Hamburg’s most beautiful beach resides in this nature reserve, measuring at almost 173 acres. On the banks of the Elbe, visitors can not only marvel at the historically protected lighthouse, but also discover the rich offering of flora and fauna. In addition to frogs and turtles, sand lizards also call this area home. A deeper exploration of the area will lead you to the tide-shaped Elba meadows and sloping hillsides. A stroll along the paths of sand will lead you through a landscape rich with brush, woods, and inland dunes.
