Walter Möller Park, Hamburg

About the project

In the centre of the international maritime city of Hamburg is a green corridor named after the German anti-fascist Walter Möller.

After World War II vast swathes of Hamburg lay in ruins. As part of the city’s reconstruction, a new city plan was developed in which the Altona district would be rebuilt with apartment buildings, tower blocks and green spaces.

In 1985 the acclaimed landscape architect Professor Herta Hammersbacher (1900–1985) won first prize for her proposal for a green corridor. The area extends 1.8 kilometres from the fish market in the south to Holstenstraße in the north.

The park is a typical example of 1950s landscape architecture, in which people and cars should be strictly separated. The various sections of park are therefore linked together with subways and bridges.

In recent years the green areas have been upgraded with playgrounds, cafés, skating park and meeting places.

Vestre has supplied furniture to several of the parks in Altona.
