Altona & Ottensen

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Welcome to Altona & Ottensen!

The patchwork carpet in Hamburg's city districts. Whether for strolling, drinking coffee, walking or eating - Altona & Ottensen are located directly on the Elbe and surrounded by beautiful parks. In Altona brick walls radiate a rather rough charm, on the other side in the district Ottensen it is colourful and turbulent. In addition to cosy restaurants and pubs, there are numerous shops and boutiques that invite you to shop. And the most beautiful thing: the relaxing harbour, Elbe and Elbstrand are very close!

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Sternschanze & Karoviertel

The two districts around Schanzenstraße and Schulterblatt are always in motion. Here, it is colourful and lively, and it has become much fancier in the last few years. Still, the district in the borough of Altona has preserved much of its rough, leftist-alternative nonconformism.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Eimsbüttel & Eppendorf

Here, one can find magnificent old building façades, local and exquisite restaurants as well as fancy boutiques and owner-operated shops. While Eppendorf is rather fancy, one can feel the hanseatic serenity in Eimsbüttel. Both districts offer much green and water and are hence with good reason very popular neighbourhoods in Hamburg.
