Wasserkunst Elbinsel Kaltehofe

The foundation Wasserkunst Elbinsel Kaltehofe in the Hamburg district of Veddel is an impressive industrial monument, a species-rich nature park and a water art museum.

Visitors to the Wasserkunst Elbinsel Kaltehofe can learn interesting facts about the former waterworks and then enjoy a relaxing day in the wildlife park.

The Stiftung Wasserkunst Elbinsel Kaltehofe is dedicated to nature and the environment. Its main objective is the preservation of the waterworks on the Elbe island of Kaltehofe, which has not been used since 1990. Today the complex includes a museum, a nature park and an industrial monument. While history enthusiasts will enjoy the museum and its exhibition about the former use and significance of the work, there is much to discover for children and nature lovers in the outdoor area, such as the nature trail in the wildlife park. The industrial monument, a former filtration plant that played a central role in the city during the cholera epidemic at the end of the 19th century, is also worth seeing.

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.
