Lovely and charming place if you like walking. You will find true hamburgians here on weekends strolling along the River or through the Treppeniertel. Worth a trip.

I love it! Countless stairs and alleys, great views of the water, the beautiful houses and finally the great beach at the river. For every traveller who wants to discover something special, far away from the hustle and bustle.
