Every fall starting in September, there is a real highlight in the north of Hamburg: Bellowing stags in the Duvenstedter Brook.

Foxes or cranes also cross your paths here. In this fascinating moorland with its rich flora and fauna, the photos for the next self-made calendar are quickly collected. In autumn, starting in September, there is a real highlight in the north of Hamburg: roaring deer in the Duvenstedter Brook. Foxes also cross your paths here and disappear into one of Hamburg's oldest forests in the immediately adjacent Wohldorfer Wald nature reserve.

BrookHus nature reserves Duvenstedter Brook and Wohldorfer Forest

The BrookHus provides information about the nature reserves Duvenstedter Brook and Wohldorfer Wald, about the different habitats and the animals and plants found there. Therefore it is the ideal starting point for visitors. In addition to a small NABU store with a selection of specialized books, brochures, postcards and nesting boxes, you can explore changing exhibitions and listen to exciting lectures at BrookHus.

Diekbek & Rodenbek Spring Valley nature reserves

Separated only by a road, march on to the Diekbek nature reserve with its floodplain forests and meadows. Otters and kingfishers retreat to this refuge. To the north, Wohldorfer Wald is bordered by the hills and valleys of the Rodenbek Quellental nature reserve. Many paths, including the Alsterwanderweg, lead through the valley. The nature reserve got its name from its Rodenbek spring. But the Bredenbek and Mühlenbek also flow into the Alster here. After a wonderful walk in the fresh air, the Gasthof Quellental at the Rodenbek pond invites you to refresh yourself.

Hamburg North is a wonderful place to live. The city centre can be reached in no time, and there is plenty of nature nearby. Everything goes at a slightly slower pace here. But there are still many things to see and do.
