Hope

AGS_3561-Edit

Hope, the magical wold which makes us all go round and round till we read there. It is to see the fine ray of light even in darkness.

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.”

John Lennon

 

 

Alster Lake in Hamburg

agstd-9

It was created as early as the 13th century by damming the little Alster river and its even smaller feeder rivers. Its opulent grasslands on the edge of the bank offer plenty of opportunities to be close to the water, right in the middle of the city. Just kicking back on a blanket or a deckchair, jogging “all the way round the Alster”, taking a walk, playing frisbee and boules – the options are endless for you to enjoy this splendid green oasis on land. During some winters, you will even be able to make your way across the lake to the other bank without getting your feet wet. Naturally, the Alster is surrounded by cafés and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal or drink with a splendid view of the water.
