This is how the center of a perfect city should be, although being the center of germanys second biggest city you always have the place and space to take some time and space out for you and relaxed moments.

It is the larger of two lakes created by ponding the Alster river. Enjoy the boat ride. Saw Hamburg from the waterside - the beautiful architecture, spires of churches, bridges, parks, water birds, plants. Taken a lot of landscape photos as well as selfies.

It's a beautiful lake. It's really nice place to enjoy some water rides. There is a lot of calmness in this beautiful place and it really makes one relaxed and happy. Strongly recommended to enjoy and visit this place with a pedal boat. It's really worth it.

This 7,4 km long trip around Aussenalster is most enjoying. There is a very fine life and natur to see along the way. Best in clear weather.

I love Hamburg because of the water so this giant inner lake is very typical for the city. Either by boat, bike or on foot, taking a tour of the Außenalster is very relaxing. You have a very nice view of the lake and nature but the beautiful architecture of the villas surrounding the lake is also not to ignore!

I do recommend to take a walk arround the Aussenalster or take one of the many ferries. A lot of people do the sport by running arround the Aussenalster.

There's such a nice view from there. I spent hours just looking around, taking pics and watching people. There's a cool fountain almost in the middle of it, and the place is surrounded by many shops (including an Apple Store), subway stations, restaurants and stuff.
