Große Elbstraße

Always parallel to the Elbe, the Große Elbstraße runs from the St. Pauli fish market along the Altona Balcony all the way to Neumühlen.

Here, you have an unobstructed view of the countless cranes and ships in the harbour and can watch the lively hustle and bustle on the other side of the Elbe. Occasionally a fresh breeze blows around your nose, suggesting that in the immediate vicinity of the fish market, many fish wholesalers have settled. But there’s much more to discover in the Große Elbstraße. Fresh fish is immediately processed and served here in the many high-quality restaurants. A little further you will find delis, vintage furniture and the iconic Haifisch Bar, where you can still meet real seamen having their evening beer.

Stroll, relax and watch the ships on the Elbe beach Elbe beach

The Elbe beach near Övelgönne is a pretty hot tip in summer. When the temperatures rise and the sun burns, nothing is more refreshing than a jump into the cool water.

In addition to the harbour, the Alster forms the maritime face of the city of Hamburg. The Alster, divided in to Binnenalster and Außenalster by the Lombardsbrücke, is a meeting point and attraction for tourists and Hamburgers alike.
