North of the underground station Mundsburg is the Mundsburg-Center, it’s three skyscrapers can be seen over a long distance.
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.
Behind the shopping center Hamburger Meile are numerous residential areas. A lot of red brick buildings, but in between older buildings with lots of stucco and decorations.
The Alter Schützenhof (1867), located in a yellow painted building has a quite famous history: It was the pub of the professional criminal Adolf Petersen (Lord of Barmbeck) and meeting place for criminals in the early 20th.
Later, he gave up his pub and devoted himself entirely to safe cracking and raids, which brought him repeatedly prison sentences, even once for 12 years. When he was imprisoned again in 1933, he hanged himself in the cell.
In the area are very beautiful old buildings with stucco and a lot of jewelry on the facades.
On the other side of canal in the courtyard of the Museum für Arbeit stands the T.R.U.D.E. (Tief runter unter die Elbe, engl. deep down under the Elbe river). It is the former largest drill head in the world, with which the tubes of the Elbtunnel were dug.
The Schön-Klinik is a huge hospital with multiple buildings, 700 beds and 1500 employees.
