Bergstedt remained its very nice and cozy village character. It consists of an Edeka supermarket, a bank, a florist and a “Kolonialwarenladen” (being a shop form existing in the years before Second World War and offering all kinds of products).
There are still some areas used for farming and a big riding stable offers its facilities. It is a little less expensive than Volksdorf and some newbuilding areas have been established in the recent years allowing for smaller parcels of land and thus easier to afford for young families. On top of the rents you need, however, to calculate the costs of a car as it is only connected by bus to the next train stations in Volksdorf or Poppenbüttel. The result is that 27% of the residents have children. Hence, the aging structure of the suburb is slightly younger than in Volksdorf. There are 9 kindergartens, 2 primary schools and 2 secondary schools. People living here earned some 10.000 EUR more than average. 11% of the residents have a migration background. Some 38 delicts per 1.000 residents have been committed, 1/3 of the average rate.

Bergstedt's church is one of the oldest and most beautifullest and is often booked for weddings. The Alster is running alongside the western border of the districts and there is a farm (“Stüffel”) employing slightly disabled people to grow its vegetables and take care for the horses. They also run a little shop with organic food and once a year they are organizing a wonderful family-event (the Stüffelfest). The big playground in the Saseler Park is also close by.
It is an entirely nice and quiet residential area.
