Hamburg Elbe Beach Blankenese

Hamburg Elbe Beach Blankenese


Hamburg's favourite place on the Elbe

Hamburgers don’t have to travel far to enjoy the breeze and walk barefoot through the sand. Hamburg’s Elbe beach in the district of Blankenese stretches for several kilometres towards the mouth of the Elbe. No wonder that even the “New York Times” named the Elbstrand one of Europe’s ten favourite places on the water in 2017. Here you can make a stop on a bicycle tour along the Elbe hiking trail to walk along the beach or watch the container ships. But be careful: Hamburg’s Elbe beach is not a bathing water. Swimming here can be dangerous due to the strong currents and shipping traffic.
