    Since 1952 every ship with more than 500 BRT that passes by between sunrise and sunset will be welcomed and said goodbye
    by a signal and a voice. Have a look at the follwing link, unfortuantely it does not seem to be in english so far.

    Relax on the beach

    beach life at Wedel Strandbad (June 2010)
    3 more images

    Yes, Wedel has a beach, the Strandbad.
    And on warm, sunny summer days many people enjoy it. At the beach there is a beach club bar, where one can have something to eat and to drink. Behind the beach club there also is a playground for children.
    During the last years the quality of the water of the river Elbe has become better again, so that today bathing in the Elbe again is possible! And on the weekends from early May to end of September the DLRG (german life savers organisation) post next to the beach club is operating.
    Nevertheless, don't underestimate the dangers of bathing in a river where large vessels pass by! The outgoing undertow and the returning surge can be really dangerous!

    Boat Trip Across The Elbe

    by S.Cunis Written Aug 19, 2010
    ferry boat quay of the L��he-Schulay line

    Take a trip across the Elbe to the "Altes Land", to the "Lühe" estuary.
    You will have a nice boat trip on the Elbe, and on the other side you can go for a walk in the quiet scenery of a very typical fruit growing area. Excursions to the Altes Land are especially popular during cherry of aple blossom time.
    Or you can take your bicycles with you on the ferry boat and go for a bicycle tour through the Altes Land. There, on your way, you can discover some very beautiful traditional buildings.

    You can find their time table and tariffs on their web page.

    Welcome Point - Schulauer F��hrhaus

    Don't miss the Welcome Point. It is in the Schulauer Fährhaus.
    The Schulauer Fährhaus is a restaurant directly at the Elbe river, and you can watch all in coming and out going ships, while you enjoy your meal or coffee and cake.
    All ships visiting or leaving Hamburg are greeted by having their national anthem played while the flags are dipped (lowered), they are welcomed and while the flags are rising again, some more music is played. And for the visitors in the restaurant also information about the ship is given.

    They have a webcam: http://www.welcome-point.de/
