The Lohkampsiedlung in Eidelstedt was named Germany’s prettiest small housing estate several times. The estate has beautiful gabled, semi-detached houses with gardens, tucked away on small side streets. Drainage ditches crisscross the area like small picturesque canals. Young families in particular appreciate the modern, low-rise apartments found in the natural area between Kieler Straße and Feldmark, another natural recreation area. The various high-rise estates such as the one near the Hörgensweg AKN train station stand in contrast to the other types of housing.
