10 colorful autumn walks through Hamburg
The golden season covers Hamburg in a sparkling robe. We just can't get enough from the bright sea of colors in autumn. When the first leaves turn color, it's the perfect time for extensive autumn walks. We show you Hamburg's most beautiful places for walking and hiking.
In the autumn months, the Falkenstein riverbank attracts visitors to take a leisurely stroll along the water. With a view over the Elbe, you can enjoy nature here and recharge your batteries. Ambitious walkers can start the run at the Oevelgönner Museum harbor and stroll down the Elbe to the Falkensteiner Ufer in about two hours.
Hiking in Hamburg's flat country? The mountains around Harburg make it possible. South of the Elbe, dense forests and large areas of heathland invite you to take excursions into nature. On the marked hiking trails you can admire the autumnal colorfulness of the trees. The "climbers" will also be rewarded with idyllic views and wonderful silence.

Ohlsdorf Cemetery is not only the largest cemetery in Europe, but also an inviting park with impressive natural areas. In autumn, the cemetery in the north of Hamburg turns into a colorful sea of leaves. The park offers the ideal opportunity for long walks outside in the fresh air.
