Hamburg's North

Barmbek, Alsterdorf, Ohlsdorf and Duvenstedt

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Welcome to the north of Hamburg!

Or more precisely in Barmbek, Alsterdorf, Ohlsdorf and Duvenstedt. The north of Hamburg is a wonderful place to live. Thanks to good transport connections, you can quickly get to the city centre and have plenty of green space on your doorstep. Everything here is a bit more relaxed, but still varied.

Ohlsdorf Friedhof

The 400-hectare Hamburg cemetery is not only Hamburg's largest green space, but also the largest cemetery in Europe and the largest park cemetery in the world.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Hamburg South

Around Harburg's inland harbour, historical and modern architectural styles merge. It's maybe even a bit like HafenCity. Finkenwerder, on the other hand, has the charm of a fishing village. – Here, you see a quite different, almost rural side of Hamburg. Harburg and Finkenwerder are also good starting points for discovering the Hamburg metropolitan area.
