Alster Lakes, Hamburg, Germany – Heroes Of Adventure

Alster Lakes, Hamburg, Germany

The 160-hectare lake in the heart of the city is a true paradise for sailors, rowers and paddlers, but has a depth of no more than 2.50 metres.

It was created as early as the 13th century by damming the little Alster river and its even smaller feeder rivers. Its opulent grasslands on the edge of the bank offer plenty of opportunities to be close to the water, right in the middle of the city. Just kicking back on a blanket or a deckchair, jogging “all the way round the Alster”, taking a walk, playing frisbee and boules – the options are endless for you to enjoy this splendid green oasis on land. During some winters, you will even be able to make your way across the lake to the other bank without getting your feet.
