Tradition and style in a modern harbor

Hamburg’s origin is the river Elbe and its natural harbor, but life there now pulses on every street, unexpectedly. Many believe that the city is laid-back and even boring, forgetting that the Reeperbahn is probably the most sinful mile in the world. Poverty amidst great wealth give Hamburg an interestingly appealing diversity – there’s something to be discovered by everyone, experienced and marveled at every day. The city is bustling and energetic, beloved for both its contemporary scene as well as for its cultural offerings.

Jenisch-Haus

An ideal place with ideal furnishings

Stay Editor's Note

Jenisch-Haus was built at the turn of the 19th Century, but serves today as a branch of the famous Altonaer Museum. This lovely home is the perfect exhibition hall for period furnishings from the 16th through 19th centuries. Visitors can walk about some of the most striking examples anywhere.

This fabulous home has many interesting secrets, including the fact that Karl Friedrich Schinkel contributed to its design. Located in an idyllic spot along the River Elbe, the house and gardens are a thing to behold in themselves. Then the artwork and furnishings of the home present even more fascinating reasons to visit.
