|This is Dockland, an office building, at Hamburg-Altona, right next to Altona cruise center (photo taken October 16, 2019).
From above the building you have a nice view of Hamburg harbour, but be aware that you'll have to climb 136 steps to get there, no lift available for the public (and no café, takeaway or similar and no lavatories either).
Dockland can be reached by harbour ferry (line 62 starting at Landungsbrücken). The station's called "Dockland/Fischereihafen".
In the morning Dockland is suitable for photos of all kinds of inbound traffic, except for (container) ships headed for Waltershofer Hafen (Eurogate Container Terminal and Container Terminal Burchardkai, inner quay).
In the evening you can take photos of outbound cruise ships, boxers leaving Container Terminal Tollerort or vehicle carriers, conros, general cargo coming from Hansahafen.
As I said the terrace on the roof is open to the public, but keep in mind that this is an office building and private property and access to the roof may be blocked by the owner without further notice at any time.
