Service description

Around 20 percent of Hamburg's state area is currently designated as a landscape protection area. The landscape protection area has its roots in the Reich Nature Protection Act of 1935. The regulations there were essentially aimed at protecting the landscape to ensure its function for recreation in the open countryside. In the 1950s and 1960s, as everywhere in the Federal Republic, a number of LSG ordinances with the stated objective were issued in Hamburg Areas of forest villages (Wandsbeker Geest, Alster Valley) and the Harburg Mountains (Haake). The marsh areas (Süderelbmarschen, Wilhelmsburg Elbe Island, Vierlanden and Marschlanden) were not taken into account with a few exceptions.
