In the middle of the historic city centre, you’ll run across the Fleth, the oldest artificially constructed inner harbour dock in Northern Europe. It is here you will find the historic ewer MARGARETA at anchor. The old Buxtehude Hanseatic Harbour is a tide-dependent pier for passenger ships and launches, making it the starting point for a wealth of tours around the Este and Elbe rivers. A variety of tours are offered around the introspective historic district of the city.
