This place is famous for welcoming ships into the port of Hamburg.

Every time a big ship passes they say hello and play the national anthem, followed by detailed technical information about the ship.

Big terrace, prices are fairly high, service was good and friendly. All looks pretty new, like recently renovated. It started raining, but 10 minutes before they had closed a transparent curtain, so you still could see the ships very well.

Our kids adored the place and we stayed for a good hour or so.

One minus point is you have to pay 0,70€ per hour for the parking. Do not forget to present your ticket to the service, otherwise it is 2€ per hour. I guess that due to a lack of public parking in the area they need to close their parking off, but it should be inclusive for customers.

All in all an interesting classic, but I am not sure if I will be back.

Had a superb time at this location, especially in the sun; verly lifely and busy, but staff was still friendly; every now and then a ship passes and is explained where it comes from and under which management it is travelling...

What a lovely spot on the banks of the Elbe - watching the ships going in and out of the port of Hamburg. Each ship is greeted or said farewell to over a loud speaker which then plays the country of registration's national anthem!
The restaurant and café are brilliantly positioned with a terrace - so perfect viewing even on an inclement day. Excellent coffee and cakes plus the restaurant food looked inviting ta the open visible pass.

Willkomm-Hoft is where the ships that come in and out of the Port of Hamburg are greeted and bid farewell. This is an interesting attraction which is not listed as an attraction in Trip Advisor when it should be. When a ship arrives the flag of the Port of Hamburg, on land, is brought down to welcome the ship and the national anthem of the state of register is played. When a ship leaves the same happens and the announcer will give details of the ship and its next destination. All in German though. You can sit at the Schulauer Fahrhaus and enjoy lunch while watching ships coming and going, We were lucky as it was a beautiful sunny day and thoroughly enjoyable.

Ordered an Alster, beer with lemonade and my mum a cappuccino with a glass of water on the side. They mixed the order up and put the water in the beer instead of the lemonade. After we asked them to bring a normal Alster they just put a little bit lemonade inside the watered down beer.. now I got beer with water and lemonade... not a real Alster. Unacceptable!
