Sports and Exercise Active City Bewegungsinseln

Active City Hamburg offers plenty of sites for an open-air workout – free of charge for everyone. Just come to one of the many Bewegungsinseln to break a sweat and feel great!

Active City Hamburg – Bewegungsinseln for everyone

One of the goals of Active City Hamburg is to make physical activity and sport available to all Hamburg residents at any time. To that end, Hamburg has installed a total of seven Bewegungsinseln (lit. ‘movement islands’ or ‘exercise islands’) – one in each of Hamburg’s districts.

Fitness and well-being for all Hamburg residents

Everyone can do their workout routine in the open air completely free of charge. Each Active City Bewegungsinsel is equipped with a pair of parallel bars, a set of high bars at different heights, a bench, and a multi-purpose all-in-one training tool called Trimmfit. All training tools at the Active City Bewegungsinseln grounds are certified and safe to use. 

Whether you come as part of a sport club, unofficial sport group or as single athlete, the Bewegungsinseln are easy to use for everyone. The training intensity can be adjusted individually to any athlete’s level or stamina, independent of their age. Convenient signposts with best practices at all sites will guide any athlete safely through their routine and provide useful training tips.

How to find your closest workout spot

There is an Active City Bewegungsinsel in each one of Hamburg’s seven districts, so all Hamburg residents can reach them conveniently. Additionally, all of them are surrounded by parks and green areas, giving athletes the opportunity to work out in a natural setting. Apart from this unique atmosphere and fun factor during workouts, the training is of course also good for your health.
