Blankenese is in the far west of Hamburg and probably one of the most famous and exclusive residential area of the town. The neighborhood is dominated by one or two-family houses with relatively large gardens and most of them are owned. Lots of villas with park-like grounds can be spotted. Exceptions are "Süllberg" and "Treppenviertel", where the realties are very small and relatively small houses are glued to the soft hills of the banks of the Elbe. People living here have money, often "old" money. Traditional sport is sailing on the Elbe. Its local "center" is a nice place with beautiful buildings and cute shops.

The "Treppenviertel" (Quarter of Stairs) is split by two roads only, any path else is too small for cars and stairs after stairs need to be climbed. It is one of the most beautiful sights and a must for a half-day trip when exploring Hamburg. "Süllberg" is similar, but without stairs. Süllberg offers one of the top restaurants, which - due to its gorgeous view over the Elbe river and its fantastic food is one of the most beloved locations for weddings. Right next to the restaurant, to the bottom of the "Berg" (which means "hill") a cozy little beach offers a perfect set-up for barbecues or picnics with family and friends.
