Hamburg-Nord

Neighbourhood profile: North Hamburg

Diversity and individuality

The district of Hamburg-Nord stretches to the left and right of the Alster, has an area of 58 km² and is rather sparsely populated in some parts compared to the rest of the Elbe metropolis. Larger areas here are not inhabited at all and are intended for infrastructure and local recreation. For example, Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel Airport is located in the north of the Hanseatic city, and the Hamburg City Park and the Eppendorfer Moor nature reserve as well as several allotment gardens can also be found here. Anyone who likes to live in the countryside and enjoy peace and quiet is in the right place here. The district's neighbourhoods are varied and present themselves as authentic, middle-class and in part rather suburban. But even those who want to experience big-city flair can find the right residential area here, if they know where to look. The district is also known for its exclusive villas, which date back to the turn of the century and characterise the townscape in districts such as Eppendorf or Winterhude.

Life in Hamburg-Nord

Real Hamburg flair with lots of green

The northern district of Hamburg comprises a total of 13 neighbourhoods, which in turn are subdivided into three regional areas. The regional area Eppendorf-Winterhude includes Winterhude, Hoheluft-Ost and Eppendorf. The regional area Fuhlsbüttel-Langenhorn-Alsterdorf includes Fuhlsbüttel, Groß Borstel, Ohlsdorf, Langenhorn and Alsterdorf. The third regional area is Barmbek-Uhlenhorst-Dulsberg, which includes Uhlenhorst, Hohenfelde, Barmbek-Nord and -Süd and Dulsberg. Overall, the north of Hamburg is more middle-class. Families with children, but also senior citizens, like to settle here to enjoy the peace and quiet and relax in the parks and baths. The northern areas on the outskirts of the city, such as Alsterdorf, Fuhlsbüttel or Langenhorn, are particularly popular. Here many use the existing allotment gardens to be in the green in their leisure time. The more densely populated core areas include Winterhude, Hoheluft-Ost and Eppendorf, while in Barmbek-Nord and -Süd, Uhlenhorst or the small district of Hohenfelde, which are close to the Alster, you live relatively close to the city centre.

Beyond the hustle and bustle

Due to its location, the North district functions as an important transport hub for the city, which is why Hamburg Airport was built here. In the districts of Hamburg-Nord, individuality is writ large. They all have things in common, but each has its own unique charm. You will find magnificent villa districts in Eppendorf, office buildings and business flair in the City-Nord in Winterhude or a rural suburban atmosphere in Groß Borstel. Since the latter is nevertheless located in the middle of the city despite its village ambience, its popularity has increased in recent years. Barmbek-Nord, on the other hand, has a high development potential with many new building projects, and in Hamburg's smallest district, Dulsberg, listed red brick houses dominate and give the area a unique cityscape.

Attractions in Hamburg-Nord

Around the Alster

A sight in itself and a real Hamburg landmark is, of course, the Alster, which stretches through the middle of the North district in Hamburg. The river and its canals have played a major role in shaping the district, and the riverside areas are a popular destination for recreation-seekers and tourists. In addition, various planetariums and museums are located here, for example the Hamburg Planetarium, which is one of a total of nine large planetariums nationwide. For culture lovers, the Ernst Deutsch Theatre, the Winterhuder Fährhaus comedy or the Alma Hoppes comedy theatre are popular attractions. In addition, the many parks in the district invite you to stroll, relax and enjoy. The City-Nord-Park acts as a green axis for the City Nord office block district and connects it with the Hamburg Stadtpark. Employees who work there like to use it in good weather to soak up a bit of nature and sunshine during their lunch break.

Hamburg's greenest district

If you are looking for a natural idyll, you will definitely find it in Hamburg-Nord. The green oases of the district create a high quality of life for residents there, and many of the city's most popular parks and water features can be found here. In addition to the world's largest park cemetery, the Ohlsdorfer Friedhof, there are several nature reserves in the district, for example the Eppendorfer Moor, which is considered the largest European inner-city moor, and the Raakmoor or Rothsteinsmoor nature reserves. Hamburg's magnificent city park with its water tower is not only attractive for walkers, as open-air concerts are regularly held there in summer. When the weather is nice, many locals also make a pilgrimage to the Stadtparksee with its own outdoor swimming pool to cool off. In addition, there are numerous restaurants in Hamburg-Nord that offer both home-style and international cuisine.

Business and economy

City-Nord - Hamburg's business hotspot

The hub of economic activity in the northern district is the office city of Hamburg, located in the Winterhude district. Hamburg's City-Nord is home to numerous renowned companies such as Vattenfall, ERGO, Allianz or EDEKA and many others that have set up shop in impressive office buildings. They represent some of the city's most important employers, and numerous Hamburg residents commute here daily to their places of work. Accordingly, the district's connections to the other districts are very well developed. For this reason, City-Nord is considered an important business location in the city. Connected to the office city are childcare facilities such as daycare centres and kindergartens, where the office workers' children are looked after during the day. Quite a few companies have contributed to the costs of setting up the childcare facilities or have set up their own daycare centres and kindergartens to ensure a work-life balance for their employees.

Major business location

The basic idea of City-Nord in Hamburg was developed as early as the mid-1950s in response to the growing demand for office space. The construction project was then completed in 1964, and the office city henceforth formed an important location for various large corporations. Companies in City-Nord in Hamburg still have their head offices there today, some of them for many decades, for example the ERGO Group, formerly Hamburg-Mannheimer. It is thanks to this that the local employment rate is very good. Many people who live in the district work in one of the office buildings and thus combine the high quality of life in a green district with the uncomplicated accessibility of the workplace. In recent years, City-Nord has undergone some changes that have improved the architectural image of the office buildings.

Real estate market

High-quality real estate

Living in Hamburg-Nord is characterised by an extraordinary diversity. Depending on where you go, you will find very different architectural styles here. Magnificent villa complexes can be admired in Hoheluft-Ost or Eppendorf, for example. In these rather exclusive districts, the average property prices for buyers are correspondingly high. In Fuhlsbüttel, to the north, Hamburg Airport dominates the picture. This ensures excellent accessibility, but clouds the cityscape somewhat. However, it also ensures that prices here are comparatively low, which also attracts students to the area, among others. Here you will find rows of houses with red brick buildings, some of which still date from the 1920s to 1930s and house smaller two- to three-room flats. Flats for singles, for example small flats, are also available here, which ensures that the district is particularly popular with young people. Single-family homes as well as larger and higher-quality condominiums dominate Groß-Borstel.

Future-oriented urban development

The north of Hamburg is a district full of variety. In addition to streets with elegant old buildings and Wilhelminian villas, there are also districts characterised by modern architecture and new buildings. These include Barmbek-Nord, which is considered a promising development area of the city. Those who dream of typical Hamburg brick buildings with a historical feel or the popular half-timbered houses are also in the right place in the north and should concentrate on the district of Alsterdorf. An area of contrasts is Hohenfelde, where both magnificent villas and social housing can be found. In general, housing in almost all price categories can be found in the North district of Hamburg, so that in principle property seekers with different budgets can find what they are looking for. The entire district scores with a very well-developed infrastructure, a varied cityscape and numerous shopping and leisure opportunities. We will be happy to support you in your search for the right property in the north of Hamburg and advise you on your options.
