District Profile Langenhorn

In Langenhorn a rural atmosphere is still detectable. A few reed-covered historical houses can be spotted. Most of the residents live in terraced homes with gardens, but there are also some apartment blocks. The area is quiet and family-oriented. The Wulffsche Siedlung (settlement) was built in 1942 and, as such, was one of the very few new building projects constructed within the Second World War. It is named after a farmer’s family which lived in that area for a long time. The buildings are now brought to acceptable energy standards by carefully renewing the buildings' structure. The Scharzwaldsiedling (Black-Forest-Settlement) which was built in 1939-40 was dedicated for workers in the armament industry. One previous manufacturer is now the home of a very good fish restaurant called “Marlin”.

Langenhorn is also known for its clinic Heidberg, which is housed in red-brick historical buildings in a green park. Langenhorn has a rather big shopping mall which is located directly center right from the train station. A weekly open air market is held in the area’s center and residents from Fuhlsbüttel, Langenhorn, and Hummelsbüttel use this facility to buy some fresh regional food. It is well connected to the city center with three train stations.
