Great part of bahn_hoefe is made up of what used to be the “Reichsbahndirektion” (head quarters of the state railway) of 1895. This charming brick building with its three courtyards, located in an exposed position, has a great potential to unite manyfold usage under one roof.
Sustainable planning also means preserving the old and using existing potentials. Professional newcomers are looking for affordable working spaces, students would like attractive living spaces close to the city centre, creative minds need inspiring surroundings with good vibes – and bahn_hoefe in Ottensen offers all of this.
The existing architecture does not only captivate due to its generous and quiet courtyards. Moreover, it is its great building substance, its wide staircases and the stylistic elements from the first part of the 20th centurey worthy of preservation which form the unique character of this building complex.
