Sülldorf is a district of Hamburg in the Altona district .


Neighboring communities

The district borders on Hamburg-Rissen to the west, Schenefeld (Pinneberg district) in Schleswig-Holstein to the north, Hamburg-Blankenese to the south and Hamburg-Iserbrook to the east .


To the north of federal highway 431 and the S-Bahn line to Wedel / Holstein (S1), the old farming village is still partially preserved, embedded in the extensive agricultural areas of the Sülldorf-Rissener Feldmark . This goes over to the northwest in the forest Klövensteen . There are also some active farms, the majority of which offer services for horse owners (“horse pensions”). In the Feldmark north of the street Ellernholt there are remains of a flak position.

To the south of the Feldmark there are mostly newer residential areas with single and terraced houses, at the Iserbrook S-Bahn station and on Op'n Hainholt street there are also higher-rise apartment buildings, mostly from the 1960s and 70s. Between Op'n Hainholt Street and the S-Bahn in the south is a closed SAGA rental housing estate from the 1950s with two-storey terraced houses made of prefabricated concrete slabs. The simple, coal-heated apartments with a small garden were only connected to the district heating network in the mid-1990s .

Originally everything for daily needs was in this settlement. The central single-storey middle building initially housed a communal wash house, a hot iron, a police station and a district library for the Hamburg public library . The police station was initially replaced by a blue police emergency number on Op'n Hainholt Street, after which the station was converted into an apartment. Later this column also disappeared. Other street names in this settlement are Fuhlendorfweg, Mestorfweg and Spliethweg. Before the new buildings mentioned in the previous paragraph were erected, there was a clear line of sight between these houses and Thesdorf over meadows and fields.

Flowing waters

The Wedeler Au rises in the Sülldorfer Feldmark . It flows a short distance through Sülldorf and then over cracks to Wedel, where it flows into the Elbe .


The settlement history of Sülldorf goes back to the Stone Age . Even today, several barrows in the area as well as an urn cemetery, of which a small replica was built near the S-Bahn station, bear witness to this. In 1256 Sülldorf was first mentioned in a document as Suldorpe. The name is probably derived from Suhle and refers to the many water holes that were around the settlement. Sülldorf was in the Pinneberg district until 1927 , then became a district of Altona / Elbe through the Groß-Altona law and, together with this, fell to Hamburg in 1938 due to the Groß-Hamburg law . In May 2006 the 750th anniversary was celebrated.

The parish has now been merged with the Martin Luther Church in Iserbrook. In front of the Sülldorf church there is a boulder with the engraved names of the local soldiers who died in the First World War .

To the north of the railway line, Sülldorf still shows the typical character of a Geest village with several still intact farms and numerous thatched roofs. The association Get Sülldorf! has been campaigning for the preservation of the village center and against the desire to designate parts of the Feldmark as building land since the 1980s.

The TSV Sülldorf from 1925 has indicated that more than 500 members. In equestrian sports, the riding club at Klövensteen and the Hof Eggerstedt riding club regularly hold various tournaments. The outdoor pool in the Marienhöhe forest park and the Waldesruh sports field run by the Blankenese game association are also located in Sülldorf .

Regular events

The annual Sülldorf Fire Brigade Festival, which has been organized since 1970, has achieved a certain level of awareness , and in earlier years it occasionally required a large police operation to settle disputes; Apart from that, this fire brigade festival is above all a social event for the residents of Sülldorf and neighboring districts.

On Thanksgiving parade school and kindergarten, farmers and local businesses participate with self decorated vehicles. On Thanksgiving Sunday 2007, September 30th, the 50-year parish fair was also celebrated.

Until the introduction of the electric S-Bahn, Sülldorf station also had a third track, which was located north of today's tracks and was used by freight trains. The mechanical signal box "Sdf" is located next to the tracks , from which form signals and railway barriers in the Sülldorf station area are still controlled today.
