Binnenalster, or “Inner Alster”, is the smaller part of Alster Lake, an artificially created body of water in the centre of Hamburg. The lake and its surroundings are such a cherished part of the cityscape that all buildings in the area, including the lovely Rathaus, must have copper or white roofing so as not to distract from its abundant beauty. Whilst most of the lake-side parks are located in the Outer Alster area, the Binnenalster esplanades offer plenty of summer activities, host a springtime Japanese Blossom Festival, and transform into a crystalline wonderland around Christmastime.
- Enjoy picnics, barbecues, sunbathing and strolling through the beautiful parks and public gardens surrounding Binnenalster in central Hamburg.
- Charter a boat for fishing or cruising the Alster River, and enjoy numerous water sports like kayaking, canoeing, and sailing from April to October in Hamburg.
- Experience the joys of Alstervergnügen, an annual autumnal street fair complete with live musical entertainment, food and wine vendors, beer gardens and game booths.
