your experience

Start your experience by redeeming your ticket aboard your cruise and heading to Pier 3. The comfortable boat will give you the perfect chance to relax and rejuvenate in the city while taking in the sights of Hamburg from a unique perspective. The manmade Alster Lake has been used for recreational purposes by residents and tourists since 1987! As you sail along the lake, you'll spot fascinating flora and fauna on the 1-hour trip.

You'll cruise past Alster Fountain, a 60-meter high fountain that often produces a rainbow in the sunlight. Get a spectacular view of the city, including the U. S. Consulate General and Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, as you sail along. You'll also see the Blue Mosque, a stunning structure with Iranian architecture built decades ago. Don't forget to take photographs of the church spires and bridges around the calm waters! An accompanying audio guide with English commentary will fill you in on the popular facts about the lake and the iconic buildings surrounding it.
