Attend the
interactive harbor
adventure tour

The Discovery Dock is the trend-setting mixed reality experience world that virtually brings the Hamburg Port to life. Join the interactive Port Experience Tour to explore unseen perspectives and unique experiences in and around the multifaceted Port of Hamburg . 

So, you’ve never worn virtual reality glasses and never experienced a live simulation? That doesn’t matter at all, you don’t need any prior experience for the tour, because the Discovery Dock is a unique highlight for everybody. Our port guides are there for you during the tour and are always available to assist you.

We recommend a minimum age of 7 years-old, as the content on the subject of ports is more in line with the interests of adults and is not specifically designed for children. And a certain size and dexterity is necessary for the technical devices we use – we don’t want children to be disappointed.

You can find helpful tips and information for your visit in our “Questions and Answers” (Q&A) section.

Our tip

Combine the Discovery Dock with a harbor cruise on the water. And that at a saving price of only 30 euros. 


Of course, you can also buy coupons as a gift.

Make your family, friends, acquaintances or colleagues a very special gift with WOW effect. In our shop you will find all vouchers for the Discovery Dock.

But beware: The voucher is not an admission ticket. The coupon code is entered when the ticket is booked and the value is credited accordingly.

Aber am Center-Table gibt es noch viel mehr zu entdecken. Sei gespannt!
