    Very nice path in the middle of nature, past the lake, fields and small towns. There are seats and small waste bins at certain intervals. Just perfect to take a break.

    The Hamburg Marschbahn was a standard gauge small train in the Hamburg Vier- und Marschlanden.

    The route was built as a job creation measure after the First World War on behalf of the Hamburg Senate. The first section, which opened on May 12, 1921, branched off the main line of the Bergedorf-Geesthacht Railway (BGE) in Düneberg, led down the Elbe and merged at the Teufelsort level with the line of the Vierlander Eisenbahn bis, which opened in 1912, from Hamburg-Bergedorf to the south to a terminus in Zollenspieker on the north bank of the Elbe.

    At the branching of the route sections, a route leading to the northwest was also built, which after two further stations initially ended in Fünfhausen. In the further extension to the west the line reached Ochsenwerder on April 1, 1923, Tatenberg in 1926 and Moorfleet in 1927. Here the route followed the course of the elongated street villages on a railway embankment, but kept a certain distance. The official opening of the entire route took place on October 1, 1928.

    Nice stretch of the march railway embankment, on which you can cycle very nicely through the surrounding natural landscape.

    The Marschbahn was a small train in the Hamburg Vier- und Marschlanden until 1952. You association Tiefstack with Bergedorf. Today there is a cycle path along the route that offers beautiful views of the rural landscape.
    On weekends, however, it can get stressful here, as some racing cyclists aggressively rush through. It can be particularly annoying for families.

    Very good alternative to the tour on the Elbe. Especially in summer there is plenty of shade and some benches to rest. Highly recommended bike path.

    Cycle path through the green directly in front of Hamburg. A green tunnel that is very beautiful in every season. A bit narrow and confusing for racing bikes and with a few tree roots under the asphalt, but otherwise wonderful to ride. I actually hear partridges here and sometimes storks, birds of prey or deer can be seen. It is particularly nice that it can be reached quickly from the city center and is even suitable as an after-work tour for city dwellers. The Marschbahndamm got its name from the fact that there used to be a train connection here that connected Hannoversche Bahnhof in Hamburg with Neuengamme. An oppressive story. Remains of the railway bridge at the Tatenberger lock can still be seen today and the "Bahnhofs-Gaststätte" in five thousand was actually a train station in the past.

    The "Marschbahndamm" in the Vierland and Marschlanden has different names along its entire length (23 km) from the Tatenberger Schleuse to Altengamme, but is only ever referred to as the "Marschbahndamm". The map opposite with a section of 1.7 km is irritating. The beautiful playground at Gleisdreieck is always worth a stop, where the Bergedorf railway embankment merges with the Marschbahndamm and continues to Kirchwerder and Zollenspieker Fährhaus, i.e. to the Elbe ferry. I cycle here a lot because it's my fitness track. I encounter the "racing racing cyclists" extremely rarely. They actually prefer the streets more.

    Always nice to go to the Mahrschbahndam. A scenic bike route. Here there are also nice little rest areas that are accessible to everyone.
