      The air so clear, the view so wide
      Arguing about the most beautiful blue
      the lake and the sky.
      Is a day like this in November
      then it's like it's September
      and far away the winter time.

      Iserbrook is Low German and means "iron break". Turf iron ore was once extracted here from the upper layers of the earth, which had settled in the swampy quarry land. There is nothing left of the former Feldmark; instead, Iserbrook became a collection of post-war settlements that were supposed to cover the strongly increased demand for living space in Hamburg. The unpretentious part of the city has neither a park nor a green strip nor a sightseeing spot to offer, but there is enough of it all around.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamburg-Iserbrook

      Sunday. Imperial autumn weather. Leaves rustling under the boots. Moment of happiness!
      The great Eutin Lake is always good for a hearty circumnavigation. Today with hiking sticks without long stays.

      Today I would like to use the official website of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg <hamburg.de> to describe the district, a reliable source of information for my district tours:
      "City villas, English gardens, unpaved sidewalks, huge trees with deeply furrowed bark that have been around for centuries - that is Groß Flottbek. One is amazed at the enormous tranquility in the middle of the city, which is occasionally caused by the landing approach of a low-flying one A380 is interrupted. "
      This is exactly what Groß Flottbek looks like, I felt today as I strolled leisurely through the small district. Some senior citizens, however, who have often unintentionally demolished the shop windows of Waitzstrasse with their automobiles, do not at all fit in with the understatement of this district. We are currently working on this with heavy material and a large amount of resources.
      ▪ Information about the district: hamburg.de/sehenswertes-gross-flottbek
      ▪ to the bollards in Waitzstrasse: ndr.de/nachrichten/hamburg/Nach-Unfallserie-Massive-Poller-fuer-die-Waitzstrasse,waitzstrasse166.html

      I've never been to Osdorf either. The hike through this district of contrasts surprised me positively, because there are plenty of opposites to discover:
      ▪ the Loki Schmidt garden full of botany (which is currently closed due to Corona),
      ▪ the magnificent villas of the Hochkamps,
      ▪ the green expanse of the Osdorfer Feldmark,
      ▪ the small Schack lake with adjoining Borne Park,
      ▪ the huge large housing estate Osdorfer Born,
      ▪ the "Lieutenant General Graf von Baudissin" barracks (a former flak barracks)
      ▪ the Elbe shopping center
      ▪ as well as small settlements from the 1930s around the barracks.
      It was not boring on this tour, but the cloudy November day caused cold fingers.

      The Wandsbeker history workshop has created the "Eilbeker Round Table" based on the model of the 'Historical Tour through Wandsbek'. 45 bright red information boards have been criss-crossing the district since 2010. One can follow up important and less important stories from the recent past. So I know e.g. now that Max Schmeling spent his youth in Hasselbrookstrasse, where Hans Fallada was inspired to write his novel "Whoever eats out of a tin bowl" in 1928 in the immediate vicinity.
      Unfortunately, there is not much historical information left to see, as Eilbek was almost completely destroyed during the heavy air raids of Operation Gomorrah in July 1943. Only the Auenviertel was spared. Nevertheless, I found the ten-kilometer historical circular route informative. Recommended by me for tracking.

      "To change means to preserve" is the motto of the <Ohlsdorf 2050> project, which aims to shape the future of the Ohlsdorf cemetery. A noble goal!

      This November day is gray. But it's also quiet - and that suits the district well. In the north: pastures. I can spot all kinds of animals on it. The Waldschänke is still open - despite Corona. At the kiosk there are tasty treats from chef Dennis. You have to look for a seat, the pandemic restriction wants it that way.
      The Sülldorfer Landstrasse separates the district, the south of Sülldorf looks completely different. Beech forest dominates here. The rustling of leaves under the boots is very nice. This is how autumn is most beautiful, I think!
      The name Sülldorf is derived from the Low German Suldorp, which means "village where pigs wallow". I couldn't see pigs anywhere. But horses - everywhere.

      The weather - beautiful autumn - made this tour through Othmarschen a pleasure. The only downer in the district is the entrance of the A7 into the Elbe tunnel, in front of which it often jams heavily. Yesterday, however, there was free travel in both directions. I checked this dark point right at the beginning of the tour. So afterwards I only had the highlights in front of me, of which there are numerous in this noble Elbe suburb. What I enjoyed most was Jenischpark, which I like so much because of the gnarled old trees. But the way along the Elbe with a constant view of the city and harbor is always beautiful. I really enjoyed my break in Schröders Elbpark - high above the Elbe on a bench in the glorious autumn sun. Great tour of a part of the city that is well worth seeing.

      I've never been in - that's the name of a small series worth watching on NDR about the 104 districts of Hamburg. I could apply for Lurup because I've actually never been there.
      This part of the city, which scrapes against the Schleswig-Holstein state border, is not so bad either. Probably living in the numerous single-family houses is not bad. The apartment buildings, which are more likely to be found along the S-Bahn line, mostly make a well-kept impression. However, there is no city center and there are probably not many shopping opportunities either. But there are plenty of allotments and a few parks. My personal highlight in Lurup was the imaginatively designed playground on the edge of Bornpark.
