The Zoological Museum Hamburg offers one of the largest collections of animal specimens in Germany and is a great opportunity to take a close look at the animal world.

A wonderful alternative for animal lovers who are not enthusiastic about Hagenbeck's zoo when the weather is bad: The Zoological Museum of the University of Hamburg presents preparations of birds, insects, hooves and other animals on 2000 square metres. Many school classes and painting courses have already been guests here, but the Zoological Museum is also an exciting destination for families. The museum's highlights include the former NDR walrus "Antje", a bidentate narwhal, various skeletons and models of other whale species and an Amur leopard. There are also specimens of all Central European bird species, rhinos, okapis, polar bears and brown bears. Those who would like to be informed by the experts should visit one of the Sunday family tours. Best of all, admission to the exhibition is completely free.

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.
