Treppenviertel Tours and Activities

If you think Hamburg only has flat landscapes, think again! The Treppenviertel in Blankenese, Altona, is a small neighborhood located on a slope directly above the Elbe River. About 5,000 stairs lead through a cozy group of small mansions and historic houses, up to a beautiful view of the Port of Hamburg. The former fishing village is now a popular tourist destination, and a residential area for wealthy citizens of Hamburg. One of Germany’s prettiest hiking trails runs along the banks of the Elbe River to Blankenese.

With meandering alleys and white-painted houses, the Treppenviertel has a relaxed Mediterranean vibe — it almost feels like a resort on the Riviera. The Blankeneser Bahnhofstrasse (the area’s main street) is home to a weekly market, a picturesque church, and numerous cafes, restaurants, and ice-cream parlors. Wonderful views of the container ships entering and leaving the Port of Hamburg tempt the visitor to stay and watch, and there’s also a lighthouse that’s open to tourists. A great way to see Blankenese is by boat, on a harbor tour.
