Boat Rentals in Hamburg

Exploring the city from the water

Explore Hamburg on the water - a new and incredibly interesting way to see the city. Experience small canals and admire the impressive gardens of Hamburg's city villas along the banks of the Alster - you can't see them from land! Enjoy nature around the Alster - you can hardly be any closer when you're rowing yourself.
