“Heart of Hamburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

This beautiful lake is going to change your impressions of Hamburg. It has very special charm and makes the city look more aristocratic. Early in the morning you can see street cleaners feeding swans there. During the day it is a vivid place close to Rathaus with a lot of shopping. In the evening the area and the fountain are nicely illuminated. The place is the magnet.

“Shopping near the inner alster”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2007

I was blown away by the up-scale shopping in this area of Hamburg. You name the designer , you can find it. Great for window-shopping. Also just a nice area for s stroll and a meal in an outdoor cafe.
