The Binnenalster is an artificial lake formed by the river Alster within the historic downtown area of the city of Hamburg in northern Germany. Binnen means inside—inside the old city walls, in this case. The Binnenalster is connected with the river Elbe via the Alsterfleet canal passing along the Alsterarkaden.
