Lovely and charming place if you like walking. You will find true hamburgians here on weekends strolling along the River or through the Treppeniertel. Worth a trip.

I love it! Countless stairs and alleys, great views of the water, the beautiful houses and finally the great beach at the river. For every traveller who wants to discover something special, far away from the hustle and bustle.

Get out to Blankenese for a quiet day at the Elbe. Walk down the stairs and chill out on the beach or at the restaurant over the water. It is lovely.

We had a lovely day in Blankenese, exploring the village and riverside neighborhoods. It was nice to get out of Hamburg for a different experience and vista.

I like this place very very much. But I find it confusing as I didn't know which side to pick for a better view and a walk.
