Henning is a laid-back and kind host who clearly enjoys sharing “his” Alster with others. The serene sunset cruise was the perfect welcome to the vibrant city of Hamburg.

First experience when we arrived in Hamburg! We had a great time on the boat with the sun going down. Surely would recommend it to everyone visiting the city! Thanks!

A relaxing and beautiful way to enjoy Hamburg. Peaceful and nice way to meet people. While there wasn’t much wind, the captain showed us all of Alster Lake as we enjoyed drinks. This isn’t a tour, don’t expect much narration or sight seeing Definitely recommended....More

Nice little pedal boats to take along the Alster and seeing the first row of delightful houses built around the lake. All of us enjoyed the hour spent greatly.

We spent a great afternoon on the Alster in Hamburg with Henning. It was all very chilled as we hoped, and he made it really easy for us (including supplying some beers/ bottled water from the cafe on the jetty). The lake is a great...More

When I visited Hamburg with my son this summer, I looked for attractions and activities beyond "the usual". So I came across Henning and the Grosse Freiheit, a beautiful two master. Already the email contact was very friendly. Since the weather was not so nice,...More
