Canal tour around the Alster

This tour of the idyllic, verdant Alster canals give you a completely different impression of Hamburg. As the Alster steamer glides slowly along, a whiff of sea air transports you back to the heyday of Hamburg's rich merchants. The pace of life is slower here, proof that modern, maritime Hamburg also has its quiet side.
