An engineering marvel and a phenomenal piece of Hamburg history, this tunnel underneath the river is both an underground landmark and an essential piece of infrastructure, connecting the docks to the south with the city centre on the other side of the river. Built in 1911, it was groundbreaking and it used to offer vehicles and pedestrians a much more efficient way across the river, but now, it's cycle and pedestrian access only, for tourists to marvel and commuters to reach their work or leisure destinations. Nowadays, it's sometimes used for exhibitions and makes a brilliant photo opportunity, too - although keep an eye out for some very speedy local cyclists! The disabled access is excellent, if you can find the huge old vehicle lift, which takes some doing, but keep a careful eye out for the signs, or ask for the "der Aufzug".
