Canal trip through Hamburg

On an Alster steamer over the city's waterways.

Guests of the Elbe metropolis who would like to taste of the spirit of the city should take time for a canal trip in Hamburg.

A leisurely cruise on an Alster steamer along the former Hanseatic lanes transports you back in time to the days of pepper sacks and lets a trace of sea air blow around your nose. The mighty ocean giants are booming nearby, a cruise ship is parked across the way... this is more a canal-like place - the second largest German city can be so diverse: modern, moderate, maritime and also quite cosy.
