<< Hamburg

Blankenese was once inhabited by fishermen, usually of limited means, before captains and pilots settled in the beautiful houses on the slopes overlooking the Elbe river. Nowadays, Blankenese is one of the top addresses in Hamburg, which has no lack of top addresses as it is. This attractive district on the outskirts of the Elbe metropolis can be reached quickly by public transport, or else you can get there down the river by boat - somewhat more slowly but in more fitting style. The narrow alleys with their countless flights of steps are best explored on foot, and as you go along, you will keep catching glimpses of the Elbe. The views also inspired the artists who once lived here, as well as those who continue to do so. Background and historical information about Blankenese can be found nearer the city centre, at the Altona Museum.
