We spent two hours on a nice boat trip on the Alster cruising also some internal waterways. It was a lovely experience. N.B. the explanations on the boat are only given in German.

A lovely peaceful way to spend a couple of hours sailing around the lake and surrounding canals. Make sure the boat you choose has english commentary on board or you will not have a clue what is going on. The boats have toilets and a bar, a large covered area with table and chairs and a small seated outside area. Gorgeous on a sunny afternoon.

Take a Sunday stroll along the Alster, it's what Hamburgers do. The view is spectacular from whatever vantage point, and the majority of it is pedestrian accessible. When the spring bulbs are in bloom, the sailboats glide across the water, and the cafes are open it's perfection.

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.
