July 12th, 2007, 02:10 PM
I might have forgotten some, but i didn't include the very small ones. All on the same scale, according to googlemaps.
Can you name them all?:)
July 12th, 2007, 04:12 PM
I can name Hamburg, Rotterdam and Copenhagen. But all the others... I dont know. :dunno:

I can see you like man made harbours a lot, mee too^^.

Copenhagen hasn't got a large harbour anymore (if we are talking about industrial and container harbour) - the largest harbour in Denmark is in Århus.

London and Edinburgh are there. Belfast too.

Hey Cborg, can you please do another one but with name of the city next to them, thanks a lot.
The size of port of London surprised me, there's hardly any decent size container docks, not exactly proportional with the size of the city.

Where do you see London in there? I can't seem to find it.
I thought was commonly know the Port of London (minus Tilbury) has ceased to be a major seaport since the Thames cannot handle the larger ships.

Ahhh... I didn't scoll to the right. Now I see it.
Nice job onthis collage!

Now that I see the solution: I'm missing Lübeck on the map. It is Germany's biggest port at the baltic sea.

port of Augusta - south-east of Sicily (ITALY):

Port of Constanta, Romania
* if the port would be used at full capacity, it could become a new Rotterdam for Central and Eastern Europe.
September 25th, 2011, 12:06 PM
A few Dutch naval ships were built in the Port of Constanţa.
September 25th, 2011, 06:15 PM
The top right port, called 'Oudeschip' here, is actually named 'Eemshaven'. Oudeschip maybe a nearby village, but I've never met anyone naming this port after the village.

The Tweede Maasvlakte is under construction. The harbourmap will look different in soon future.

What a weird thread-title. Biggest harbours is a contradictio in terminis.
Rotterdam, Antwerp and Hamburg are ports.
A harbour is a nice cove or inlet for (fishing)boats, while a port is designed for handling ships rather then boats.
I've never heard anyone in my life talking about the 'harbour of Rotterdam'
(@Euromaster: 'in soon future' is not English too ;) )

Eteläsatama, or South Harbour in Helsinki, Finland. It is the largest passenger harbour in Finland, and 5.4 million passengers travel through it every year.

Nice map. Belgian ports are all on it.
Liège had a busy river port once but it declined a bit along with the industry. So I guess it's ok it is not on there.
March 3rd, 2012, 04:16 AM
Liège is still the first inland port of Belgium and the third inland port of Europe though. All has not always to be negative.
March 3rd, 2012, 09:46 AM
Liège signed a cooperation agreement with Port of Rotterdam last week.
March 3rd, 2012, 10:09 AM
Yes, Liège Trilogiport project, and its increased cooperations with Rotterdam, Antwerpen and maybe Dunkerque, has the potential to make the Liège inland port the second of Europe, after Duisburg and equal to Paris; it's time to get a little recognition. There is no "decline", far from it.
