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.
