Altona & Ottensen

Sustainable Highlights in Altona & Ottensen

Until far into the 20th century, Ottensen was an area covered by cobblestone alleys and dominated by small artisanal enterprises in inner courtyards, workers' pubs, and inner-city industries. Now, however, it has become one of Hamburg's liveliest and most popular trend areas. Buildings are still closer together than elsewhere in the city. To the south, the Elbe attracts visitors, and the harbour is not far away. Despite the hustle and bustle, Altona and Ottensen have remained livable and friendly - even and especially for families. And many an old inner courtyard workshop has been resettled by young upcycling designers who bring ideas and products for sustainable living. On this walk you will discover everything that will make your green heart pound - organic coffee at Torrefaktum Kaffeerösterei, organic herbal teas and natural cosmetics at Grün & Schön, upcycled furniture made out of old drawers at Entwurf Direkt Store. The green meadows at Altonaer Balkon or Volkspark Altona offer the perfect place to relax after your tour.

Between urban style & historical Flair Sustainable Highlights in Altstadt & HafenCity

The Altstadt, which gradually segues into the actual city with its offices and shopping streets, extends from the historical Speicherstadt and the narrow canals with the last remaining Medieval office buildings all the way to the Rathaus. It is only a short walk from one of Hamburg's oldest districts to the newest one: Hamburg's HafenCity is a test lab for urban models of the future. It aims to set an example for city planning that also prioritises social integration and ecological sustainability.
