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 is extremely quiet south of the tracks.

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.

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.
