Hamburg-Harburg

Neighbourhood profile: Hamburg-Harburg

A vibrant district

The district of Harburg in Hamburg is separated from the rest of the Hanseatic city by the Elbe and is located south of the body of water. It was named after the formerly independent town of the same name. Harburg used to have the largest area of all the city districts, but this has changed since the district of Wilhemsburg was assigned to the district of Hamburg-Mitte in 2008. The northern and eastern borders of Harburg adjoin Hamburg-Mitte, in the south the district borders the district of Harburg and in the west the district of Stade, both of which are in Lower Saxony. Harburg has a colourful mix of cityscapes and offers everything from big-city flair to village-like settlements, wide expanses of heathland, container terminals at the harbour and orchards located in the Alte Land. If you want to live in Hamburg-Harburg, you therefore have an enormous choice of locations and properties to cover all your needs.

Highlights in Hamburg-Harburg

Old Harburg Elbe Bridge

The 474 m long steel arch bridge was the first road bridge over the Süderelbe and connects the Hamburg districts of Harburg and Wilhelmsburg.

Harburg Outer Mill Pond

The Außenmühlenteich (Outer Mill Pond) is considered a local recreation centre for the people of Harburg.

Harburg's town hall

Hamburg-Harburg's magnificent town hall, decorated with foliage and tendrils of sandstone, was rebuilt in neo-Renaissance style after its destruction in 1944.

Harburg inland port

A new lively district is being created in Harburg's inland harbour: the exciting "Channel Hamburg" urban development project.

Fischbeker Heide

The 773-hectare nature reserve in Harburg invites you to go hiking and mountain biking in the countryside.

Lifestyle

Hamburg's formal rival

The district of Harburg in Hamburg used to form an independent city, located at the gates of the metropolis on the Elbe. Even today there are still independent former city areas that do not belong to the Hanseatic city and extend as a district in Lower Saxony as far as the Lüneburg Heath. The Hamburg district comprises a total of 17 districts, including Heimfeld, Altenwerder, Rönneburg, Langenbek or Neuenfelde. Depending on where you are, the architectural and scenic picture varies. You will find visual highlights particularly worth seeing in the Alte Land, which includes the districts of Cranz, Francop and Neuenfelde. Fruit growing dominates here, which ensures that the landscape is dotted with extensive plantations of cherry, pear and apple trees. The districts are extremely picturesque at the time of fruit blossom, when the entire area is bathed in a sea of white and pink and, together with the thatched-roof houses, creates a perfect landscape idyll.

Urban atmosphere and colourful life

Those who prefer a more exciting atmosphere and are looking for the buzz of the big city are in the right place in Harburg, the district that gives it its name. The former working-class district has undergone a major transformation in recent years and is now considered a popular meeting place for young and old alike. With its own harbour, a rich cultural offering and the Wilhelminian-style streets in Harburg's old town, the district offers excellent residential quality and a picturesque cityscape. As the location of the renowned Technical University TUHH, the district attracts young people in particular. When exploring Harburg, architecture fans in particular get their money's worth, as historic buildings with imposing facades are scattered throughout the area. The inland harbour in Harburg is also ideal for exploring a little maritime flair. Once a year, a large inland harbour festival is held here, which delights residents and tourists alike.

Attractions

A shipping hub and more: the inland port

Anyone coming to Harburg cannot avoid a visit to the Harburg inland harbour in the district of the same name. The harbour basin, several canals and the historic crane are real highlights. In addition, the old Harburg Elbe bridge from 1899 impresses with its nostalgic flair. Those who like to cycle have the opportunity to explore the district from Veddel along the old Reichsstraße and then pass the Süderelbe over the imposing bridge. Splendid buildings in the Harburg district include the town hall with its sandstone tendrils and foliage, which embellishes the town in Renaissance style. Harburg's Schloßstraße with its listed houses is also worth a visit. These include, for example, the Bornemannsche Haus, a former textile dye works, and the historic Goldener Engel inn, which is still one of the most popular restaurants in Hamburg-Harburg and spoils guests with culinary creations.

Harburg Castle and natural areas

The oldest building in the Hamburg district is Harburg Castle. Parts of the outer walls and the cellar vaults were built in the 14th century. The building is located on the castle island in Harburg's inland harbour. Over the centuries it has been destroyed and rebuilt several times, which is why you don't necessarily see its age from the outside. At present, the building can only be viewed from the outside anyway, as it is being renovated. After the work is completed, a permanent exhibition will be set up here to provide information about the history of the castle. If you would like to discover the other districts of Hamburg-Harburg, we recommend a trip to the Alte Land region and the Neugraben-Fischbek district, which borders directly on Lower Saxony. In late summer, entire landscapes of heather bloom here in a magnificent purple. In Altenwerder, in the midst of container terminals with their many seaborne goods, is St. Gertrud's Church, a reminder of the former village of Altenwerder.

Business and economy

Important transhipment centre in northern Germany

The container terminal in the Altenwerder district is one of the world's most modern transhipment centres for seaborne goods. The district is also home to a large aluminium factory, which is an important local employer and economic factor. Other companies with branches in the district include Beiersdorf AG with its tesa plant in Hamburg, Daimler AG and Heidelberger Druckmaschinen. Significant for the retail trade is the Phoenix-Center, a large shopping centre with an area of 26,500 m², where about 110 shops are located. The Süderelbe Growth Initiative was set up at Harburg's inland port with the aim of promoting the economic development of the Hamburg metropolitan region in the south.

Science and research in Harburg

The Hamburg district of Harburg is home to the Hamburg University of Technology and houses, among others, the Northern Institute of Technology Management (NIT) and the Fraunhofer Center for Maritime Logistics and Services. Here, scientists research innovative solutions and develop processes and systems that optimise the maritime supply chain. Projects are implemented on behalf of private and public clients in the areas of logistics, shipping and ports. Channel Harburg, located at the inland port, functions as an important technology and science location, but also as a home for various service providers. However, people come to the imposing Channeltower, which is a modern landmark of the city, not only to work but also to enjoy themselves, as several renowned restaurants and eateries are located there. The more rural regions are also popular as holiday destinations, so tourism plays an important role here. Holiday homes and hotels in Hamburg-Harburg accommodate visitors who want to experience the unique flair of the region.

About the real estate market

Urban development in the Harburg district

The urban district that gives it its name is experiencing growing demand. Not only are there elegant Art Nouveau houses and imposing Wilhelminian style buildings here, but a new district with attractive new buildings is currently being built in the inland harbour. After HafenCity, Harburg is currently considered the largest urban development area in the Hanseatic city, where modern quarters are to be built in the coming years. The property prices for the exclusive flats there tend to be in the higher range. However, there are also opportunities beyond the trendy harbour district to buy housing at affordable prices in Harburg.

Village charm and attractive residential areas

If you are looking for rather quieter residential areas, there is plenty to discover in the district of Harburg. The district of Eißendorf has vast wooded areas and is home to numerous detached houses and apartment buildings. Cranz is also dominated by magnificent landscapes, traditional pubs and farm shops that attract not only residents but also tourists. Gut Moor is quite sparsely populated, situated on the edge of the glacial valley of the Elbe. You will find a high degree of cultural diversity in Heimfeld, which has both old villa districts and modern residential areas, industrial areas and a lot of nature. A green suburb in the southwest is Marmsdorf, which still has a genuine village atmosphere in parts. Neugraben-Fischbek is one of the largest and greenest districts in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, while Wilstorf has many cooperative buildings and allotment gardens.
