Binnenalster, Hamburg

(4.7/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • the visit to the Alster Lake is one of visiting Hamburg; the accumulated Alster is a kind of pool; here Start here the Alster round trips with the Alster ships; sometimes find water sports events take place, which I find personally unsuitable; in the summer, a fountain bubbles in the middle and in the advent the Alster FIR lights (both funded by an endowment and donations)

  • Good for strolling. Here you can just relax and escape the Streß. Good weather and suitable clothing required set.

  • It is the true Center of the city and the small lake is gorgeous. On the shore is the four seasons hotel and and some of the most exclusive shops. The paisajre is beautiful.
