As the days get warmer and sunnier, like every summer, Hamburg folks used to rainy weather can’t wait to spend time outside to get Vitamin D production rolling. We especially love spending time by or on the water, so on a sunny day, the channels and the Alster lake are crowded with boats, stand-up paddlers or sailors.
But spending time next to the water also releases our endorphins. Chapeau is a bar with a huge, newly built terrace with tons of blinking fairy lights right next to a channel in Winterhude. It is definitely a really romantic spot to sip on your Aperol Spritz and watch the people pass by on their boats or SUPs. In case you get hungry, you can also taste some of their grilled specialties – what about the dorado fillet with rosemary potatoes and chimichurri or the classic cheeseburger? Sometimes the crowd can be a bit posh, but the view and the atmosphere is definitely worth it. I suggest you make reservations right by the water to fully enjoy the vibes of a Hamburg summer.
