Bergedorf is one of the most populated district of Hamburg, first, it was a preferred area since the 18th century, and there are lots of reminiscences to that time, second, Neuallermöhe East and Nettelnburg, two huge social building settlements built in the 70ths of last century, house around 6.000 people.
Bergedorf had been a city of its own long time ago at this character carries on.
The city-center is fully developed with shopping, cinema, theatre, sports clubs, weekly market etc. The character is urban and lively with a vivid cultural scene. The villas’ area starts North of the train line and goes South until Wentorfer Straße. Around 30 streets with the most magnificent houses are prime residential area. The up-market area sets forth in Schleswig-Holsteins Aumühle, which has a little more rural character. Anything East of the Curlacker Neuer Deich is good residential area and worth considering when moving to Hamburg, especially with family. It is well connected to Hamburg city center by the A25 motorway and S-Bahn and also offers a lot of jobs in Bergedorf itself.
The multi-story settlements are the downside of the district, although they are better than their reputation. Bergedorf West can show off with three huge multi-story buildings called Affenfelsen, Langer Jammer and Spundwand – all not very advantageous names. The quarters are having social difficulties, but a lot of efforts are undertaken to minimize the negative impacts. Allermöhe East and Nettelnburg are the other two settlements and whilst Allermöhe East has a nice architectural design, Nettelnburg is one of the most problematic areas in Hamburg residents’ perception.
