Hamburg meets Schleswig-Holstein: Living in a house in Wedel
In the multifaceted Wedel, there are good opportunities for real estate sales
If you follow the Elbe out of Hamburg heading west, you enter Wedel, the first town on the territory of Schleswig-Holstein. The contemplative Wedel with about 30,000 residents is only slightly larger than the neighboring Elbsuburb Rissen, but sets its own small town accents, which makes Wedel interesting as a real estate location for single and multi-family house. Over centuries old traditions, some sights, natural recreational areas, regular events and, of course, proximity to the river Elbe increase the attractiveness of your property on sale.
The town of Wedel is quite diverse according to its geographic location. In the northern part of the city are mostly agricultural areas and some forest and wetlands. The rural atmosphere of Schleswig-Holstein is already noticeable here. The tranquility and naturalness of this region attracts hikers and cyclists alike. In the Klövensteen forest, there is also a wilderness park, where young and old can observe the wild pigs, deer and other animals that live here.
In the center of Wedels lies the town hall square, where among other things the municipal library, the post office, and some restaurants and sales are located. On the market square stands the city's landmark: the "Roland", a larger than life-sized knight figure, which in the Middle Ages was a symbol for various buying and selling rights on the market. Around this center, mainly settlements with single-family houses and multi-family houses of various sizes can be found. There is a typical small town flair, not really a metropolis, but also no rural village - although both worlds are only a stone's throw away! This is exactly what makes Wedel interesting in real estate sales for a broad clientele.
Wedel's numerous leisure facilities and properties right on the Elbe
A world-unique highlight of Wedel is its ship "Welkhofer Höft" on the Elbe River. Here, the national anthem is played for both ships entering and leaving, and the crews receive a farewell or a warm welcome. A popular spectacle that anyone can observe publicly - whether with or without a house in Wedel.
Wedel is also a good starting point for private shipping. Hamburg's yacht harbor with more than 2,000 berths is Nordeurop's largest tide-less sports port, with numerous sailing, motorboat and water sports clubs.
Wedel's "Badebucht" also has a lot to do with water, but it's not a place to bathe in the river Elbe: it is a spa and swimming pool near the village center, where a sports and adventure pool, playing field with lawns and five different sauna-landscapes make leisure time outside of your house more enjoyable.
If you would like to deepen your knowledge of astrology, you have the opportunity to do so along the Wedeler Planet Trail. This 10-kilometer-long nature trail illustrates the dimensions of the universe on the basis of 10 models of heavenly bodies, and also lets children dream of the stars.
Enjoying life with a family home in Wedel
Thanks to its proximity to Hamburg, Wedel is profiting from the well-developed infrastructure of the Hansestadt - usually an important sales argument in concluding negotiations. In terms of mobility, Wedel is, for example, conveniently connected to Hamburg's transport networks. These include the S-Bahn connection to the terminus station Bahnhof Wedel, the federal road 431, and a ferry connection via the Elbe river.
Around the village center there are many shopping opportunities as well as kindergartens, schools, and a little to the north, the Regio Clinic Wedel. Cultural enthusiasts will get their money's worth in the city archives as well as in the town museum Wedel or on the theatrical boat Batavia, while athletes can take advantage of the offers of the Wedeler TSV, which is one of the most varied clubs in the region with 20 departments and more than 2,000 members. With regular events in Wedel, be it the harbor festival, the "Wedeler Kulturnacht" or the open-air cinema event in the summer, there's a right thing for everyone.
