Do cycle all he way around it.....not always clear where to go but it’s hard to get lost and in Hamburg you can ride on the pavements! We used the free bikes offered by our hotel but you can also use the red city bikes.

Hamburg's quaint and this lake adds to the charm. Walk, run or dine around it and it refreshes the mind. Takes relaxation to a different scale. A must visit. Go sailing in the summer!

Nice large lake which is nice to walk along or take a boat ride (only for the hardy in winter). Some nice venues around the lake to get a good view, notably the Alex restaurantat the bottom end.

Even with non optimal wheather biking along the lake is enjoyable. The more historic neighbourhoods house beautiful villas. There are a few cafes with terraces on the lake. Also a good area for walking and jogging.

I visited during December when there was a Christmas market next to the lake. There was lots of food & drink stalls with the stunning backdrop of the lake which had massive Christmas tree in the middle. Worth a visit
