Hamburg and nature come together in the Alster river valley. It is here that city life and idyllic waterways achieve the perfect symbiosis.
Hamburg has been the gateway to the world since the 12th century and offers a correspondingly wide variety of options for a holiday. The Alster river valley (Alstertal) offers calm and relaxation, along with plenty of culture, cafes and restaurants nearby, as well as shopping opportunities at the Alstertal Shopping Centre with more than 240 stores. The region lies to the north of Hamburg in what used to be an area of forest villages, and now combines four of the city’s districts. Holidaymakers can make the most of the nature that surrounds them on the Alsterwanderweg hiking trail, jogging or cycling if they prefer. The river likewise offers a number of water sports options. Seasoned players and beginners alike will find perfect facilities for a round of golf in the resort of the Steigenberger Hotel Treudelberg. Despite its location surrounded by nature, the Alster river valley is located just ten kilometres from Hamburg Airport and enjoys correspondingly good public transport connections.
