Two museums, Jenisch House and Ernst Barlach House, are located within the park. Flottbek River flows through the park and into the Elbe at Teufelsbrück.HistoryCaspar Voght acquired the area along with further nearby fields near Flottbek village from 1785 to 1805. There were four parts: Süderpark (Southern park, today's Jenisch park), Norderpark, (Northern park, today Loki-Schmidt-Garten, Hamburg's botanical garden), Osterpark (Eastern park, today partly a golf course), and Westerpark (Western park, tree nursery intermittently, today Westerpark again).

  • A beautiful park to enjoy a relaxing afternoon. The perfect Hamburg view of the river, as you watch container ship and cruise ships sail by in the distance. Bring a picnic or grill. Dogs are welcome. Plenty if space for soccer, football, frisbee and other outdoor games. It has a path around the perimeter for easy biking. There is also a museum, gallery and cafe to enjoy while you're there. Including bathroom facilities.
  • It's a very scenic park and clean as well.
