Altona Volkspark is a 205ha large urban park in the Hamburg district of Bahrenfeld, in the borough of Altona. Ahead of Hamburg Stadtpark, it is the largest park in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, Germany. Altona Volkspark is located some 3 km off the inner city. Largest parks in the city-center are Planten un Blomen and Alsterpark.Notably, Hamburger SV home ground Volksparkstadion, O2 World and Volksbank Arena are located within the park's fringes.OverviewAltona Volkspark was developed in four phases. Designed and built by then Garden director Ferdinand Tutenberg (1874–1956), the first section was developed between 1914 and 1915. Subsequent parts of the park were opened in 1918, 1920 and 1928. Altona Volkspark was conceptualized as a people's park with areas for play, sport, recreation and education, instead of artistic representation or architectural principles. It is therefore characterized by a lot of untouched nature, rather than formal park design.The park also contains the Bahrenfeld harness racetrack (Trabrennbahn) and the Altona Dahlia Garden.To visit Altonaer Volkspark and get the most from your holiday in Hamburg, create itinerary details personal to you using our Hamburg trip maker tool.
Altonaer Volkspark Reviews
This is one of my favorite green hot spots in Hamburg - easy to reach via HVV and ideal for runners no matter if you want to train short sections like intervals or get lost on one of the many trails..... more »
Huge park where you can wander for hours running, walking your dog, having a picnic. Would love to come back in a warmer month. more »
A lovely large wooded area containing gardens and long walk ways for cycling and jogging. Small free car parks available and well maintained grounds
A beautiful place for spring summer or autumn.. people with children or friend groups can also make picnics, go for a long walk with their pets, have some beer and food at the Biergarten inside, go for a nice evening jog and really enjoy the wonderful nature inside the busily bustling city of Hamburg..
