Surrounded by reeds and floodplain forests, green meadows, old half-timbered houses with thatched roofs, colourful seas of flowers on the banks of the Dove Elbe, centuries-old churches in Baroque style and enchanting bathing lakes, the southeastern outskirts of Hamburg have a truly calming effect on the senses. To the north, you'll find the Holzhafen and Boberg Lowlands nature reserves , where - with a bit of luck - you may see white-tailed eagles circling.

The Wittmoor in the north of Hamburg is a true natural paradise. As one of the last raised bogs in Hamburg it is also a rarity! Over 8,000 years of history have shaped the 106 hectare nature reserve. So there is plenty of space for an undisturbed walk past impressive flora and fauna. You can reach the Wittmoor with the HVV in about one hour. Even the way with the U1 is worth the trip, because it leads you above ground through a varied landscape.

The Stadtpark Hamburg is the classic among the green excursion destinations. On more than 150 hectares, you stretch out meadows and smaller forest sections that make visitors almost forget that they are in the metropolis of Hamburg. In the Stadtpark Hamburg you can barbecue, do sports or just relax in the sun on designated areas. In summer, numerous open-air concerts take place on the large meadow in the Stadtpark Open-Air. By the way, the Planetarium Hamburg is located in the centre of the city park and is one of our favourite places in Hamburg.

The Boberg Lowlands offer a completely different landscape. On Hamburg's inland dunes, you feel like you are right on the North Sea - only the sound of the ocean is missing. In addition, the Boberg Lowlands offers, a heath, marshes and a lake to swim in. A stroll through this area takes you to completely different and almost surreal worlds.

Exotic worlds in the middle of the city - the display greenhouses of the Botanical Garden of the University of Hamburg offer everyone the opportunity to dive into the realms of science. Divided into tropical, subtropical, cactus and fern houses, 2800 square metres of plants from all climate zones of the earth are exhibited. Since the houses are located directly in Planten un Blomen, a walk through the green parks afterwards is recommended.

Between Hamburg and Stade along the Elbe, there is a very special area. The Alte Land, known as the largest fruit-growing area in Northern Europe, is a popular destination for both locals and tourists. This is mainly due to the colourful orchards, which bathe the Alte Land in a rich pink, red or white depending on the season. In July the cherry blossoms and in late summer the apples Before that, in May, the big flower festival with the crowning of the Altländer Flower Queen takes place. In addition to the fields, the Elbe, various half-timbered houses and old farms, some of which offer a rich selection of coffee and cakes, form a wonderful backdrop for a relaxing summer day.
