Although the Elbe has a lot of ocean going commercial vessels goming in and out of Hamburg, it also is possible to enjoy water sports like sailing, kayaking and canoeing.

Of course you have to keep out of the main traffic route! People on those big cargo vessels might just not see you... !!!

So, for a relaxed boat trip it is best to stay just on one side!

Before you go, you also should get information about the tide schedule! Plan your trip according to the tide. Otherwise it might become a little frustrating, when actually the pedestrians on Elbufer-Wanderweg (scenic walk along the Elbe) are faster than you ;-)
