Stadtpark Recreational Green Area in Winterhude District
With around 1.5 million square metres, Stadtpark (lit. city park) in Winterhude is the third largest park in Hamburg. For the centennial anniversary in 2014, around 1.6 million euros were invested in flower beds, paths, playgrounds and the renovation of the Planetarium.
Especially in summer, life is easy around the luscious green meadows. Hundreds of locals and visitors alike come to Winterhude, where the park serves them as a popular meeting point and recreational site. However, the park is not only the right place for meeting people and sunbathing. In summer, music enthusiasts will also get their money’s worth. Thousands head to the open-air stage to experience performances in a unique setting. Art lovers will find more than 20 different sculptures and installations.
The Planetarium attracts another 300,000 visitors every year. Thanks to numerous concerts, presentations and films, the 70 metres tall building boasts an extremely broad cultural programme. Additionally, the rooftop terrace offers a stunning view over park and city. Currently, the planetarium is under renovation and will reopen in Spring of 2017.
