From the underground station Mundsburg I went over the large intersection at the Mundsburg-Center. Directly at the intersection is a memorial commemorating the 370 people who died on July 30, 1943 in the bombed Karstadt bunker on Hamburger Straße.

Underground station Mundsburg, which is still in Uhlenhorst. But starting from the street Barmbek-Süd begins.

I turned into the residential area behind the Hamburger Meile and went north. A lot of red brick buildings, but in between older buildings with lots of stucco and decorations.

Then walking again to the south and past the Old Schützenhof (1867), in which the professional criminal Adolf Petersen (Lord of Barmbeck) in the early 20th century had a pub, which was a meeting place for criminals. Later, he gave up his pub and devoted himself entirely to the safe cracking and his raids, which brought him repeatedly prison prison, even once 12 years. When he was imprisoned again in 1933, he hanged himself in the cell.

Ich bin weiter hinter der Hamburger Meile entlang gegangen, am Bartholomäusbad vorbei.

In the area are very beautiful old buildings with stucco and a lot of jewelry on the facades.

I walked through the Johannes-Prassek-Park near Alster-City and looked from a bridge over the Osterbekkanal to expensive penthouse apartments.

I once looked at the Alster-City from close by and went right next to it through the residential area, which is extremely quiet and idyllic.

Beautiful residential areas around Alster-Nord, quiet, modern and green.

I walked past the district court Hamburg-Barmbek, back to the north and then on the Biedermannplatz south. Then every now and then to the north and south. At the intersection Barmbeker Markt and Hamburger Straße I went to the Reesestraße north to the canal.

I continued along on the road Flachsland, where I could take a look at the T.R.U.D.E. (Tief runter unter die Elbe, engl. deep down under the Elbe) on the other side of the canal, which stands in the courtyard of the Museum für Arbeit. It is the former largest boring head in the world, with which the tubes of the Elbtunnel were dug. Along the Bramfelder Straße and back to the south, a long time along Eilbekkanal and back to the north.

Past the Hansa-Kolleg and then through a park along the Wandse. Once around the huge Schön-Klinik, a hospital with 700 beds and 1500 employees, and further north.
