Eppendorfer Baum, Hamburg Eppendorf
Eppendorf is one of the most beautiful and oldest quarters in Hamburg (Hamburg vacation rentals | Hamburg travel guide) and dominated by wonderful art nouveau buildings. Those were built in the 19th century for wealthy Hamburg citizens who chose the former suburb as their country residence. By today most residences were transformed into multiple apartments and condos and also feature quaint backyards and small restaurants, bars or little shops that characterize the areas in Hamburg Eppendorf.
The busiest and most beautiful areas in Eppendorf are Klosterstern, Eppendorfer Baum and Eppendorfer Landstraße with many fashion boutiques, interior and antiques shops, delicatessen stores, restaurants, and of course many picturesque art nouveau buildings. These beautiful buildings also extend into the side alleys and are lined-up along Isekanal, a side arm of Alster River that is popular with canoeists during summer and ice skaters during winter.
Instead of walking you also can discover Hamburg Eppendorf from a canoe. There are two rental shops located along Isekai that offer hourly and daily canoe rentals. From their jetties you can follow Isekanal to the Southwest area of Eppendorf, or Leinpfad canal to the North towards the adjoining neighborhood of Winterhude (Winterhude vacation rentals | Winterhude travel guide) or to the South towards picturesque lake Alster.
If you love farmers’ markets a must-do is the bi-weekly “Isemarkt” at Isestraße in between metro stations Eppendorfer Baum and Hoheluftbrücke. Every Tuesday and Friday around 200 merchants offer a variety of goods like produce as well as arts and crafts below the elevated railway tracks from 8:30 am – 2 pm.
A major annual event in Eppendorf is the Eppendorfer Landstraßenfest. The street festival along Eppendorfer Landstraße takes place in May or June and features a flea market, snack shacks, music, raffles, giveaways, and demonstrations by local businesses and vendors. In addition there is another street festival at the quarters’ northern skirts, which takes place in August. Along beautiful Erikastraße vendors are selling their products and musicians are playing concerts in the adjoining restaurants.
Since parking is a nightmare in picturesque Eppendorf it is recommended to use the metro to explore the area. The best metro stations to walk the quarter are: Eppendorfer Baum (metro U3) and Klosterstern (metro U1) or Kellinghusenstraße (metro U1 and U3).
