Kennedy and Lombards Bridges

The Kennedy and Lombard bridge is a picturesque bridge that leads visitors over the Alster and marks the old course of the city used to separate the Outer Alster from the Inner Alster.

Today, the Lombardsbrücke bridge is a popular photo motif. From the Jungfernstieg via the Binnenalster, the Lombardsbrücke is unmistakable. But even from the Lombardsbrücke itself you can not only photograph the Hamburg panorama but also simply let your gaze wander and look at the city centre from a different perspective. By the way: the Kennedy Bridge behind it was subject to strict design guidelines. The Jungfernstieg as well as the Außenalster did not disturb the view and the unique cityscape with the Lombardsbrücke. Today, the Kennedy Bridge elegantly hides behind the Lombardsbrücke.

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.
