Great view if you get a good table. Make a Reservation on the Phone. Service really poor. Waited ages to get served. Drinks good but pricy.

The Tower Bar has great views over the harbour and is especially impressive at night. It is quite expensive and gets busy but is worth it. Would advise booking if you can.

Nice place to go and sit for a drink but the place is very busy and the service is slow due mostly to the fact almost everyone is drinking cocktails and it's always full.

We stayed at Hotel Hafen Hamburg which was connected to this Tower bar so we decided to check it out around 10pm. The place was crowded, it took us awhile to get in and have a table. But as soon as we got inside, it was fine. Our table was situated at the second floor which allows you to view... More

From this higher up bar you have stunning views overlooking the port. Drinks are perfect! Very good value for money.

Basically a tourist hot spot. But there are very few tables with an actual view of the harbor, service is basic and the drinks are uninspired standard. So, there are many other, better bars. For real cocktails, go into the dancing towers or 20up.

Nice bar to enjoy a view over the Elba river and the passage of the big ships. It is not so spectacular as I thought.

My colleague and I went here for a pre-meal drink. The views across the harbour and city are excellent, especially when the lights begin to come on outside. The also play a some great blues music, or did when we were there.

A very small bar. It is also incredibly warm so if you are wrapped up tightly, and have managed to walk all the way up there, it does take a wee while to cool down! Drinks were good. Staff a bit random, but fun- it was just so busy so we only stayed for 2.

Thank SophiB

The Tower Bar at 62 meter height is legendary in Hamburg. Here you can experience a unique view over Hamburg, the Elbe and the port. Alongside the fantastic views, a visit to the Tower Bar allows you to enjoy the special flair that characterises the hanseatic city, with a delicious cocktail, a good wine or a freshly tapped beer!
