Kaltehofe, island in the River Elbe

Bird tour



The decommissioned waterworks on the island of Kaltehofe now plays host to a wealth of rare plants and animals - throngs of Hamburg residents can also be sighted on the marked pathways. The inviting footpath leads along the dike and, as of recently, joins a nature discovery trail. Another new feature: there's a viewpoint for watching birds, preferably through binoculars which can be hired easily in the museum shop close by.

On the way back, drop in at the adjoining café then return via the dike – the perfect Sunday excursion, and free of charge (without coffee). Opening hours vary by seasons, but it will always be open between 10 a.m. and 5.00 p.m.
