This lake front is the most beautiful area in a large city that I can think of. It is lined with beautiful trees and shrubs, it has a very wide walking/strolling/riding path and is bordered by some of the most amazing houses in the city. We walked early in the a.m. and late in the evening and it is one of my best memories of Hamburg...don't miss it!!

Beautiful setting, restaurants on the water cycling tracks, walking tracks, sailing.... the lake is busy with activity.
One of the best waterfront places I have visited in the world.

Man. This is another one of those things that I think are kinda nice... but not necessarily important to go visit. I think it's beneficial for people who have just shopped to have a nice place to relax and sit down, but it's not that great of place to visit, if you're looking for solid nature. Basically, the area seems like .. a great place to shop with a lake on its side vs. a great lake to wax philosophical in with a place to shop on the side. This definitely is the former.

Add it to your itinerary if you just went shopping or had a long day at the museum. It'll be fries to your main entree.

I always enjoy spending time either walking round the lake or by taking a relaxing boat trip whenever I am in Hamburg. They are a refuge from the hussle and bustle of this vibrant city centre.
The Alster Lakes are easily reached by public transport and are surrounded by many hotels, restaurants, bars and shops and are within walking distance of some excellent shopping centres, the beautiful Rathaus, the Arkades and the Fleet.
Definitely worth a visit.

Big lake, but it's not very interesting. I found it to be a bit durty around the lake, and it's generally boring - there's a lake but really nothing more.
