Sightseeing and Alster tour

COMBO: LINE A City Tour & 1-hour Alster Round Trip

Combine the LINE A day pass with a 1-hour Alster Round Trip by the ATG Alster-Touristik Shipping Company. Hop off the LINE A double-decker bus at Rathaus (City Hall) and go on a 1-hour boat trip on the Alster lakes. After having felt the Alster’s charm by boat you simply return to the bus stop and wait for the next bus to come along and continue the LINE A city tour.
The route of the 1-hour Alster Round Trip takes you on the inner and outer Alster, always in close proximity to the shore. Thus you’ll be able to see the magnificent villas and gardens from the water and you’ll understand why the Alster is nicknamed the pearl of the city centre. The Alster boats are equipped with an audio guide providing English commentary.
