Hamburg’s beach at the river Elbe delights locals as well as tourists with mile-long fi ne sand and a
metropolitan fl air. Fresh air and sun worshippers stroll around and relax and at the same time enjoy
the view to the port and watch the incoming ships. The old captains’ houses and the open-air museum
for old boats tell their own history of Hamburg. Via the so called Stairway-to-Heaven with its 126
steps, the Elbchaussee can be reached.
