From the subway station Wartenau I went south through the Conventstraße.

Through the Hasselbrookstraße past the Fundus Theater and then south.

Eilbek is intersected by two traffic routes. In the north, the Wandsbeker Chaussee, on which there is much traffic and in the south of the tracks of the S-Bahn and trains of the Deutsche Bahn. Nevertheless, it was extremely quiet south of the tracks, except for the wind, I could hear nothing. Eilbek’s flats consist mainly of brick or plaster buildings that were erected after the war, as the Operation Gomorrah had destroyed large parts of the district in July 1943. In between, however, there is always a house that has been spared and still has the typical Hamburg fronts with plaster and ornaments.

The tracks of the railway
The tracks of the S-Bahn and Deutsche Bahn cut through Eilbek. Still, it's pretty quiet, even near the rails.

Crossing Hammer Street / Marienthaler Straße
The intersection Hammer Street / Marienthaler Straße is a kind of center of Eilbek. There are cafes, shops and the Hasselbrook S-Bahn station.
District school Hamburg-Mitte
The district school Hamburg-Mitte is located just east of Eilbek, right on the tracks.

I walked on Marienthaler Straße to the intersection Hammer Steindamm, which is probably the center of Eilbek. There are several shops, cafes and the Hasselbrook S-Bahn station. Continue on the same street until the district school Hamburg-Mitte. Then again over the tracks and to the north. Past the Factory Hasselbrook, a restaurant with a cozy beer garden, which was also filled to the last seat.

At the southern end of the Jacobipark stands an old civil protection bunker from 1942, which is currently being rebuilt and where expensive condominiums are being built. The penthouse with over 200 m² is already sold, but there are still apartments with about 125 m² from 540.000 € to get. The conversion is carried out by a company that specializes in concrete milling, because the bunker currently has no windows.

Continue on the Hasselbrookstraße along the Hasselbrook school, which is a cultural monument and was built in 1905, through the Ritterstraße and then past the Friedenskirche Eilbek (1885).

Then head north over the Wandsbeker Chaussee, which has plenty of shops, and a lot of cafes, restaurants and hookah lounges. North I went along the Eilbeker way, then the Maxstraße to the south and a while along the Wandsbeker Chaussee, through the Eilbeker Bürgerpark and then along a park strip to the east to Peterskampweg.

From the south I went through the Jacobipark, a former cemetery, which is now a park. Some larger graves were preserved as monuments. You can find graves and a family tombs with doctors, mayors or senators. There is a larger pond and a lot of people have grilled in the park, picnics or practiced slackline among the trees. In the north is the Easter church. Unfortunately, the park also seems to be a popular location for drunks who sleep on the benches.

The Jacobipark, a former cemetery, is the destination of numerous picnic friends, barbecue fans, slackline and sports, but is also ideal for a good night’s sleep.

Once again I walked through a residential area in the north and then down the Hammer Steindamm and the Pappelallee again to the north. There are the huge, modern glass buildings of the professional association for health service and welfare, the AOK headquarters Wandsbek and the employment agency Hamburg-Wandsbek.

Office buildings
Near the U-Bahn Wandsbeker Chaussee there are some office buildings: Berufsgenossenschaft für Gesundheitsdienst und Wohlfahrtspflege, AOK headquarters Wandsbek and the employment agency Hamburg-Wandsbek.

Directly at the subway and suburban train station Wandsbeker Chaussee is a huge Edeka market, the only major supermarket in Eilbek (apart from a very small Edeka in Marienthaler street). Here ended my tour through Eilbek.
