Families, daydreamsers, joggers and cyclists come to the Isebek canal between Eimsbüttel and Schanzenviertel in search of relaxation.

The greenway that runs along the Isebek canal between Weidensteig and Hoheluftbrücke is a beloved recreation area for people in Eimsbüttel and the neighbouring Schanzenviertel district. The wide sandy paths along the Kaiser Friedrich bank are ideal for joggers. There’s a playground, some lawns and numerous little bridges crossing the canal – there’s even one especially for the many cyclists in the district. The park is also the habitat of a great deal of bird species that feed on the local fish.

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.
