St Pauli Elbtunnel information

Lonely Planet review

Just west of the St Pauli landing piers stands a grey structure topped by a copper cupola. This is the entrance to the St Pauli Elbtunnel. Dated from 1911, it's a 426m-long passageway beneath the Elbe River. It is still used by vehicles and pedestrians, although most cars take the New Elbe Tunnel further west.
