Cuxhaven Guide

Cuxhaven Ferry Port

The coastal city of Cuxhaven is found on an angle of land in the north-east of Germany that is nestled between the North Sea and the mouth of the river Elbe. Once a part of the major city of Hamburg further west, Cuxhaven gained independence in 1937 and quickly became a popular tourist destination due to its collection of broad sandy beaches that almost double in size when the waters retreat during low-tide. Found on one of these beaches, at the corner between the river and the sea, is the prominent wooden Kugelbake beacon that dominates the city’s coat of arms. Cuxhaven port is located a short distance east of the city centre on the banks of the Elbe river. The ferry terminal here is a relatively small building on the promenade lining the Landwehrkanal inlet of the harbour. There are very few facilities here save for an indoor waiting room and a selection of vending machines selling hot and cold snacks. Those looking for a larger selection of food or drink can make use of the convenience store found further down the road. A number of transport routes lead to and from the port in Cuxhaven. The city’s train station is located just a short walk from the harbour and offers routes to nearby Bremen and Hamburg just over an hour and a half away. Local buses travel to the port too, including the number 1006 service which shuttles passengers to the picturesque Duhen beach resort on the North Sea coastline. One ferry service currently operates from the port at Cuxhaven. An Elb Link line sails east up the Elbe river to the port-town of Brunsbüttel on the opposite bank, a short trip that passes across the border separating the German regions of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein.
