Perfect for real water lovers, Finkenwerder offers a very special Bäderland experience: the only swimming pool with a view of the River Elbe! If you like the idea of watching the AIDA sail past as you do your lengths, this is the place for you! We all know that exercise is healthy, and once you’ve burnt all those calories you can replace them with French fries and mayonnaise! Better still, this pool doesn’t get as busy as many others in the city.

Half-pipes might not be the first thing that spring to mind when you think of Hamburg, but there is one at Rüschpark! If skateboarding isn’t really your thing, the park also has a play area, a sports field and a barbecue area. It’s also a great place to enjoy a close-up view of the container ships approaching the port while you relax.

No more fish, please! Sometimes, there’s nothing better than a sausage with curry sauce. At Imbiss Engels, they’re cooked on a lava grill – and you can taste the difference! The location right by the water makes the snack even better. For a more formal dinner, head to Tarik Rose’s Restaurant Engel which is both sophisticated and down-to-earth.
