Neighbourhood profile: Hamburg-Harburg
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.
