Hamburg-Eimsbüttel

Neighbourhood Profile Hamburg-Eimsbüttel

Creativity lives here

The district of Eimsbüttel in Hamburg, which is home to a quarter of a million inhabitants, is densely built-up. This covers an area of almost 50 km². Despite this dense population, the quality of life in Eimsbüttel is high because urban planning here has been so skilfully implemented that green oases and natural areas criss-cross the district in many areas, thus breaking up the cityscape. Eimsbüttel is regarded as an important location for the German creative and media industries. It is also home to Hamburg's Jewish quarter at Grindel in the Rotherbaum district, which functions as the centre of Jewish life in the Free Hanseatic City. Eimsbüttel borders the Alster to the east and the state of Schleswig-Holstein to the northwest. Well-known Eimsbüttel residents include the journalist Ulrich Wickert and the TV chef Tim Mälzer. The Hagenbeck Zoo, known beyond the borders of the state, is also a popular tourist attraction in the district.

Lifestyle

From trendy quarters to idyllic green spaces

Eimsbüttel has a high degree of diversity. The district stretches from the western Außenalster to the border of the neighbouring federal state and has nine districts. These include Eimsbüttel, which gives the district its name, as well as Harvestehude, Hoheluft-West, Schnelsen, Niendorf, Eidelstedt, Stellingen and Rotherbaum. The most densely populated areas are mainly the south-eastern areas of Eimsbüttel and Hoheluft-West, while in Stellingen and Lokstedt, on the one hand, urban metropolitan flair, but on the other hand, quiet and a family-friendly atmosphere prevail in the outlying areas. Harvestehude and Rotherbaum and their magnificent villa districts are more affluent. The unofficial main street of the district is Osterstraße in Hamburg, which is located in the middle of the Eimsbüttel district and attracts a young crowd with its shopping, restaurants, bars and cafés. There is a lively and lovingly cultivated district culture here, which is brought to life by regular weekly markets and the popular annual Osterstraße festival. The atmosphere in Niendorf is rather middle-class and quiet, while Schnelsen is considered family-friendly and close to nature.

Student life in the university quarter

The Rotherbaum district of Eimsbüttel is home to the University of Hamburg, Germany's fifth-largest university. Directly adjacent to it is the Grindelviertel, which is home to numerous restaurants, cafés and Germany's oldest art-house cinema. Life here is dominated by the many students who live near the university and have their centre of life there. Life on the other side of Rothenbaumchaussee is more sophisticated and exclusive, with its many magnificent villas. Lokstedt has a suburban character, and those who move on to Eidelstedt, Niendorf and Schnelsen will find mainly detached houses, some with their own gardens. In addition, these areas of the city have larger commercial areas. The Jewish quarter at Grindel is also a central location for Jewish life in Hamburg. There is a synagogue in Eimsbüttel, for example, and the Jewish education centre in Rotherbaum. In addition to the university, the district is home to the Hamburg University of Music and Theatre, another important academic institution.

Attractions

Colourful animals at Hagenbeck and other sights

If you are out and about in the Stellingen district of Eimsbüttel and often hear lions roaring or exotic bird calls, don't be surprised - the unusual soundscape is due to the Hagenbeck Zoo. The zoo is one of the most famous sights in the district and the entire Hanseatic city. Every year, millions of visitors from all over the world come here to marvel at wild and exotic animal worlds. In addition, both Rotherbaum and Lokstedt are home to NDR television studios. Architecture lovers and fans of historic buildings will also find plenty to discover in Eimsbüttel, for example the famous water towers in Stellingen and Lokstedt, the Eimsbüttel Bridge or magnificent church buildings. The district also has numerous beautiful parks and green spaces, including the green belt around the Außenalster lake, the Innocentiapark in Harvestehude and the popular Alsterpark or Moorweide in Rotherbaum. The variety of parks in Eimsbüttel ensures that almost everywhere you go you have the opportunity to come to rest and enjoy nature, for example by taking a walk or lingering on a park bench. Osterstraße in Hamburg is also one of the popular places to go for tourists and locals.

Cultural places of interest

For those interested in culture, the Hamburg district of Eimsbüttel also has an extensive variety of exciting offers and places to go. For example, the Museum für Völkerkunde (Museum of Ethnology) has a unique collection of objects, with exhibits arranged by continent. It not only serves the cultural education of visitors, but also aims to demonstrate the cosmopolitanism of Hamburg, a city that has always been internationally active. In the Zoological and Botanical Museum you will be greeted by the famous NDR walrus Antje right at the entrance, and the Mineralogical Museum with its wide selection of precious stones, ores, crystals and meteorites is almost like an art gallery. Theatre lovers get the chance to watch plays at the Hamburger Kammerspiele, and friends of the cinematic arts should definitely plan a trip to the Abaton art house cinema. In addition, there are numerous cultural institutions in the district that give those interested an understanding of Jewish life in Hamburg. The branch of the library in Hamburg-Eimsbüttel, which has a stock of more than 1.7 million media, is the largest municipal library system in Germany and is not only worth a visit for reading enthusiasts.

Business and economy

Media and creative landscape in Eimsbüttel

A special feature of Eimsbüttel is the very distinctive media landscape, which is based, among other things, in the media centre on Rothenbaumchaussee. Television journalist Johannes B. Kerner runs his own production company here, and it is also home to the NDR headquarters, which with a total of 3,500 employees at four locations is one of the most important and largest employers in the whole of northern Germany. The NDR also has studios in the Lokstedt district, where the ARD television news department is located and broadcasts its daily news programmes Tagesthemen, Tagesschau and Nachtmagazin from here. The headquarters of the German Press Agency are located in the Harvestehude district. Various publishing houses, such as the Ganske publishing group and the Hans Sikorski International Music Publishers, have also set up their offices in Eimsbüttel. Furthermore, the Foreigners' Registration Office in Eimsbüttel is an important part of the federal administrative apparatus.

Important local employers

With regard to the economic structure in Eimsbüttel, in addition to the media landscape, the headquarters of the well-known company Beiersdorf AG in Unnastrasse in the Hoheluft-West district is worth mentioning. Other companies that have settled here are the semiconductor plant NXP Semiconductors, which developed the memory chips for the new identity cards that came into being in 2010. In addition, several clinics of the University Hospital Hamburg are located in Eimsbüttel, for example the Albertinen Hospital in Schnelsen, the Jerusalem Hospital at Moorkamp and the Diakonie Hospital Hamburg in the Eimsbüttel district. The medical equipment manufacturer Weinmann has a branch in Stellingen and produces emergency equipment for ambulances there, among other things, about half of which is exported abroad. Directly on the A7 and at the Stellingen exit, there is a branch of the DIY giant Bauhaus, the largest DIY store in Europe, and one of the three IKEA stores represented in Hamburg.

About the real estate market

From chic and luxurious to alternative and trendy

Depending on where you are looking in the district of Eimsbüttel, different conditions prevail in terms of property type and residential location. The trendy district around the Grindel is mainly characterised by the students living here, where small to medium-sized flats in particular are in high demand. The selection of properties suitable primarily for investment purposes is large in the Grindel high-rises, among others. In Lokstedt, too, the supply of housing suitable for long-term rental is extensive. On the other hand, those looking for properties in quiet but very good locations should focus on the exclusive neighbourhoods with the magnificent villas and luxury properties in the districts of Rotherbaum or Harvestehude. In these areas, condominium properties are usually the most available. Old flats in Hamburg Eimsbüttel also dominate the picture in the district that gives it its name. Eidelstedt, Schnelsen and Niendorf are more familiar and cosy. In Schnelsen, in particular, you can live close to nature and in peace thanks to the proximity to the comparatively rural Schleswig-Holstein.

Property prices in Hamburg-Eimsbüttel

The prices for real estate property or rental properties in the district of Eimsbüttel vary greatly, because here you can find both luxurious villas in top locations and low-priced properties in the various high-rise buildings in the district. Anyone purchasing a property for investment purposes and wishing to rent it out would be well advised to consult the rent index in Hamburg-Eimsbüttel to determine an adequate rent that suits the property and location. This applies in particular to the sought-after Univiertel. Properties in the lower price segment are available in the Grindel high-rises. Single-family homes with their own garden can be purchased in the outskirts of Eimsbüttel, sometimes at quite moderate prices. In the trendy neighbourhood, with its excellent infrastructure and many places to go out, on the other hand, prices show an upward trend. This is due not only to the attractive location but also to the old buildings with generously cut multi-room flats that are popular with apartment hunters and are suitable as condominiums.
