Övelgönne is part of Othmarschen, which is a quarter of Altona, which in turn is one of the seven boroughs Hamburg is made up of. It's complicated, I know. Anyway, Övelgönne is beautiful and the view is amazing (click here for an aerial view). I went there a few times last summer. There's a beach bar called Strandperle, which is a great place to hang out. Yes, you heard that right! There is a beach in Hamburg.
