7 beautiful winter walks through Hamburg
We love winter in Hamburg, its icy air and the wide, clear views it gives us. Equipped with hat, gloves and scarf, we can walk for hours through Hamburg and its frosty landscapes even on chilly days. Whether with or without snow, here are seven wonderful winter walks through Hamburg. Have fun!
1.Through the Treppenviertel to the Elbstrand
We like to go to the Treppenviertel in Blankenese in winter. And not only because of the good view we have from the 72-metre-high Süllberg. For us, a trip to Blankenese is always a discovery tour. More than 5,000 steps await you. Especially the contrast between old and new houses, but also the imposing architecture make the district so spectacular for us. The path then leads down the beach steps to the Elbe beach, where we listen to the shallow waves of the Elbe.
2.Around the Außenalster
A walk around the Außenalster is one of the classics. The seven-kilometre walk can be completed in just over two hours. You pass noble villas, small cafés and large meadows, always with a great view of the city skyline. Especially at dusk and during Advent, you will get into a festive mood here.

3.Through the Stadtpark
148 hectares offer more than enough space for an extensive walk. And even though many people will have visited the Stadtpark many times, there is always a new branch here that you haven't taken yet. We like to walk across the park from the planetarium in the northwest to the rose garden in the east.

4.On the Altonaer Balkon
On the north bank of the Elbe, about 27 metres above the river, there is a lot going on in summer. In winter it is a little quieter here, but no less beautiful. In good weather, you can let your gaze wander for kilometres over Hamburg harbour from here and watch the passing ships. You should allow about 20 minutes for a stroll. If you then want to get a little closer to the harbour edge, it only takes 10 minutes to get directly to the Dockland.
5.In the middle of the Duvenstedter Brook
The "Duvenstedter Brook" is only a stone's throw away and a real tip for a winter walk! Take the U1 to Ohlstedt and then continue on foot to the diverse landscape area. The area, which is partly covered with water, is home to a great deal of wildlife. Red deer in particular can often be seen in Duvenstedter Brook in autumn. When the area goes into hibernation, the copse is an oasis for all those seeking peace and quiet.

6.In the Harburger Bergen
The Harburger berge in the south of Hamburg are always worth a visit. The Harburg mountains can't quite compete with the Alps, but they still make for a relaxing change during an extensive winter walk. Especially when the weather is good and the air is clear, a hike like this is a lot of fun and strengthens the immune system.

7.From the Wittenbergen Heide to the Elbstrand
In the west of Hamburg - in the district of Rissen - lies the extensive nature reserve "Wittenbergener Heide". On a winter walk through the varied landscape, you can experience peace and tranquillity. The path leads through small wooded areas past clearings and small dunes down to the Elbwiesen and the well-known Falkensteiner Ufer. The destination of our winter walk is the viewing platform "Zum Elbblick".
