The majority of Hamm was destroyed by Operation Gomorrah in 1943, so there are only occasionally old-style houses here and there. Besides that there are a lot of brick buildings, but also plastered houses. Many apartments have really small windows and I could often see that the light was switched on during bright daylight.

In Hamm is the Döhnerstraße, which did not get its name from the Döner kebab, but from Friedrich Adolf Döhner, a merchant and politician.

In the south of Hamm is a shelter and the properties of the police dog sports club. South along the Bille there are only large areas of small garden clubs, as well as on the Billerhuder Insel (which belongs to Rothenburgsort). Countless yachts are anchored on the banks here, and families drive their boats around the canals.
