Die Alster in März

In Germany it is traditional to go on a Sunday afternoon walk, so yesterday since it was such a gorgeous day, I grabbed my camera and joined the rest of Hamburg for a Sunday afternoon stroll along the Alster.

At 9C, it's the perfect temperature for ice cream

Spring is definitely on its way

It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday, but after walking around the Alster for 2 hours my legs were sore.  I think perhaps that’s a sign that I need to go on more Sunday walks.

  1. Love the pics…especially the trees, gorgeous. I still can’t understand how the Germans can eat ice cream when it’s so cold outside!

      Thanks :) I actually did indulge in an ice cream as it was such lovely day out and it seemed the thing to do. It actually turned out not to be too cold for ice cream after all.

  2. The photos are brilliant. Thanks for sharing :)

    Those are beautiful photos !! You should check out Blankenese and the Suellberg. On the top of the Suellberg is a wonderful outdoor terrace cafe with a great view. The walk out there along the Elbe is also really beautiful.
