    For almost 100 years, the slow sand filtration plant on Kaltehofe supplied the Hanseatic city with clean drinking water. Only a few minutes drive from downtown Hamburg, the water art Elbe Island Kaltehofe today combines an industrial monument, museum and nature park. The bike path along the dike is great!

    So first it is called correctly Kaltehofe, the Museum Wasserkunst-Hamburg. The cycle path is used mainly by weekend cyclists from Hamburg via Entenwerder to Tatenberger lock and from there to the Vier- and Marschlande. So you have to expect a lot of busy business. Very relaxed during the week. The museum is currently closed due to renovation work, the outdoor facilities are accessible.

    When cholera cost many lives in Hamburg in 1892, none of the city fathers finally doubted the need for a regulated drinking water supply in the city. So soon the water filtration plant on Kaltehofe went into operation. Of the former slow sand filters, 20 are still visible today and characterize the landscape. Also characteristic are the slide houses, designed by the Speicherstadt architect Franz Andreas Meyer. Here the workers controlled the water level of the filter basins. The complex also includes the historic villa in which the branch office of the Hygienic Institute was located.

    A historic place of Hamburg, which was redesigned on a large scale some time ago and now gives the visitor an insight into the Hamburg drinking water production and processing.

    The Elbe water filtration plant of the Hamburg waterworks, built in 1893, is located on the Elbe island Kaltehofe. In 1990 it was taken out of service.

    The landscape with the small towers is very nice to look at. One can get the impression that this is a sunken city.
