First results from the NA49 experiment with a 208Pb beam on a Pb target at the CERN SPS with total energy of 33 TeV are presented. Data on transverse energy production, forward energy flow and rapidity density of negative hadrons are shown and discussed. The degree of nuclear stopping and the energy densities achieved are estimated for near head-on collisions.
