Yes, yes: Blankenese is the pearl of Hamburg, where everything is posh and eye-wateringly expensive. But there’s more to Blankenese than the picturesque Treppenviertel, Karl Lagerfeld and money, money, money! It is quite simply one of the most stunning parts of the Hanseatic City. Why not let yourself get a little carried away by it all and head to Kaffeegarten Schuldt, where you can even bring your own coffee and have it brewed for you. The view is priceless too!

Neuenfelde is also famous for its apple and pear orchards. It forms part of the “Third Mile” of the Altes Land, Northern Europe’s largest self-contained fruit-growing area. Neuenfelde is also home to Hamburg’s oldest and most tradition-steeped shipyard, Pella Sietas. A walk here is always worthwhile – not just in spring, when the fruit trees are in blossom. Our tip: come down and see for yourself!
