The Inner and Outer Alster Lakes are a central part of Hamburg city life. Whenever the sun is out, they fill up with sailers, paddlers and rowers. The Binnenalster (Inner Alster) is the smaller of the two lakes and the Außenalster (Outer Alster) is the larger one. The Outer Alster is surrounded by ancient trees, green parks and beautiful mansions of the Winterhude, St. Georg and Rothenbaum districts. Boats, canoes and kayaks can be hired at many spots all around the lake. Stand-up-paddle is also very popular.In cold winters the Alster can freeze over providing an extra-large ice-skating rink for the locals. Be sure to get a family photo in front of the fountains in the lake.
