District Profile Eimsbüttel

Location of the district Hamburg Eimsbüttel

Hamburg Eimsbüttel is a residential area in the heart of Hamburg, where families, singles and couples feel home. It is one of the most densely populated areas of Hamburg: 54.000 people live here. There are lots of small green squares, parks and playgrounds and it is presumed one of the most family-friendly districts. However, families tend to move out to the neiighbor districts like Lokstedt, when their children grow a little older.

For the smallest residents, though, there are many, many activities organized by private organizations or individual mommies. It has been home of the first “baby-lounge” where mommies could enjoy a latte whilst the toddlers were enjoying themselves in a playroom. Unfortunately, this café closed, but there are popping up new ones once in a while, i.e. tummelum.

Young parents and their children are definitely welcome in this quarter and hearing the bumping sound of children feet in the flat above is just part of life here.

Many houses in Hamburg Eimsbüttel were built in the era of German emperor Wilhelm and if you are a fan of high ceilings and stucco, you will love it here. The look and feel is similar to Eppendorf, but a little more "alternative" - people are assumed to be more environmentally sensitive, more "left".

Albeit being known as family-friendly district, it is extremely difficult to get a flat of 3 or 4 rooms in Eimsbüttel: it is not unusual that 100 people queue in line to apply for the apartment. Parking space is difficult to get. The lively center is around the western part of the Bundesstrasse. Many shops with a creative and individual product range and cozy small restaurants can be found here and create a lovely atmosphere. There are two famous sports clubs, the Kaifu-Lodge and a Meridian Spa.

The southern part of the district (which turns over into the “Sternschanze”) is also one of the most political quarters. Often, demonstrations are held and "political" statements on walls are all-visible. The people living here are very tolerable with regard to different life styles, be it by political background or cultural background.
