    The Outer Alster, which is about 164 hectares and up to 4.5 meters deep, is the larger, northern part of the Alster lake. It is fed by the Alster in the north and the Osterbek and Wandse in the east. It flows in the south into the Binnenalster.Around this reservoir there are foot and cycle paths, which are very popular with hamburgers for rest and jogging. The almost continuously located on the shore path was marked for runners and runners with half kilometer stones and is 7.4 kilometers long. The Outer Alster itself is mainly used for sailing and rowing as well as pedal boating and standup paddling. As a sailing area, it is considered not so easy, as often required by the peripheral buildings and the merging streets wind conditions of sailors require - also applies here on the water basically "right before left" (Alster steamer excluded, the commercial shipping always has priority).Source:

    Round trips around or on the Inner and Outer Alster Lake as well as walks around the water are very popular with locals and tourists. Sunsets on the outer Alster lend a romantic flair and the adjacent attractions are worth a visit.
    With a stately size of 164 hectares, the Outer Alster on all the banks is a popular starting point for walks. For joggers, the paths along the water are also popular and small sailing ships and the Alster steamer make their rounds on the water.
    The Kennedy and Lombards Bridge separate the outskirts of the Binnenalster. The Lombards Bridge also marks the old course of the city fortification. Those who find the way to the Outer Alster too tedious, despite all the temptations, prefer the little round around the Binnenalster.

    This area of ​​the green belt around the Alster, west side of the district of St. Georg, is the busiest section of the entire route around the Outer Alster. The footpath is wide enough, there are also enough rest stops. However, you should keep enough distance from the bike path, because they pass quickly. The whole trail has many wonderful aspects, including this part.

    The Außenalster in the center of Hamburg is probably the most popular place in the Hanseatic city for walkers and joggers. The tour along the shore is very varied and offers a lot of greenery, stylish villas, beautiful views and even a visit to the White House. And one thing above all: recovery from the big city bustle.

    If you consider that flows in the back of the traffic from the Sechslingpforte and Mundsburger dam, you can not estimate these jetties with their gastronomy and views high enough.

    Round trips around or on the Inner and Outer Alster and walks around the water are very popular with locals and tourists. Sunsets on the Außenalster lend a romantic flair and the neighboring attractions are also worth a visit.
    With an impressive size of 164 hectares, the Außenalster is a popular starting point for walks on all shores. The paths along the water are also popular with joggers and small sailing ships and the Alster steamers make their rounds on the water.
    The Kennedy and Lombards bridges separate the outer from the Inner Alster. The Lombard Bridge also marks the old course of the city fortifications. Those who find the way around the Außenalster too laborious despite all the temptations prefer the small tour around the Inner Alster.

    Considering that flows in the back of the traffic from the Sechslingspforte and Mundsburger dam, one learns to appreciate these places with boat rests and gastronomy. The view is free.

    Hamburg's Außenalster is the theme park in Hamburg par excellence, on land and on the water. You will find peace only in certain places and at certain times of the day, the best morning. In the summer, on the weekends and at certain events it can be very crowded.

    Alongside the Alster, there are playgrounds and dog walks as well as benches and plenty of space for your own picnic blanket. Here you sit in the city center by the water and switch off your everyday life. No matter if the lunch break, the after-work cold drink or the weekend walk - everything is fun here in the sun.hamburg.mitvergnuegen.com/tipps/aussenalster
