Rotherbaum is a quarter of Eimsbüttel, a borough of Hamburg. In 2016 the population was 16,456. In German, “roter Baum” means red tree. The “th”, which in general was abolished in the spelling reform of 1900, was preserved in names. Depending on grammatical context, it might also be spelled with n as Rothenbaum. The campuses of the University of Hamburg and the University of Music and Drama of Hamburg are located in Rotherbaum. Directly at the artificial Außenalster lake is the Consulate General of the United States.

In 2006, according to the statistical office of Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein, Rotherbaum had a total area of 2.9 km². To the North the quarter Harvestehude is located. The southern boundaries of Rotherbaum to the quarters Neustadt, St. Pauli and Sternschanze are formed by the railway tracks of the city train. In the West the quarter Eimsbüttel can be found. In the East the lake Außenalster marks the boundaries to the quarter of St. Georg.

Since 1800, distinguished and rich Hamburg citizens built the mansions at the bank of the Außenalster lake, to move from the city to a better surrounding area. An example is the building at Alsterufer street #27, built by Martin Haller—the architect of the Hamburg Rathaus—the building was later owned by Anton Riedemann, the founder of Deutsch-Amerikanischen Petroleum-Gesellschaft; later Esso.

From 1946 to 1948, war crime trials were held by the British Armed Forces in the Curiohaus, an office building which is named after Johann Carl Daniel Curio. Located in Rotherbaum’s Rothenbaumchaussee 15, it survived the bombing of Hamburg.
