Blankenese

From fishing village to exclusive suburb

Life at the Elbe wasn’t always as exquisite as it is today. The former fishing village only became a place of magnificent country houses and parks in the 1800s. The location right at the Elbe, the picturesque hilly landscape and the proximity to Hamburg were a special attraction already back then. 

Blankenese today is a popular place of residence and an attractive tourist destination. 

Walk with us down the stairs – to the water and learn more about living at the hill.
