“Amazing view right in front of the harbour. Having a little barbecue / bottle of wine and the world will be fine at this lovely place... Not a secret tip anymore and packed on the weekends but still nice though”

Point of Interest
“All along the river Elbe is a path that you can walk. Ideally you'll take one of the little ferries from St. Pauli Landungsbrücken to Ovelgoenne and from there walk down the beach. There's also a paved way just a few meters up from the beach which leads you further down. In summer this is the place to have a beer at the Strandperle bar and sit in the sand while watching large ships float by.”
