In the winter you can warm up with a hot drink and a strong meal after a walk along the dikes...more
Tonne 122 (or just the "Tonne"; and most locals know, which place you are talking about) is the restaurant at the Hamburger Yachthafen. You can sit outside in the summer on the terrace or upstairs on the balcony, and inside in the winter.

Inside the hotel and restaurant building is as well a little museum. See more at the homepage of the ferry house.

The Batavia is a small theater in the lower deck of an old ship.They have a regular schedule of concerts, jazz, folk, and related styles. They also have other small, presentations (plays, political cabaret, literature....)In the afternoon they also somtimes have theater plays for children.more
When you enjoy a nice theater presentation, have a look at the schedule of the Theater Wedel. The actors are mainly very talented amateurs. The director and the actors work with a lot of dedication.Quite often, there are only a few empty seats left, and you better should make reservations before you go.more

The easiest way to get to Wedel from Hamburg is by S--Bahn line S 1. Wedel is the last stop. It takes about 40 minutes from Hamburg Hauptbahnhof, 30 minutes from Altona and 15 from Blankenese.
But you also can take the bus.
The bus has several stops in Wedel. To visit the Welcome Point, go to Schulauer Fährhaus.
...or you can take a boat. When you have time, and the weather is fine, this is certainly the most relaxing way to get there.
