About Fahr ein schöneres Hamburg

Die Kampagne „Fahr ein schöneres Hamburg“:
Mit dem „Bündnis für den Radverkehr“ hat die Stadt Hamburg sich im Juni 2016 selbst das Ziel gesteckt, den Radverkehr zu verbessern und so eine fahrradfreundlichere Stadt zu werden. Neben den beschlossenen baulichen Maßnahmen und den Serviceangeboten schaltet die Hamburg Marketing GmbH in enger Abstimmung mit der Behörde für Verkehr und Mobilitätswende eine Kommunikationskampagne zur Stärkung des Radverkehrs sowie der Lebensqualität in Hamburg. Ziel der dreijährigen Aktion ist es, die Bereitschaft für das Radfahren zu steigern, das Engagement der Stadt sicht- und erlebbarer zu machen, die Fahrradfreundlichkeit Hamburgs zu vermitteln und das Klima unter den Verkehrsteilnehmenden Hamburgs zu verbessern.

      The Marienhöhe is located in the west of Hamburg not far from the Elbe. A manor house, a street and an outdoor swimming pool are named after her. In earlier times there was a sand and gravel pit here, which has now been renatured. The entire area with its extensive forest areas was redesigned as a park and is now primarily used for local recreation. In winter, children prefer to use the slopes as toboggan runs. There are also barbecue areas as well as play and sports facilities in what is now the Marienhöhe Forest Park.The forest park is a worthwhile destination not only for walking, but also for cycling. Coming from the banks of the Elbe, a short but relatively steep incline has to be conquered. Otherwise the tour is relatively flat with only a few gentle climbs. You start at Jungfernstieg and drive westwards on back roads with little traffic until you come to the Elbe beach not far from the Waseberg. Between the stairs district and the water you roll along the idyllic promenade and get ready for the greatest difficulty of this tour, the steep climb up to the forest park.After you have crossed the Rissener Landstrasse, you are already in the middle of the Marienhöhe Forest Park. The tour describes a loop that allows you to explore the terrain in peace. The way back then runs a little further north, first through the fields north of Sülldorf and then again over quiet city streets, through the Volkspark of Altona, along the Diebsteich and finally back to the Jungfernstieg. If the way back is too long for you, you can comfortably get on the train at Diebsteich and have yourself chauffeured to Jungfernstieg.

      The Fischbeker Heide is a huge heather area in the south of Hamburg. A tour through this area is challenging due to the hilly terrain with some steep climbs, but also just as rewarding. The heather is named after the Fischbek, a river that has now dried up and whose bed is still visible in the landscape. With a little luck you will meet the herd of Heidschnucken living here on a tour through the heather. It is not for nothing that the Fischbeker Heide has always been one of the most popular motifs of the great landscape painters.It starts on Jungfernstieg, centrally located in downtown Hamburg. You drive past the famous landing stages. To get to the other bank of the Elbe, you don't use a bridge, but the old Elbe tunnel. A nostalgic freight elevator brings you down. Passing through the tunnel is free. At the exit of the Elbe tunnel, it is worth taking a short detour to the Steinwerder lookout point. You will hardly find a better view of the Überseebrücken and the Elbphilharmonie anywhere else.After you have left the Elbe with its countless arms in the port area behind you, the first steep climbs begin, which will challenge you. You are here in the foothills of the so-called Black Mountains. You can expect a steady up and down on paths that wind in many loops through the heather. Past the glider airfield and through the moor belt you finally reach the Elbe again. This time a ferry is waiting to take you to the other side. The last kilometers run through the old town of Altona. A really varied and unique tour comes to an end on Jungfernstieg.

      The Stellmoorer Tunneltal is a nature reserve in the north-east of Hamburg, along the border with the state of Schleswig-Holstein. This is where the Wandse runs, among other things, which has been dammed into a large pond on the site of the nature reserve. The natural landscape and tranquility make the Stellmoorer tunnel valley a worthwhile destination for a day trip. The water-rich landscape is characterized by wetlands and forest areas.The tour begins at Hamburg Central Station, which can be reached quickly and easily from all directions. Since you always move close to the train line on the way there and back, you can theoretically shorten a few kilometers with a short train ride. Simply get off or on at the train stations in Wandsbek, Tonndorf, Rahlstedt or Ahrensburg.You leave the main train station behind you and always drive out of the city on side streets with as little traffic as possible until you finally immerse yourself in the green surrounding area near Rahlstedt. The next few kilometers lead you on the edge of the former Höltingbaum military training area directly into the Stellmoorer tunnel valley. On the way back you cross this nature reserve one more time and also pass the dammed Wandse - a great place for a break. Then you drive back again parallel to the railway line until you meet the Alster and shortly afterwards you reach your starting point at the main train station.

      A bike ride to the cemetery? Absolutely, because the Ohlsdorf cemetery is not an ordinary cemetery. The huge, park-like area in the north of Hamburg is not only the largest green space in the city, with a size of 389 hectares, but actually the largest park cemetery in the whole world. 450 different tree species grow here and numerous water birds cavort on the many bodies of water. There are also many historical buildings to marvel at on the site. So reasons enough to pay a visit to this special cemetery.On a short tour from Barmbek train station, you can discover the Ohlsdorf cemetery wonderfully by bike. Dead straight streets alternate with slightly curved paths and a few roundabouts. Between the more than 200,000 burial sites there are thirteen idyllic chapels, all of which have been designed differently, as well as some impressive mausoleums. War graves and corresponding memorials were also laid out on the extensive site.You can reach the cemetery area along the Bramfelder See from the south. The route describes a large tour over the entire cemetery, so that you get a particularly good impression. Before you finally leave the cemetery in the west, you can find out more about the history of the facility and the many celebrities buried here in the adjoining cemetery museum. Then you go back to the starting point along the Alster and through the city park. With the exception of very short sections of the road, you are only out and about in the countryside on the whole tour.

      The Klövensteen is located on the western outskirts of Hamburg and partly in the neighboring Schleswig-Holstein. Originally there was a large inland dune here. Towards the end of the 18th century the area was afforested. Today the extensive forest area is crossed by riding and hiking trails. This excursion is also worthwhile with children in every season, because here you will find, among other things, a forest playground, a pony farm and a game reserve. In addition to the wonderful nature, there are more than enough reasons to go on a bike tour in the Klövensteen.It starts right in front of Hamburg Central Station, so that getting there by public transport is particularly easy. The Sternschanze, Diebsteich, Wedel and Altona train stations are also directly on the route. Past the Inner Alster you roll purposefully towards the west and you will soon cross the Altonaer Volkspark. You can reach Schenefeld via quiet paths and side streets. From here you leave the city behind and move for kilometers through the green. At Waldenau you will finally immerse yourself in the beautiful Klövensteen.You cross the forest area from north to south and take the Schnaakenmoor with you on your way to the Elbe. Here you can admire a mixture of forest, heather and moorland. On the way back you drive for kilometers along the Elbe beach. In addition to fantastic views of the water, you will also find refreshment stops here that invite you to take a leisurely break. By the way: In the forest of Klövensteen, the City of Hamburg, in cooperation with Klimapatenschaft GmbH, is planting a tree for every ten cyclists who will ride over the Krugkoppelbrücke from December 1st to 8th.

      The tour begins at Poppenbüttel train station. From Altona, Blankenese, Hamburg Central Station or many other stops in the city you can comfortably get to the starting point by train. After a few kilometers you leave the buildings behind you and dive into the green. On the drive through the Heidkoppelmoor and along the Bredenbeker pond, you get in the mood to be out and about in untouched nature. After Rehagen you reach the Hansdorfer Brook, which is directly connected to the Duvenstedter Brook, via quiet dirt roads and again and again through beautiful forest areas. You will explore both of them thoroughly over the next few kilometers.The Duvenstedter Brook is located immediately north of the Wohldorfer Forest. Together with this, the Hansdorfer Brook and the Ammersbek lowland, it forms a huge, contiguous forest area. If you are lucky, you might meet one of the very special, wild inhabitants of this nature reserve or hear his loud and haunted calls during the rutting season. A very large deer population lives here. There are special screens through which you can observe the animals without disturbing them. Cranes and gray herons also breed on the moorland.After you have explored the extensive forest area, you slowly return to Poppenbüttel. The discoveries are not over yet, because you are driving through the middle of the Rodenbeker Quellenental with its countless rivers. Only on the last few kilometers of the tour are you back on the road in city traffic, but also here on the quietest possible side streets. After almost 39 kilometers you will come back to the Poppenbüttel train station and get on the train straight away. If you haven't had enough, you can of course just drive to the nearby Alster and follow the river to downtown Hamburg.

      The Rodenbeker Quellenental is ideal for a relaxed bike tour in the countryside. Here you cycle undisturbed by the noise of the city through wonderfully green beech forests and along many small rivers. There are also fish ponds here where you can take a break. If you're hungry, you can stop off at the hazel bend, for example. This is in the middle of the Quellenental and directly on the route suggested here. On this tour, you might be surprised how quickly you can get out of Hamburg's city center into the countryside and how many exciting discoveries you make along the way.The Rodenbeker Quellental nature reserve is located right next to the course of the Alster in Hamburg's urban area. Gentle hills left behind from the Vistula Ice Age characterize the area. As the name suggests, many small streams originate here, which are also known locally as the Beke. These include the eponymous Rodenbek, but also Lottbek, Bredenbek, Mühlenbek and many other rivers can be found. Incidentally, the area of the Rodenbeker Quellental has been under nature protection since the 1970s. Thanks to its proximity to the city, the area is ideal for a bike excursion.This tour starts at Friedrichsberg train station. If you come by bike from the Outer Alster, the approach along the idyllic Eilbek Canal is ideal. If you prefer not to cycle to the start, you can also get here very comfortably by train. Other stops that are suitable for a quick and easy entry into the route are, for example, Barmbek, Volksdorf or Hoisbüttel. Of course, you can also shorten or lengthen the route with the help of the train or the komoot route planner, if you are in the mood for more adventure. Hamburg definitely has enough to offer.

      The tour begins centrally on Jungfernstieg, directly on the Inner Alster. If you live a bit outside, you can easily get to the starting point by train, for example. The traffic-calmed Jungfernstieg is not one of the most popular destinations in Hamburg for nothing. The Alster ships leave here. The view over the water on the first few kilometers of your tour is unique. Sophisticated buildings are lined up and there is always a lot of activity on the water. Soon you will reach the mouth of the Alster and leave the lake behind you. For the next few kilometers you follow the Alster, which flows in many loops through the Hamburg city area.There is hardly a more relaxed and green way to traverse Hamburg. Away from the traffic, you make your way north to the real highlight of this tour, the Wohldorfer Wald nature reserve. This forest area has been owned by the city of Hamburg since no less than 1437. The landscape is gently undulating, which is related to changes in the terrain in the last ice age. Cyclists can therefore not only enjoy easy climbs and descents, there is also a very varied natural area with many rare animal and plant species.Your tour describes a generous exploratory loop through the forest. You roll along wonderful forest paths through the green of the huge forest area and enjoy the silence of nature. Soon it goes on natural paths and small side streets south again towards the city center. Past the Volksdorfer Teichwiesen you drive on paths with as little traffic as possible and along some small bodies of water until you reach the Osterbek Canal. This flows from the east into the Outer Alster. You now circle it. On the opposite bank you can see the promenade on which you are going at the beginning of the tour. At the Jungfernstieg, the circle closes and you are back at the starting point. By the way, this is also a good place to stop for a break.

      This great gravel tour takes you to the east of Hamburg, where you immerse yourself in the diverse nature around rivers, forests and moors - perfect for working out and switching off.It starts in the middle of Hamburg. On the banks of the Outer Alster you get on the saddle and drive along its banks until you reach the Mundsburg Canal. Here you leave the Alster and follow the canal, which later merges into the Wandse. Along the river you drive on natural paths through the lush green.Shortly before Rahlstedt you turn to the east. Here the route takes you through the Stapelfelder Moor and on beautiful bike and field paths to the Billetal. After a short passage on the river, you dive into the beautiful Sachsenwald, where you drive a large loop that takes you back to the wild and romantic Billetal at the end.Original nature awaits you here. Accordingly, the ways in which you will also deal with some roots are raw. The best way to ride the trails with the gravel bike is when they are dry. If this type of underground is not your taste, you can bypass the short passage through the Billetal by crossing the river at the beginning and driving parallel to it on a wide path through the forest.Then you follow the Bille on less wild paths through Wohltorf and Wentorf to the Boberger Niederungen nature reserve with its beautiful heather. From here you drive back to the starting point at the Outer Alster via Horn and Hamm.
