    Lilienstein

    Hiking Highlight

    The climb to the Lilienstein is definitely worth it. No matter if the weather is good or bad. :) We walked up the Nordsteig - but rather recommend the Südsteig, as it is easier.

    St. Pauli-Elbtunnel (Alter Elbtunnel)

    Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)

    It's worth it because it's just a piece of Hamburg's history that still lives today - a little journey through time. In summer there is also a welcome cool-down, because it is nice and fresh in the tunnel. ;)

    Wildschützensteig

    Hiking Highlight

    Steep ascent to the Schrammsteinen, but still without large climbing parts. Good expansion given by ladders and stairs. Exhausting, but you will be rewarded by the later views on the Schrammsteinen very well.
