The old Elbtunnel. It connects the St Pauli piers with the inner harbor area and was instrumental to allow harbor workers to transit from their housing areas to work. Small ferry boats had been the alternative, a bridge to cross the river was not optimal to be erected as it had limited the ship traffic through height restrictions. It was opened in 1911. The differently colored tiling on the tunnel ceiling indicates a WW-II bomb impact, which had been repaired.
