Walking, cycling or just relaxing: the Alsterpark is one of the most popular green areas in Hamburg. Especially, because of the breathtaking panorama view over the Alster.

Around Hamburger Außenalster are many green areas that invite for sunbathing, picnicking and other activities. Especially popular is the western part of the districts Rotherbaum and Harvestehude.

Above all, the magnificent view at the River is why the whole city is coming together here at every time of the day – from Monday to Sunday it’s high life.

If a walk or a run around the Alster, a cycling tour with the family, a picnic with friends or walking the dog – everything is possible at Alsterpark, it doesn’t matter what time of the day. 

In the early 1950s the green area was redesigned as park and recreation ground and since then is a popular place for peace seekers as well as action lovers. From here it’s only a short hop to an exercise trail or to different boat rentals that bring every Alster fan on the water. At the surrounding cafés, at the jetties or on the many meadows you can spend your whole day. 

Especially calm and idyllic is the Alsterpark in the early morning hours in summertime, just bevor the jogger start racing around the Alster. Then a very special atmosphere is in the air. And the sunrise that you can best enjoy from the jetty at Rabenstraße, is the perfect start in the day and compensates every early alarm.
