Binnenalster, Hamburg

4.7
#3 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Hamburg
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
Located right on the port, Binnenalster is also the commercial center of the city, where designer stores, cafes, and restaurants abound. Stroll the streets for some leisurely window-shopping, or sit on a bench to watch the people go by or to admire the architecture or the central fountain. Walk along the lake and feed the swans, or catch a boat to the other side. The selection of restaurants is immense. If you don't mind a little wait, you might be able to get a table on a terrace overlooking the lake.

  • We have explored the binnenalster running very warm if you are not afraid to have a little way to run. Especially the meters high Faisal impresses even if the atmosphere along the banks

  • This lovely lakeside promenade is a great place to watch the boats on the Alster from. If boats are not your style then just take a seat and do some people watching.  more »
  • A small pond, with a supplier, first, do not draw much attention. But it is possible to spend a good time sitting on their pristine stairs, and appreciate the extraordinary thing is that, finally, in Hamburg not pass anything at the Binnenalster.

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
