The Inner Alster Lake is located at the city centre at Jungfernstieg, together with the Outer Alster Lake with its green parks and elegant white buildings the Alster Lake is a delight for the eyes. Y ou can take an exquisite stroll along its waterside for 7.4 kilometres, stopping now and then at small cafes like the Alsterperle and letting your gaze wander. You can also rent a rowing boat from Bodo's landing stage and enjoy the Alster Lake from the water.


The Elbphilharmonie is probably Hamburg's best-known international building. The renowned 'Elphi', completed in 2016, is one of the tallest buildings in the city and is praised for its acoustics. Of course, tickets for concerts sell out very quickly. Alternatively, you can also go up to the public plaza on the longest escalator in Europe and enjoy the magnificent panorama.
