Located in the north of Hamburg Lokstedt belongs to the district Eimsbüttel. Since it is well connected with the U3 and the Metro bus line 5, you can quickly reach the city center if necessary. Even the airport and motorways are not far away. The landmark is the neo-gothic water tower.
The Lenzsiedlung, which comprise 15-floor apartment blocks on Julius-Vosseler Strasse, is the home of more than 3.000 people. But there are also nice one- and two-family houses in quiet back streets and young families benefit from the relatively low prices. It is a very green district with lots of parks and garden plots.
With its southern border melting into the hip district Eimsbüttel, this part is also very popular and it’s where you would find the Art Neauvau / Wilhelminian style buildings.
