This quaint town on the steep Elbe hillside was once a fishing
village favoured by retired ship captains. Today it has become
popular with locals as a weekend excursion from Hamburg, and
visitors also throng the narrow alleys and stairways between
picturesque houses packed together on the cliffside. The village
offers an abundance of cafes and restaurants where patrons can
relax and watch ships steaming in and out of the harbour, and there
are more than half a dozen pretty parks in which to spend a few
hours on a nice day.There is a ferry service to Blankenese from St
Pauli-Landungsbrucken in Hamburg's Free Port.
