The traditional Alster steamer
The traditional Alster steamer has been a familiar picture on the Alster for years. With their straight, high structures they are reminiscent of their predecessors, the steam-driven barges of the last century, but which they are vastly superior to in technical terms. These vessels are highly manoeuvrable, which is useful in the small Alster area.
Maximum 70 people or 50 people with catering
Flat-bottomed vessel type
The ATG’s flat-bottomed vessels present themselves as contemporary and modern. With their low height it is possible for them to leave the Alster area and to go “on tour”. Through the large roof windows you have an open view to the beautiful warehouses, and the comfortable, spacious passenger compartment offers ample possibilities to develop your tour according to your individual taste.
Maximum of 80 people or 60 people with catering
Exclusive vessel type
The salon ship “Goldbek” is an ideal venue for stylish celebrations. With its sophisticated, high-quality features, it certainly deserves its nickname “Jewel on the Alster”. Or would you like it a bit more futuristic? On the solar catamaran “Alstersonne”, you enjoy state-of-the-art technology as well as unique views in all directions thanks to its all-round glazing.
