Hamburg Beach Pearl

Hamburg Beach Pearl


Well-known excursion pub in Övelgönne

Hamburg’s Strandperle (beach pearl) in the Övelgönne district is a popular place for a day out that can look back on a long tradition. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Altona Milk Hall was located here, where visitors in traditional long bathing costumes could bathe in the river or drink a cup of milk. After the drinking hall was closed during the Second World War, it was reopened in 1949. In 1973, the current tenants took over the Strandperle as a meeting place for boat owners, pilots and pensioners who met here to drink beer and play skat. Even today, many day trippers enjoy the magic of this historic place – with their feet in the sand and a view of the container giants pulling up ahead.
