The Inner Alster is the smaller part of the Alster and can be recognized characteristically by the Alster fountain, which can reach a height of up to 60 meters. Today's Inner Alster was created around 1250 by building a dam to dam the Alster for mill purposes. The first "city water art" once stood on the site of today's Alsterhaus and supplied the old town with water from the Alster.
Good to know:

The Inner Alster is on average no deeper than 3 meters
