If you're having half a day of, this is a really nice treat. You take the ferry to Övelgönne (because taking the ferry is much better than the bus!) and get off there and just walk along with all the other people who know what's...More

When I heard Hamburg had a beach, I was very curious to check it out and my friends in Hamburg told me to go there. Now, if you are a normal human being who's been to the beach in the Mediterranean, then we will agree...More

Writing from the point of view of the Elbe beach in Blankenese, it's a wonderful beach, very sandy, wonderful to walk on with bare feet, and excellent for grilling sausages! Going along the road, it has a lighthouse in the middle, and further along, a...More

Nice and cozy place. The city is usually cold and wet, for what I've heard and experienced, so I wouldn't tell anyone to expect sun at this beach. But it's still a cool place to hang around and have a taste of the local lifestyle.

I felt a bit sad for my friend who lives in Hamburg that this is what passes as a beach. The sand is a dirty brown colour and there are a lot of large black rocks everywhere. Admittedly coming from Perth I’m used to a...More

Taking the bus or s1 train to Blankenese then walking down the steep paths and steps to the strand is well worth it for a fascinating waterfront walk. There are grand mansions clinging to the hillside on one side and the sandy 'beaches' of the...More

Spent a lovely day here there are bbqs on the beach and the children can paddle waves quite big when boats pass by. Nice and relaxing and there was a cafe where you could sit and relax on the outdoor seating area. Lovely views as...More

Very interesting to see the beach at river side if you are citizens of the city by the sea, you never need to go to river to swim. It is nice to go and enjoy the sun:)
