If you are looking for a property in Hamburg in a rural idyll, you will certainly find what you are looking for in the Walddörfer Bergstedt, Duvenstedt, Lemsahl-Mellingstedt, Volksdorf and Wohldorf-Ohlstedt. Whether dense forests, extensive horse pastures or historic farms: The districts in the northeast of Hamburg offer everything the heart of nature lovers and families with children desires.
On the edge of Hamburg and directly on the border with Schleswig-Holstein lie the Walddörfer, which have been part of the Hanseatic city since the late Middle Ages. In no other part of the city you will meet so many forests and nature reserves. How about an excursion to the 780-hectare Duvenstedter Brook, a walk in the Wohldorfer Wald forest or a discovery tour through the Rodenbeker Quellental valley – past rippling ponds, colorful flowers and species-rich wildlife? Here you can not only marvel at countless species of birds and amphibians, but with a little luck also meet deer, hedgehogs and wild boars.
The Walddörfer are known for the numerous properties with thatched roofs, which exude a very special charm. Besides the typical Frisian houses, you can also fulfill your dream of a half-timbered house and relax from the hectic everyday life next to meadows, orchards, grazing horses and cows. No wonder that the places around Lemsahl-Mellingstedt are especially popular with families with children, who grow up far away from the noise of the big city.
The many leisure, cultural and educational facilities also speak for a property in a district of the Walddörfer. Due to the golf and tennis clubs, riding stables, weekly markets and numerous schools, you can enjoy a unique quality of life in the north of Hamburg.
