I recently moved to Hamburg and the lake is quite beautiful! It is a great place to get some cardio in. There are always people running even later at night. It was amazing to be here to get to experience when the lake froze and had 20 cm of ice and the city declared it safe to go on. The Alstereisvergnügen was a great festival and despite the cold was an amazing experience. I believe it was the first time in 15 years that this happened so don't expect it again soon!

If you just want to have a nice walk, it is a very nice place to go. Some small food places to have a small snachk, ice cream or drink. Check first how long you wanna stay there cause the lake is big and you got to decide where to start and where to stop. Sailing offers avaiable at some spots. Try to choose a sunny day ;-). Many people use the Außenalster to do some sports like jogging, walking etc..

no way I travel to Hamburg without running at least once on a very well signposted path around Aussenalster: they even have drinking water on the way. Somebody told me that there is one direction women run and one men run....I did not find out yet: so I will come back!!!

Located in the centre of the city the Alster is a MUST SEE when you visit Hamburg.

Walking around takes about an hour but the view of the lake and the city from different points makes it worth it.

If you run or jog I can recommend this place!

It is possible to circle the lake - about 8 km and it is very active, even in November. Possible to do sailing, jogging, walking, meditating... Very pleasant place.
