Lohsepark

 

The biggest green space in the HafenCity gets busier, greener and worthier every day. The Lohsepark is an idyllic recreational area with enough opportunities for fun and excitement. 

When the sun is shining in Hamburg, the green colors of the secret hotspot at HafenCity are even richer than usual. The lush green grass is so inviting, that many people take a seat to enjoy a place where they can let their mind wander, have a picnic or get active while the busy life of the neighborhood goes by. 

Since July 2016 the Lohsepark is finally open for all nature lovers and peace seekers. But also for families this park offers great opportunities. Here, they not only find a playground that fascinates climbing fans of all ages but also the big swings are a highlight. After a short break underneath the numerous fruit trees, that were planted here a while ago, you’ll find a place for skating and basketball close to the Oberhagenquartier.

With a length of 600 meters and a width of 80 it’s something for every taste. Even discoverers find something new to explore: hidden in the Lohsepark there is a constructed cave where kids can pretend to be real geologists. Different layers of earth like tamped concrete, clay, grit and turf are laid bare and impress everyone, even adults, when entering the cave. 

(Moreover the Lohsepark is a place of memory. Between Ericusgraben and Baakenhafen once the Hannoversche Bahnhof was located. From 1940 until 1945 at least 7692 Jews, Sinti and Roma were deported from this station during the holocaust. A place with a mournful history has become the green lung of the HafenCity.)
