Binnenalster, Hamburg

4.7
#3 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Hamburg
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. With our online itinerary creator, Hamburg attractions like Binnenalster can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

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.
