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

You can also see foxes or cranes here. In this fascinating moorland with its rich flora and fauna, you’ll quickly have all the photos you need for your next self-made calendar. Information, exhibitions and excursions at the Duvenstedter BrookHus.
The BrookHus has information about the Duvenstedter Brook and Wohldorfer Wald nature protection areas, the different habitats and the plants and animals that live there. It is thus the ideal starting point for visitors. In addition to a small NABU shop with a selection of books, brochures and postcards all the way to nesting boxes, the BrookHus has changing exhibitions and lectures.

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.

The Hirschpark in Hamburg is a green oasis, and "deer park" is exactly what it is: Reindeer and fallow deer live in the game reserve.

Unique park above the Elbe Altona Balkon

The Altona Balkon – “Altona Balcony” – is around 27 m higher than the Elbe and offers a fantastic view of the Hamburg harbour, the legendary fish market and all the colourful goings-on along the shore.

Finkenwerder is the place that is representing Hamburg’s idyllic countryside in all its glory. At the former Elbe Island you’ll find peaceful nature and a very different and unexpected side of the city.
