Neighbourhood Profile Hamburg-Eimsbüttel
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.
