Like the Elbe the Alster has influenced significantly the urban development of Hamburg. For many people the Outer Alster is popular. But just a few know that the Alster is 55 km long and flows as a small river through the city.
Your tour begins with a bike ride on the banks of the Alster. After experiencing the river from the perspective of the cyclist, you switch from the bicycle to a canoe after a distance of about 10 km at the height of the restaurant “Mellingburger Schleuse”. You paddle on the most beautiful route, which is about 10 km long, through nature, parks and past properties with villas. A slight current and many meanders make the Alster an unforgettable experience.
Treat yourself and enjoy the end of your tour with a little barbecue.
