Houses, apartments and villas in the small part of the town create a sense of home
Hamburg Groß Flottbek, whose name goes back to the small creek of Flottbek, is considered one of the smaller districts if Altona with its 2.4 square kilometers. This river runs through the district in the southwest and flows into the Elbe in Othmarschen.
Flottbek was able to maintain a certain village character over the centuries. In particular, the old village core with the Flottbek church and the surrounding half-timbered houses, the building of which dates back to more than 200 years, give the district a unique and homely character. The local farmers market takes place twice a week, and the voluntary fire brigade is involved in fire protection and public festivals. When on stroll through Groß Flottbek, you could almost forget that you're in a district of the second largest city of Germany, and not in an actual rural village.
All around this "village center" one of the most popular residential areas of Hamburg has developed itself, where mainly young families with children have settled down. The architectural diversity ranges from classic North German "coffee grinders", ie red-clinker single-family houses with mostly black pointed roofs, semi-detached houses or townhouses to representative villas of historical or modern design. The full repertoire of condo apartments completes the colorful real estate portfolio of Groß Flottbek, that practically offers the rental and sales of its real estates. Due to the size of the district, the proximity to all the highlights is a given, which are all within walking distance. A pronounced sense of home can quickly develop here, which is also based on strong neighborly cohesion.
From the village to the shopping street

Shopping as much as your heart desires, running your daily errands or simply relaxing with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and watching the hustle and bustle of the street ...
All this is possible thanks to a total of 83 stores and service providers from fashion boutiques, jewelry shops and gastronomy offers right up to bookshops and bank branches directly on site. Your Engel & Völkers Hamburg Elbe site is also located in the middle of Waitzstrasse.
