Sustainable day-trips

Nature experience, environmental education & excursions into green areas

Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany - and at the same time a green oasis with lots of nature. Cycle along the Elbe or experience the blossoming of the Fischbeker Heide, Hamburg's excursion possibilities are diverse. Would you have thought that you could walk from the Landungsbrücken to the city centre via the extensive Planten un Blomen park? Or cycle once around Hamburg's city centre on the 100km-long Green Ring? And when Hamburg's weather is poor, you can delve deeper into sustainable topics at the Science Center Wald, the environmental centre or the Greenpeace exhibition.
