It was a sunny spring warm afternoon. The light was perfect and the breeze was gentle. Lots os people exercising while flowers started to bloom.

Not a must do but a pleasant hour though the narration is in German ( For English you get an audio guide which was difficult to hear above the amplified German Guide ). Better is to ride a ferry in the Elbe, free if you've got Hamburg Card.

We took the Alster boat trip (schippern) from Jungfernstieg (city center of Hamburg), going round the inner(smaller) and outer Alster lake. The journey lasted about an hour, it was a nice experience but shame the commentary was only in German.

Nice place to chill in city centre , boat trips and boat hire reasonable price. Also found on hot day it was a good place as a tourist to be able rest while sight seeing on a boat trip.

We boarded a boat at Alster lake. It was not the smartest boat, docked at the lake, despite the attire of the captain welcoming us on board, but was comfortable and provided a smooth journey.
You pay on board, and the ticket collector (or should I say bus conductor) complete with machine appears to have escaped from a 1960's UK sitcom - all part of the charm.
The trip lasted about 45 minutes. The sights were stunning and the commentary prolific, but I cannot speak German, so only understood the gist of what was being said. My fault I know, but be warned.
