Hamburg-Blankenese in Northern Germany is located on the right bank of the Elbe river. It’s one of Europe’s most affluent neighborhoods, with Hamburg being one of Europe’s richest cities. Blankenese has a long history as a fishing village. In 1060, Archbishop Adalbert of Bremen built a provost’s residence at the site of an older settlement on the hill. Later the counts of Holstein built a castle. The stunning river views have resulted in highly desirable properties and expensive real estate prices. The hillside residences boast many tiny, pedestrian-only streets and 4,864 stairs. The Strandweg is home to the Strand Hotel, built in 1902, plus little cafes and restaurants. There are two lighthouses, a garden, a doll museum, and many parks and walking trails.

Das Internationale Maritime Museum in Hamburg, Northern Germany,…

Das Internationale Maritime Museum in Hamburg, Northern Germany, houses a large collection of model ships, uniforms, and maritime art, amounting to over 40,000 items and more than 1 million photographs. The collection was started in 1934 by Peter Tamm—former chairman of the board of the Axel Springer Publishing House—when he was 6 years old and his mother gave him his first model ship. Located in the Speicherstadt warehouse district of Hamburg‘s harbor, the building was given to the foundation for 99 years of free lease by the senate of Hamburg. Official website:
