Wordless Wednesday: Willkomm-Höft in Weldel

All large ships arriving or departing from Hamburg’s harbour pass by Wedel’s Willkomm-Höft and are greeted acoustically with their own national anthem and in their native language. Willkomm-Höft is even registered in the ships’ charts, and is known around the world. The greeting captains at the Schulau ferry station also convey additional information about the passing ships, such as their port of destination or the kind of cargo they’re carrying.
