Hamburg is green: with the two large city parks, the Ohlsdorf cemetery, the Alstervorland and the Wallanlagen in the city center, Hamburg has lots of nature and offers many opportunities to move around the city on a free tour with a Greeter, even as a pedestrian and cyclist.

It’s not only around the Inner and Outer Alster that Hamburg can be excellently explored by bicycle (and on foot)
