It was a very nice ride on the water. We found that the hour was absolutely enough to see Hamburg from the Alster. The boatswain was very personable and was able to tell us a few things about the buildings on the shore. You should be there 20 minutes earlier to get a seat by the window.

The boat had a glass roof with the solar cells and a good view from inside. There was also the opportunity to sit outside in the open at the back of the boat. Beautiful trip, where you got to see Hamburg from a slightly different side, and where you got to rest your feet. An hour on the Alster lakes was absolutely perfect in time.
