If you are looking for a rather quiet district with small town flair, Lokstedt is right. This district presents itself family-friendly and green.
If you walk through Lokstedt, many opposites occur. There are the beautiful art nouveau buildings, in which well-heeled families live, red-brick buildings from the fifties, row and single-family houses, as well as high-rise housing estates. On the streets, there are young mothers with baby carriages, as well as seniors, who meet up for a coffee - it could hardly be more peaceful. The landmark and pride of Lokstedt is the water tower built in 1911 in Neo-Gothic style.
For nature lovers, a bicycle tour can be arranged in the nearby Niendorfer enclosure or the Hagenbecks Tierpark. Various small parks, such as the Von-Eicken-Park, invite you to stroll or jog. For a little more action, a visit to the climbing center of the DAV is worthwhile.
