The Alsterpark is located in the heart of the city, on the western shore of the Außenalster (the outer Alster lake). It is equally popular among locals and visitors. Its huge lawns are inviting for those who like to watch the world go by while lying in the sun. People come here to walk, skate, cycle and jog, as well as walk their dogs and push prams. There are cafes and kiosks that offer food and drinks, as well as several marked areas to barbecue.
