Hamburg Off The Beaten Path: 106 reviews and 167 photos
This small river is only 20km long but has at least 5 names: It starts with the name Wandse. This name derives of the old German word Wand, which means a border between two villages. The former village Wandsbek has its name from the river. Wandsbek is now a part of Hamburg and it is the place where I work. Later the Wandse changes to be the Rahlau, then the Eilbek and the Eilbek Channel and the Mundsburg Channel. The Wandse ends in the main Hamburgian river and lake: Alster.
There is a lovely path to walk along the Wandse. It takes about one hour from Wandsbek to Alster. This part goes mainly through very urban landscape, but hat a lot of trees and places to have a rest. In the other direction the path along the Wandse brings you to the outskirts of Hamburg with some lovely villages and forrests near Volksdorf.
