902. 

Here, you'll learn about the maritime heritage of the city and its fishing industry. You'll also hear stores about the tenacity and courage of those who embarked on life-changing journeys, as well as about shipping pioneer, Albert Ballin.  

Around midnight we will have a midnight snack with a drink of your choice.

Please note: This excursion ends at 01:30 AM. Limited number of participants.
