The 63 m high Schüberg is an impressive elevation of the Bocksberg-Schüberg ridge. This regionally valuable geological object is an upturn moraine of the Vistula glaciation, the last icing in our area that ended about 15,000 years ago.
This landmark of the municipality Ammersbek is particularly protected as a natural monument.
On the mountain there is a monument to the landowner Hedwig von Schmettau.
The rocks lying on the mountain come from the (new) Elbtunnel and are intended to illustrate the characteristic for a terminal moraine former block scattering of boulders.
The Schüberg seems to have been a popular destination early on. At the beginning of the 19th century, for example, there was a cottage with a lookout tower. This tower or another existed until the beginning of the 20th century.
As a destination in the countryside served the Schüberg the nearby city until the 60th years of the 20th century.
But also Hoisbüttler associations (Liedertafel, Kriegerverein) celebrated their festivals here.
