Location of "Lauenbrock" between Harburg and the Hamburg Moorburg on the map of Gustav Adolf von Varendorf (1789–1796)

Lauenbruch was a village on the Süderelbe in the area of ​​what is now the Heimfeld district of Hamburg . The former location was on the site of the later Harburg seaport, which has been part of the Hamburg harbor since 1937 .

It is mentioned as Louwenbrock on a map of the Elbe from 1628 . In 1906 Lauenbruch was incorporated into the urban district of the then independent city of Harburg (Elbe). As early as 1902, a port construction consortium had bought land from the municipality. In 1904 the first construction work for the extension of the Harburg harbor began on the Lauenbrucher meadows. In the following years, the open tidal port basins Seehafen 1–3 (from 1927 finally Seehafen 4 ) were built. The residents of the community were expropriated or sold their land. In 1928 the former fishing village was completely demolished.

Today only a few street names are reminiscent of Lauenbruch: the former access road Lauenbrucher Straße and the streets Lauenbruch Ost, Lauenbrucher Deich, Lauenbrucher Hauptdeich located between the Harburg inland port and Seaport 1 .
