Hamburg is the fifth stopover on the European Tour 2023, and it is the first time that the Götheborg visits the city since is was launched twenty years ago. Hamburg was specifically chosen as a key stopover for the ship during the European Tour 2023, as Greencarrier Consolidators opened new offices in Hamburg in April.
" Hamburg has a strategic location in the logistics industry, and will function as our gateway for the Nordics, as well as facilitating services for other markets in Europe. To us it was very important to include Hamburg as one of the stopovers on the European Tour, to invite customers, partners and the citizens of Hamburg on board. The Götheborg is a unique symbol for trade, that embodies that anything is possible", said Stefan Björk, owner of Greencarrier Group.
During the stopover, the ship will be open to visitors during the weekend 20–21 May, and on Tuesday the 23rd of May. We will be moored at Überseebrücke in Mitte. Monday and parts of Tuesday, the ship will be closed to the public and instead used for corporate events and meetings.
