Parks & Green Spaces

GREEN. GREENER. HAMBURG! Discover the parks & green spaces in the city

When it gets warm and the sun shines, a trip to the city park is almost obligatory! Planten un Blomen is one of the most beautiful parks in the city. Every evening from March to October you can see the famous fountain shows. And the Schwarze Berge Game Park transports you into the heart of nature. Don't forget: In the Alte Land in Hamburg you can expect Nordic fruit yards, pink oceans of flowers and a fresh Elbe breeze!
