Hamburg/North

Northern Hamburg includes the lake of Aussenalster, the city's airport and a lot of greenery in-between.

Get in

If you are arriving in Hamburg by plane, you'll most likely land at Fuhlsbüttel Airport, some 8km north of downtown Hamburg. The airport is connected to Hamburg's urban rail network by the S1 line. Several S- and U-bahn lines go up to northern Hamburg, although the southern part of the area this guide comprises are accessible by foot from central Hamburg and St. Georg. The AKN railway connects the northwestern parts of the city directly to Altona.

Eppendorf

Eppendorf is the oldest "Dorf" (town) of Hamburg. In Eppendorf you will find a lot of well cared for 19th century houses making the quarter an eye-catcher. As a good alternative to the city center you will find in Eppendorf a nice collection of shops - a lot of them very individual. Focus is on clothes and shoes. Don't miss the "Isemarkt" - Europe's longest open market, every Tuesday and Friday 8am-2pm under the U3 subway driveway between Hoheluftbrücke and Eppendorfer Baum between the two lanes of the Isestraße.

Do

The obvious thing to do is to take a ride around the Alster on one of the leisure boats and enjoy the greenery and elegant buildings around it.

Buy

Northern Hamburg does not provide the shopping opportunities that the city centre or St. Pauli do. Corner shops provide all the necessities with a few regular specialty shops in between, and there are some suburban shopping centres, designed for car-driving customers, such as the Nedderfeld Center.
