Hamburg is a treasure trove of bar gems. The Alsterperle on the eastern bank of the Alster is the counterpart to the Strandperle. Small snacks and sweet drinks cater for the physical well-being of guests. The Hamburg skyline can be marvelled at directly on the waterfront and the hustle and bustle on the Alster can be observed.
