The history of the Stella Maris Hotel at the Hamburg Landungsbrücken
The story of the Stella Maris begins in the mid-1950s. In a time when rough guys were still looking for the great adventure on the high seas. When a ship still had a seasoned crew: from the ship's boy, the light sailors and the smutje to the boatswains, the officers and the ship's engineer all the way to the captain. A time when the crew still consisted of more than twenty real men, every port offered a home and there was always at least one girl waiting there. Yes, this is the time when the story of our Stella Maris begins. It was one of the first ports of call when going ashore after an endless sea voyage, based on sweat, hard work and many hardships. Here, every sailor was somehow "at home", met old and new friends, did his organisationally necessary "Tüdelkram", spun his sailor's yarn or invested his hard-earned wages in wine, women and song - pardon: in rum, the Reeperbahn (at half past midnight) and merriment, until, yes, until the next steamer called to duty again with its mighty puffing foghorn.
We want to be this "home" for you, like the sailors' home of yesteryear. As a place with tradition, which offers a home for your shore leave and which should be the origin for many experiences and encounters, for new friends, a wealth of unforgettable impressions and the experience of the wonderful peculiarities of Hamburg.
