    The Altonaer Volkspark was created between 1914 and 1933 by the Altona garden director Ferdinand Tutenberg. He pursued the Volkspark thought of providing the urban population with a recreational and natural space.The then still independent city of Altona had a particularly high population density, their population came mostly from the working class milieu. The social function of the park Tutenberg was extremely important, with forest, play and reclining areas and a school garden, he is still widely used.A special feature is the dahlia garden in the northwest of the park, the oldest existing dahlia garden in Europe with numerous rarities of the dahlia world. In late summer, the flowering of around 14,000 varieties of dahlia can be admired.In the north of the park is the HSV Stadium (formerly Volksparkstadion, now Imtech-Arena) and the large event arena (formerly Color Line, now O2 World).hamburg.de/altona/parks-und-gaerten

    A small, hilly piece of forest (with large meadow adjacent) in the middle of the city. Always worth a visit, you can always go new ways. A paradise for dogs.

    Another Oelsner building was raised in the Volkspark from the sinking. Restaurateur André Röhrs renovated the former transformer building together with the Gustav Oelsner Society and the architects Sophie and Thomas Bruss. A terrace with space for readings, concerts and movie nights was built.
    "An alternative to the beach club," says Röhrs.

    The park is a dream. One of the most beautiful places for hiking in Hamburg. You can hike so varied in Hamburg, whether in the city, by lakes, rivers, in the forest or park. It is worth it

    Green, yes green… - Should actually be called Volkswald. There are even a few small climbs.
