The big highlights of this beautiful playground with relatively new, mostly wooden equipment is the huge castle with several towers and swinging bridges between them. Further, giant slides wil make your childrens’ heart pound in excitement. Football field, balance park, half pipe and a racing parcour as well as the usual sandbox and swing complete the equipment of this great playground.
Whilst Hummelsbüttel is not exactly central visiting the playground could be combined with a walk alongside the Alster river. I recommend to step out at U-Bahn Klein Borstel or S-Bahn Kornweg (closer to the playground) and then walk the Teetzpark, an area where the Alster is extremly curvy. Check on google maps how nice the walkways will led you through nature. Turn left once you’ve reached the road Grüner Winkel. Cross the Alte Landstrasse and move back a little (direction centre), then enter the green belt again. It is just one walkway, so no chance to miss the playground.
You could finish with an early dinner or a lunch at the restaurant Khan Mongolei. It is no exactly a gourmet spot, but my children love it because it is offering buffet including ice cream with Gummibärchen. Nobody feels disturbed by evermoving children and and they are allowed to conquer the buffet by themselves (the heoght of the table does prevent amess by too young children ;)) The lunch price for children is really, really reasonable and the choice is huge. Just continue walking into Western direction, you’ll end up exactly opposite the restaurant. A bus connects to U-Bahn station Fuhlsbüttel.
