Plenty... More

We enjoyed the walk from the city, some lovely plants and trees by the lake. Nice to have some quiet after the hussle of the city. Some lovely buildings along the path too, enjoyed looking at those.

If you visit Hamburg, do not leave without seeing the Alster. The best way is on one of the Alster boats which regularly travel the up and down the area.

This is just a beautiful place and if you are in Hamburg you should stop here. All of the areas are easy to reach by S-Bahn or U-Bahn.

I was exploring Hamburg and came across this artificial lake that is formed from the Alster River as it flows to the Elbe river. The Aussenalster is the larger of the 2 lakes with the other being the Binnenalster. It is a quiet spot in the city to walk along and relax with nice views.
