The piers are located in the St. Pauli area of Hamburg, between the lower harbour and the Fischmarkt (Fish Market), on the banks of the Elbe river. The Landungsbrücken today form a central transportation hub, with S-Bahn, U-Bahn and ferry stations, and are also a major tourist magnet with numerous restaurants and departure points for harbour pleasure boats. On this old postcard you can see only some trams
The eastern end of the building complex is marked by the Pegelturm (water level tower). You can see this tower in front of this postcard. Halfway up the tower, there is a water level indicator built into the wall, which indicates the current stage of the tides.
