5.Strandperle

The Strandperle is the cult bar on the Elbe beach. With sand under your feet and chilled drinks in your hand you can end the day in a relaxed way. The Elbe is so close to here that the beach pearl has to close the bulkheads in case of heavy rain and flooding. On the other hand, the proximity of the water in good weather offers even better opportunities to watch the thick pots from the first row.
