This place is great for a hike with the family, as you can show them the bustling colony of Grey Heron. There are also species present like Great Cormorant, Great Crested Grebe or even a Common Kingfisher. Northern Goshawk show up regularly and occasionally an interesting duck or some Bohemian Waxwing can be observed.
You can park nearly everywhere around the lake.

The Ohlsdorfer Friedhof just north is also a great place, where Eurasian Eagle Owl, Eurasian Hobby, Northern Goshawk, Common Kingfisherand many more breed, though they're hard to find and information is held back. Understandably, as dozens of photographers here often go to great lengths, without considering the well-being of these birds.
