    Whether on foot, by bike, by car or by Alster steamer: the white facades and copper-covered roofs of the buildings around the Hamburg Inner Alster offer the viewer a very special panorama. It is not for nothing that the area on the Inner Alster in Hamburg is also known as the “Good Room in Hamburg”. You can shop happily on Jungfernstieg and Ballindamm, and enjoy the great view of the city of Hamburg on the new Jungfernstieg and on the Lombardsbrücke.

    The Jungfernstieg stretches along the southern bank of the Hamburg Alster. The historic promenade is the linchpin in the center of the Hanseatic city. Its name goes back to a Sunday rite of wealthy Hamburg families in the middle of the 17th century. In 1665, by planting rows of trees, the dam was transformed into an attractive promenade. From then on, Hanseatic families led their unmarried daughters to walk there on Sundays, hoping to find a suitable marriage candidate for them.

    The Jungfernstieg was Germany's first street, which was paved in 1838.

    The Jungfernstieg was originally called Reesendamm and was built around 1235 as a dam for the damming of the Alster. The pent-up water should drive a grain mill erected on the wall.

    Today's promenade was redesigned in 2005 and completed in 2006. The Alster Pavilion is the only building that has remained. The Jungfernstieg is the traffic junction of underground and S-Bahn trains, and the landing stage for the white "Alster steamers". Locals and visitors alike enjoy the panorama in good weather.

    The traditional department store "Alsterhaus", the current passage "Hamburger Hof", the "Streitshaus" and the "Heine-Haus" are located on Jungfernstieg. The "Neue Jungfernstieg" with the hotel "Vier Jahreszeiten" runs on the west side of the Inner Alster. On the east side of Ballindamm with the newly built "Europa-Passage".

    The Binnenalster, in particular the Jungfernstieg, is next to the harbor the second hub in Hamburg. It is the promenade, a noble shopping opportunity, the transport hub of the U- and S-Bahn and the starting point of the "Alster Steamer". In addition to the harbor, the area around the Binnenalster is a major tourist destination.

    The Jungfernstieg was formerly called Reesendamm. In 1665, when it was converted into a boulevard, rich Hanseatic merchants had their unmarried daughters, the "maidens," stroll on Sunday to find a potential marriage candidate. This is how the Reesendamm became Jungfernstieg.

    At this exposed point is the Windsbraut, from which one has the best views over the Inner Alster.
    "Die Windsbraut", bronze sculpture on the waterfront, was created in 1986 by Hans Martin Ruwoldt.

    The Binnenalster, which covers an area of ​​about 18 hectares, is the smaller, southern part of the Alster lake. It is fed by the Outer Alster in the northeast and flows in the southern corner below the Jungfernstieg on the Kleine Alster in the direction of the Elbe. Private motor ship traffic is not permitted on the Binnenalster with a few exceptions.

    The Inner Alster is considered the "good parlor of Hamburg" and strict building regulations (Inner Alster Regulation) ensure that this ensemble is not disturbed. The view from the Lombard Bridge to the five church towers and the tower of the town hall must be clear. The roofs of the adjoining houses must be covered with copper, because the formation of verdigris should increase the contrast to the bright facades. Facade advertising is not permitted.

    This gives you the best view of this panorama from the Lombards Bridge. On the left, the Hapag-Lloyd office building (Ballindamm), on the right, the five-star superior hotel "Four Seasons" (Neuer Jungfernstieg). In the middle of the Jungfernstieg with the Alsterhaus, the branch of the Dresdener Bank, the Hamburger Hof and the Heine Haus. Transport hub for underground and S-Bahn and jetty for the Alster ships.

    In 2005/06 the look of the Jungfernstieg was completely redesigned. Except for the Alster Pavilion, all of the investor's buildings were demolished. The entire Jungfernstieg was lightened on both sides. The row of trees in the middle of the street was removed, the street narrowed, but at the same time the sidewalks widened. This gave events such as the popular Alster pleasure more space. The completed conversion, including the redesign of the pier, was completed with an official inauguration ceremony on May 20, 2006.

    Starting point for round trips over the Inner and Outer Alster with the Alster-Touristik or the steam-powered "St. Georg" of the association Alsterdampfschiffahrt e.V ..

    The fountain can be seen in summer and the Christmas tree in winter.
