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.
