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.

This tour of the idyllic, verdant Alster canals give you a completely different impression of Hamburg. As the Alster steamer glides slowly along, a whiff of sea air transports you back to the heyday of Hamburg's rich merchants. The pace of life is slower here, proof that modern, maritime Hamburg also has its quiet side.
