Glückstadt

Nordfriesland
Just half an hour from the city, this spot by the Stör estuary is a godsend for the Hamburg scene. There's even a 50m standing-depth area when the tide floods up to the dyke. Otherwise just walk a little way towards the middle of the Elbe – it's no problem keeping away from the ferry channel, particularly in westerly winds. The currents mean it's not ideal for beginners though. Despite the silhouette of the Brokdorf nuclear power station on the horizon, idyllic Elbe prevails: huge ships glide past sheep grazing on green dykes. Apart from what they leave behind, it's not as mucky as other mudflat venues!
