Anyone travelling in the Elbe metropolis usually takes the S-Bahn or subway - but thanks to the rental of canoes and pedalo boats in Hamburg, you can also explore the city by water.

Pedal boats and canoeing on the Alster are fun for the whole family, as the spacious boats can usually accommodate at least four people, depending on their size. There are more than 50 boat rentals in the Binnenalster and Außenalster; through the numerous canals you not only get to know the city centre, but also the green districts of Hamburg and the city park with its idyllically situated lake.

Racing through the Alster canals

If you rent a pedalo, you also do something for your health, because exercise makes you fit. In addition, one experiences a sightseeing tour of a somewhat different kind. On the Alster canals, one sometimes feels like being in a mini Manhattan, because from the pedal boat perspective the modern and chic buildings of Hamburg form an impressive skyline. The canals that run through his city can also be compared with Venice or Amsterdam. In between you can get off at the Alsterarkaden at the Rathaus, and of course at the Neuer Wall. You can even get to the port of Hamburg, but a round trip between the docks and port facilities is only possible with a harbour barge.

Hamburg - the greenest city in Germany

Hamburg was the environmental capital of Europe in 2011 and is known to have more trees than inhabitants. Probably the visitor also has more water than soil under his feet and can enjoy it extensively on a boat tour on the Binnenalster and Außenalster. Sunbathing is not a problem after swimming in a pond. So why not start your stay in Hamburg with a pedalo rental in Hamburg?
