The lake is amazing and the sorrounding is just fantastic, enjoyed a lot. However be careful with your children as there is no fence for safety or protection

Hamburg is such a beautiful city, full of history and beautiful places to see, it is difficult not to fall in love with it. The Alsters are just one of the many great scenes to enjoy,, no matter the season. There are plenty of restaurants to chose from or even sitting by the steps around the lake while having an... More

My nephew suggested we do the lake tour instead of the harbour tour. It was a great suggestion. We walked the harbour, then walked to the lake which gave us a feel to Hamburg. The lake tour included the downtown as well as residential areas. Really enjoyed it. And would make it a must if you are only in Hamburg... More

Great to sit nearby, watching the world go by, or for taking a boat trip on. We went on a trip round the lake and the canals, which showed another side of Hamburg - very interesting.

Nice place for a walk, biking or boat trip. A lot of beautiful architecture around, especially at the northern extension of the lake.

A beautiful place to have a bite with a view and pass the hours away while enjoying the nice weather outdoors in August baring any rain.

This lake front is the most beautiful area in a large city that I can think of. It is lined with beautiful trees and shrubs, it has a very wide walking/strolling/riding path and is bordered by some of the most amazing houses in the city. We walked early in the a.m. and late in the evening and it is one... More

Beautiful setting, restaurants on the water cycling tracks, walking tracks, sailing.... the lake is busy with activity. One of the best waterfront places I have visited in the world.

Man. This is another one of those things that I think are kinda nice... but not necessarily important to go visit. I think it's beneficial for people who have just shopped to have a nice place to relax and sit down, but it's not that great of place to visit, if you're looking for solid nature. Basically, the area seems... More
