Go to Tickets
On our boat trip on the Alster lakes you enjoy dreamlike Hamburg perspectives on board of the oldest and only genuine Alster steamer. On the steamer "St. George" you will be set in ancient times. Faithfully restored and performed as before with a crew of three: captain, engineer and “Condukteur”.
During the approximately one-hour drive the captain maintains you with all the important information. We take you on a tour along the venerable department stores at the Inner Alster and via Lombard bridge to the outer Alster. Hamburg's most beautiful waters offer a magnificent view of the panorama of the city with its many towers. We drive to the Bellevue and the Uhlenhorst along the beautiful and elegant merchant mansions. The way back leads us on Harvestehuder shore along the Alsterparks back to the Jungfernstieg.
