Stairs Neighborhood Blankenese
Those who wish to experience the beauty of Hamburg's upmarket Blankenese neighborhood will need to invest a certain amount of energy. Known as the 'staircase district,' Blankenese contains a total of 4864 steps. The small, narrow lanes have a Mediterranean feel and boast a mixture of elegant turn-of-the-century villas, old fishermen's houses and modern concrete buildings. There are colorful flowers and ivy-covered walls everywhere during the summer. Hesse and Schinkel parks are located in the neighborhood, and the Römischer Garten is also worth a visit.
My friends and I came to see how the other half lived...
It was a hot day on this steep hillside neighbourhood. The houses are very nice.
You need to be wary of the old women who live here - they try to entice you into their homes under the false pretence of sandwiches and tea.
My mate, being hungry and tired, accepted such an offer against the advise of me and the others. He went inside, 2 minutes later we heard clattering and his scream... then we heard the voice of the old lady..
'Das Meiz! -Eets like a Bratvurst!'
