Alster Fountain

Hamburg's landmark in the middle of the Binnenalster

If you sit on the Jungfernstieg and look out over the beautiful Alster panorama, you will immediately notice the Alster Fountain.
As Hamburg's landmark, the Alster Fountain has been bubbling every year from March to November since 18 April 1987.
The original idea came from Carlheinz Hollmann (German television and radio presenter), who wanted to recreate the "Jet d'eau", the fountain on Lake Geneva. Due to the wind in Hamburg, however, the height of the fountain is limited.
In summer, the small drops of water from the 60-metre-high Alster Fountain glisten through the area and visitors are often thrilled with a rainbow.  In the evening it is illuminated by spotlights and thus offers a beautiful water spectacle.

Sightseeing on the water is a great way to see Hamburg. From the delightful Inner and Outer Alster lakes you can admire pretty Alsterpark, the villas and whole fleets of sailing boats. On a one-hour steamer tour, you cruise once around Outer Alster lake, close enough to the banks to appreciate its special charm and to get a completely different impression of the city of Hamburg.

Hamburg DOM

The Hamburg DOM was cancelled! The Hamburg DOM fair has taken place on Heiligengeistfeld since 1892; its name "DOM" - cathedral - comes from an old term for an annual market rather than a religious event.
