    The Alsterwanderweg can be wonderfully explored on a kilometer-long route on foot or by bike. It runs beautifully right next to the Alsterlauf and changes more often the river side. By canoe, SUP o.a. You can drive here as well.

    The walking and cycling path is marked by the Hamburger Wanderverein e.V. with yellow directional arrows on trees and stones, some with signs. The total length of Kayhude to the Elbe is about 37 km.From the mouth of the Alster into the Elbe, the trail continues as Elbuferwanderweg. On these two routes, the Hanseatic city of Hamburg can be hiked and passed through from its northern to its western border.The headwaters of the Alster and the surrounding moors are protected, so the route from the source to Lemsahl-Mellingstedt does not run along the river. (The eastern branch of the trail, which does not start at the source, follows the river from Kayhude.) Most of the route leads directly along the Alster and is also excellent for cycling, especially the section in Alstertal to Hamburg-Ohlsdorf , Subsequently, stairs and short sections directly on the road make driving difficult. The hiking trail leads directly into the Hamburg city center. You can walk to the jetties and drive.
