This family-friendly district in Hamburg is home to numerous small parks, green spaces and playgrounds, all of which bring a touch of nature to city life. The locals also have an environmentally-friendly outlook, as a great deal of groups and associations with roots in the environmental and ecological movements of the 1980s and 1990s are headquartered here. Nowhere else in Hamburg can you find so many organic food shops and eco-cooperatives. Indeed, in Eimsbüttel, time has not stood still over the last decades. On your walk through Eimsbüttel you will soon discover that there are plenty of sustainable cafés and shops to choose from: How about a scoop of pink beetroot ice cream at Eisbüttel, a vegetarian/vegan breakfast in a cosy atmosphere at Café Zeitraum or a noble dinner made out of fresh and regional ingredients at Heimatjuwel? The weekly market at Grundstraße is perfect for a stroll on a Saturday morning, and you can get freshly-baked bread rolls at Die Kleine Konditorei or Bio Konditorei Eichel for a late breakfast afterwards. Sustainable fashion, accessoires and jewellery can be bought at various shops such as Hafendieb Store or Del Mundo Vacano. If you need a break after all this shopping and feasting, you will find wonderful, quiet places close to nature at the shore of the Isebekkanal or in the park "Am Weiher".
