Alster Round Trips in Hamburg

Experience Hamburg's blue lifeline

No one coming to Hamburg can avoid it: the Alster. To be more precise, the Alster is divided into the outer and inner Alster. Originally, the Alster was only a small river that flowed into the Elbe. Legend has it that the lake was created after a miller dammed a lake for his mill. The Alster is a popular recreational and sports water for Hamburg locals that provides the necessary refreshment and relaxation, especially in summer.
