Uhlenhorst with its special location on the Alster, the “heart of Hamburg”, with the boulevard “Schöne Aussicht” and its white villas, the fairy pond, green spaces, the mosque, many canals and old town houses and various other sights is an attractive district. The city centre is only a 15-minute walk away. The district slowly emerged in the second half of the 19th century. The first large villas were located on the Schöne Aussicht “with access and gardens to the Alster. The “Uhlenhorster conditions” were developed, which prevented any type of business west of the Hofweg and the construction of apartment blocks so that interested parties could stay among themselves. One of the most beautiful places of worship is the neo-Gothic St. Gertrud Church on the Kuhmühlen pond. One of the oldest buildings here is today’s Literature House with its magnificent ballroom. There have been houseboats in the Eilbek Canal since 2008. With the “Alsterperle” and a few other restaurants there are nice places to linger directly at the water’s edge.
