Living in the green areas and enjoying the waterfront
Along the Elbe river you will discover the lush and fancy suburbs that you might have seen if your were entering the port of Hamburg at daytime with your cruise ship. We will visit Övelgönne and Blankenese, the very famous parts of "holiday atmosphere" in Hamburg: wonderful individual houses, parks, and driving along the Elbe River with charming little restaurants and places to rest.
There is beach life and a lively atmosphere. We will disover our highest hill, the Süllberg which is 80 m high (!) and we will drive down there to the Elbe shores and enjoy a lunch an good wine there.
On our way back into the city we will tour around the Alster lake and the beautidul neighbourhoods thers.
we will take 5 hours to visit the shores of the Elbe River, starting at the Harbour city, -where probably your ship will be docking- driving on to Övelgönne. We will go on by car driving further down the famous "Elbchaussee" and will stop having a look at the beach. Driving to the Süllberg we will have a beauiful view from above and will drive down to the river. You will discover the charme of this favorite living area and places were most Hamburgers like to spend their weekends and the evenings at warm summer evenings. You'll enjoy a beautiful view on the Elbe River and immense ships coming down the Elbe to the Port of Hamburg. WE will have lunch there at a very nie restaurant with a view on the river. From there we will drive back nto town visiting other charming neighborhoods.
