Cruise Center II Altona
The terminal caters for liners up to 300 metres in length and is multifunctional; in addition to ship clearance, the large hall can also be used to host events
Cruise liners play a major role in life and employment in Hamburg. In order to satisfy the growing number of ships and thus passengers, a second cruise ship terminal was erected close to the Fish Market in Altona. The heart of the building is the support-free terminal hall which, thanks to its open floor plan design, is optimally multifunctional. In addition to processing cruise-ship passengers, it is regularly used for large events. The terminal is made of precast concrete components and is also home to other sections of the terminal operations, such as customs clearance, baggage sorting, administration and staff facilities. The rooftop serves as an accessible viewing platform, while a wide outside staircase leads up to the 500-m²-large “Farewell Deck”, which can host a total of 1,500 visitors. The building site includes in part a filled-in harbour basin and quay wall. For this reason, deep foundations were laid for the building.
