From Maxstrasse, the Wandse was canalized between 1854 and 1900 and is therefore called the Eilbek Canal.
From 2009, ten berths for houseboats were set up on the north bank of the Eilbek Canal as part of the pilot project "Living on the water". Five berths are located in the section between Wagnerstrasse and Richardstrasse (Barmbek-Süd) and five more in the section between Finkenau and Lerchenfeld (Uhlenhorst).
The houseboats are moored to Dalben and are connected to the sewage system, power supply and garbage disposal on the bank. The houseboats are standardized in the base area and have a width of 6 meters, so as not to impede shipping, 10 meters long. So that they can still pass under the bridges, they have a maximum height of 3.25 meters above the water level. The upper floor may only occupy half of the basement in order to give pedestrians a view of the Eilbek Canal.
The living space is 130 to 160 square meters. Lease is paid for the berth. The boats are used as offices or as apartments.
The bicycle road in Uferstrasse and Lortzingstrasse has been running parallel to the Eilbek Canal since 2012 as part of Veloroute 6, which leads from the city via Dulsberg to Farmsen.

A little information about the floating homes:
October 1, 2018
For the urban pilot project "Living on the water", the north side of the Eilbek Canal in the district of Hamburg-Nord was chosen because the conditions were particularly favorable here. In addition to the quality of the location, the main factor was the location on a public road with all the necessary line media. In addition, there are shops and public transport in relative proximity. Last but not least, the required depth of water was largely available.
As part of a bidding process, in May 2007, a jury selected 10 out of the 84 anonymously submitted drafts for realization and 10 followers.
After the fixing piles had been set and the transfer stations for the various pipeline media had been set up, the floating houses could be realized from 2008 onwards. In the two Liegefeldern are currently (mid-2015) 9 so-called "recumbent" moored. The tenth is under construction and should take its place after the urgently needed renovation of the bank wall.
