Bike Touring Highlight
Once a fishing island, later part of the German shipyard AG, and today a popular destination for the Finkenwerder population, so can be in a few words the Gorch Fock Park on the south bank of the Elbe describe. The eponymous poet was born in 1880 on Finkenwerder native poet Johann Kinau, who published under the pseudonyms Gorch Fock, Jakob Holst and Giorgio Focco.As one of the few Hamburg green areas on the southern bank of the Elbe, the Gorch Fock Park offers an unfamiliar view of the Hanseatic city. The green ribbon of Schröder's Elbpark, Hindenburgpark, Jenischpark, Hirschpark and Baurs Park can be seen in its entire length. And while you can rarely catch a glimpse of one of the magnificent villas on the north bank of the Elbe from the Elbchaussee, because they are shielded by huge trees or massive gates, they can be wonderfully viewed from the Gorch Fock Park.In addition to the beautiful views, the Gorch-Fock-Park also offers a circular route with plenty of seating, sports fields and probably one of the most beautiful outdoor pools in Hamburg. While the visitor here in the park expects a rather quiet spot, the neighboring Rüsch peninsula offers the possibility of more active uses.hamburg.de/parkanlagen/3060040/gorch-fock-park
