Heuckenlock Nature Preserve

© Frau Elbville

Located in the south of the Elbe island Wilhelmsburg, this area of almost 100 hectares is one of Europe’s last tidal floodplain forests.

 The forest is flooded with fresh water twice a day, which is why the most species-rich flora and fauna in Hamburg are found here. In Heuckenlock there is much to discover: in addition to countless plants and insects, it is a breeding ground or retreat for many different birds. With a bit of luck, you can observe storks searching for food or even spy eagles majestically soaring in the sky.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Wilhelmsburg & Veddel

The Elbe Island of Wilhelmsburg is embedded between the southern and northern Elbe. It impresses visitors with a mixture of industrial charm and bustling life with multicultural flair. With its historic buildings, cafés and shops, the Wilhelmsburg Reiherstieg area is especially popular. It is even called "Little Berlin" due to its transformation in recent years. And then there is the neighbouring island of Veddel, which also has much to offer.

Nature reserve "Die Reit"

Where Gose Elbe and Dove Elbe meet, lies the delightful landscape of the small nature reserve Die Reit. Past small lakes and ponds, you walk through primeval, swampy beech forest. From the Reit dike, your gaze sweeps over green meadows and waving reed beds.
