District Profile Gross Borstel

Groß Borstel some kind of stranger so close to the city. It has retained its monastery heritage as a village with pretty housing areas. It has vast stretches of woodlands, such as the Borsteler Jäger and the Eppendorfer Moor and therefore it offers plenty of space to relax in nature. The buildings are very mixed – there are modern design houses, country-style houses as well as large apartment blocks. The airport and city center are both easy to reach by public transport. Residents go shopping at Borsteler Chaussee where they find everything from supermarkets, to pharmacies, doctors, and boutiques. There are also some office buildings.

Eppendorf is in close proximity, so if the local restaurant or shopping scene does not suffice that's where residents go. Residents of Gross Borstel, mostly older, well-established people and younger families form a village-like community and appreciate the tranquil atmosphere. The living areas are to be carefully selected because planes come down over the district.
