Uhlenhorst is a suburb of Hamburg, Germany situated in the Hamburg-Nord district of the city. It is located near several bodies of water, including the Outer Alster Lake, and this geography has played a large hand in the development of the area. The area was once filled with swamps and meadows and was a landing point for barges on the Alster dating all the way back to the 13th century. In addition to its natural beauty, Uhlenhorst is well known for its many historic medieval buildings and for sporting activities, making it a popular location for both tourists and locals.
- Catch a play at the German Ernst Theatre in Uhlenhorst, where you can see some of Hamburg’s most exciting young acting talent take the stage for a dramatic or musical performance.
- Walk along the wide trail along the Outer Alster Lakeshore, stopping at the benches to enjoy views of the lake and the many sailboats that glide across the water.
- Explore the beautiful grounds of the St. Gertrude Church, a neo-Gothic structure built out of red brick, one of the best examples of this architectural style found in Hamburg.
Hamburg is one of the greenest and most eco-friendly cities in Germany, so you will often see citizens getting around by bicycle. There is a large network of bicycle trails that snake throughout the city and the Uhlenhorst district and this is one of the best ways to get around when the weather is nice. The tram is also a popular mode of transportation and there is a route that goes directly through Uhlenhorst, stopping near the main attractions. The district is also safe for pedestrians and walking around the lake is one of the favourite activities of locals.
