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.

Hamburg-Fuhlduttel Airport is ten kilometres from Binnenalster using the B433 motorway, but there are plenty of airport transfer options for visitors who don't drive, including taxis, shuttles, buses, and subway and commuter rails. The S1 Line of the S-bahn commuter rail connects the airport to the central rail station, and there are several types of trains that serve the city from numerous European cities. You can also drive to Binnenalster using the extensive German Autobahn network. Public transport in Hamburg is very efficient, and you can access any part of the city and suburbs using the U-bahn (underground), buses and taxis.
