In the north of Hamburg, the Niendorfer Gehege extends over almost 150 hectares. The local recreation area is home to a diverse fauna and flora.
The Niendorfer Gehege promises adventure for young and old. You can walk, jog and rave to your heart's content on more than 15 kilometres of hiking trails. Beech, spruce and oak trees up to 200 years old are enthroned along the fortified paths. Young visitors may explore the enclosure on the back of ponies or make the forest playgrounds unsafe. On a clearing in the middle of the forest, wild animals can be observed. The fallow deer enclosure is home to deer, hare, foxes and weasels. With a little luck the shy wild animals will present themselves to the visitors.
The Niendorfer Gehege can be reached by underground, bus or car. From the underground stations Niendorf Markt and Hagendeel the wooded park can be reached by foot in 20 to 30 minutes. Bus travellers leave bus line 181 at the Niendorfer Gehege stop.
