South of Friedrich-Ebert-Damm there is a residental area, which is poorly maintained. Everything is overgrown with moss, even the street signs. The properties are often overgrown with green and look neglected. The sidewalks are in bad condition, often difficult to walk properly.

Even further south are mainly industry and commerce properties. Everything is pretty bleak, unkempt and ugly. There are countless properties with industry for car (auto repair, tire trade). And a commercial plot for rail needs.

In the forst between Rahlau and Wandse it is quiet and beautiful. There is a concentration camp memorial for about 500 women of KZ Drägerwerk, who where imprisoned here. Serveral women were abused and one killed for allegedly sabotaging property (she had dropped a gas mask).

South of the tracks are mostly industrial properties (costume rental, car dealers). There is a huge area, which looks like abandoned, and belongs to the Bundeswehr. It is a disposal warehouse and is well secured.

Right in the center of Tonndorf: A disposal warehouse of the Bundeswehr. Which things might get disposed here? It’s well secured.

Near the train station Hamburg-Tonndorf is the Studio Hamburg and a large shopping center. East of it is again residential area, predominate individual houses, very small, partly timeworn, in between but also well-kept houses and a few new buildings. North of the tracks it looks similar.

Studio Hamburg
Studio Hamburg, they have a lot of antennas and satellite dishes on the roof.

At the Ostender Teich is an outdoor pool, the gate was open and I could just go in there. There is a small beach and an area where you can swim.
