Environmentally friendly discovery tour: Hamburg by bike
Hamburg’s 560-kilometer network of bike paths makes every kind of adventure possible. You can move quickly on your bike from district to district, from sight to sight. The StadtRAD, a widespread rental system with over 170 stations, favors environmentally friendly mobility in the city and is also particularly practical and uncomplicated for vacationers to use.
Hamburg’s historic Old and New Towns can be discovered on the “Green Ring”. The tour runs close to the city center on the former ramparts, touches the park “Planten un Blomen” and offers unforgettable views of the Alster with its fountain which is up to 96 meters high and the white sailboats all over it. Architecture is not neglected either, as the loop passes by the Art Mile. Galerie der Gegenwart, Kunsthalle, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe and the Deichtorhallen are all worth a stop before heading into the historically interesting Hafencity. At the Landungsbrücken, if you haven’t done it already before, you can reward yourself with a fish sandwich or a cool drink in one of the beach clubs. The tour is just under seven kilometers long and has hardly any differences in altitude.
