The Fontenay


The luxury
lakeside hotel in
Germany’s largest waterfront city.

In 1816, Hamburg-based shipbroker John Fontenay acquired a unique plot of land on the beautiful shores of the Alster lake in the heart of the city. Today, it is the site of THE FONTENAY Hotel. Lakeside Luxury at its best.

THE FONTENAY is a reflection of modern Hamburg: open-minded, cosmopolitan and exceptionally welcoming. An homage to the Hanseatic city, the luxury hotel is tailor-made for the many national and international visitors who come to discover and rediscover Hamburg.

Hamburg-born star architect Jan Störmer titled his initial drawings ‘timelessly modern, modern classic’. His innovative sculptural design offers breathtaking views over the Alster from almost all 130 rooms and suites.

Experience THE FONTENAY way of life and share Hamburg's love affair with water.

Yours sincerely,

Your host Thies Sponholz
