Beach Bars - the best spots for a drink by the water

Want to feel the sand between your toes in the middle of the city? Catch some rays on a lounge chair by the Elbe river as you watch the ships go by, drink in hand? If this sounds like paradise to you, why not spend summer exploring Hamburg’s many beach bars, beach clubs and outdoor bars. Here are some of our favourites.

28° Strandbad Wedel (Wedel, Hakendamm 2)
From old kiosk to stylish beach club, this hotspot offers everything you’d expect from a trip to the beach, especially hot beats and cool drinks. 130 tons of the finest Baltic sand were even shipped in to transform the riverbanks into a holiday oasis in the middle of Wedel.
