For a peaceful excursion offering great views of Hamburg, don't miss this lovely sailing excursion on Alster Lake. Join your fellow mariners as you set sail on the calm waters, and fantastic views of city landmarks, verdant parks, and one of the biggest churches in the city. As you relax and cruise, sit back with an included drink, and take in the fantastic views of sunset over the city.

Great way to relax and see the lake and sunset on a small wooden sailboat. Very peaceful and quiet way to wind down after a busy day in the city. The boat can only hold a dozen people so very intimate.

Henning is a laid-back and kind host who clearly enjoys sharing “his” Alster with others. The serene sunset cruise was the perfect welcome to the vibrant city of Hamburg.

A relaxing and beautiful way to enjoy Hamburg. Peaceful and nice way to meet people. While there wasn’t much wind, the captain showed us all of Alster Lake as we enjoyed drinks. This isn’t a tour, don’t expect much narration or sight seeing Definitely recommended....More
