Treppenviertel Tours

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.

Practical Info

The Treppenviertel in Blankenese is a small gem in west Hamburg that offers a contrast to the hustle and bustle of the main city. There are a total of 5,000 steps in the district — there are 170 steps on the beach alone. Exploring the town center, the many different stairways, and walking through the park are the main attractions of this neighborhood; seeing the area by boat on a harbor tour is another popular way to visit. The Bergziegen (minibuses of bus line #48), which only operate in Blankenese, wind through the Treppenviertel. You can also get there on the S1 or S11, station ‘Blankenese.’
