Elb Romance on the slope: Hamburg's leading district of Blankenese is a first-class location for the sale of your property
The fact that the city of Hamburg is one of the most diverse in all of Germany is impressively demonstrated by the Blankenese district with its individual properties. Situated in the western part of the town directly on the Elbe, the former fishing village stretches along a hill formation, a so-called Geestrücken. The geography of the town also makes the townscape of Blankenese literally different from the rest of Hamburg: small, fancy houses and graceful villas line along the slope, traversed by green areas and trees. From the highest point of this elevation, the Baursberg, to the sandy beaches on the banks of the Elbe - in Blankenese, the calm atmosphere and the first-class quality of life are everywhere, which is ideal for the sales possibilities of your property.
Due to its close proximity to Hamburg, the region of today's Blankenese held a special status more than a 1,000 years ago: Originally, fortresses, which were to secure the ferry traffic on the Elbe, stood right here. Over the centuries, more and more well-off individuals have recognized the natural advantages of the fishing village as a location for your villa or house, and settled down here. Over time, Blankenese has developed into one of the most beautiful and wealthy villa district in Hamburg, where its residents have created a unique idyll for their well being: Blankenese today houses some impressive mansions in classical style - including the Landhaus Warburg or the Landhaus Godeffroy In the Hirsch Park. Numerous parks and trees adorn the slope and invite you to stroll around and relax, for example the Roman Garden or Goßlers Park. The design of the Blankenese district has, in the past, attracted much attention and craftsmanship from which the real estate owners can now profit. Not unjustly, therefore, the villas and single and multi-family houses are some of the most coveted of the whole Hanseatic city. An ideal environment to sell your home or villa.

In Blankenese tradition is a top priority - even for the little ones
The immediate proximity to the Elbe and the location on the Steilhang in Hamburg Blankenese have resulted in the fact that unique traditions were preserved to this day.
Three Easter bonfires, which are lit annually at their steady festive place, ensure a solemn atmosphere on the Elbe. They testify to their homeliness and cultural rootedness, which will also quickly attract moving property buyers after the successful purchase.
In the winter, the Blankenese residents also know two traditions, which are particularly popular among the children: when sledding with a "kreek", a flat, wide sledge is used to ride down the slope in Schinckels Park - a custom exclusively practiced in Hamburg Blankenese. The Kreeks achieve very high speeds compared to conventional tobogganing sleds.
This and other customs show once more how family-friendly Blankenese, Hamburg's "Bullerbü", also opens up to the children. This also reflects in the above-average rate for children and adolescents in Hamburg of 17.6%.
