The listed building, which is over 250 years old, offers a unique atmosphere. Originally used as a horse stable, the building now provides the setting for about 60 cultural events a year. Besides, it is a sought-after venue for romantic weddings and joyful celebrations.
The Alsterwanderweg (Alster Walking Path) runs adjacent to the Torhaus in Wellingsbüttel. It is one of Hamburg's most popular walking routes. Past allotment gardens and Wilhelminian villas, parks and meadows, the path leads from the city centre far into the north of the Hanseatic city.
