Tourism in Rotherbaum

Culturally the area has a lot to offer. The Abaton Cinema at Alendeplatz next to the university is the oldest repertory cinema in Germany, with a wide selection of current and vintage films.

A number of beautifully designed parks invite you to rest in pristine nature. Here it is worth mentioning Von-Melle-Park near the university and the 12-hectare Sternschanzenpark. Sternschanzenpark is home to a water tower, formerly the biggest in Europe, to be marvelled at with its 57.5 metres. In 2007 the tower became the Mövenpick Hotel Hamburg.

With 350,00 objects on exhibit, the Ethnological Museum, founded 1979, is the one of the biggest museums of its kind in Europe. A ‘Market of the People’ is also located on the premises. Visitors are not only able to acquire the products of various cultures, but also view the making of arts and crafts over the shoulder of the artist. The whole experience is rounded off by lectures.
