It is always a pleasure to walk the small pavements in the heart of Blankenese down to the Elbe. Highly recommended for great river views watching the cruise liners and cargo ships go by.

Lovely villas to look at and a few cafes along the way to the beach. It is mostly blocked off from traffic, so the area is very pedestrian-friendly.

Nice getaway from the city for half a day. Travelling with the S-train to Blankenese (30 min) and then walking down on the various steps to the Elbe. You might be seeing huge cargo boats on their way to the sea.
