Location & Arrival

Our visitors often choose the picturesque route along the shores of the Alster. You could also take the Alster steam boat and alight at “Alte Rabenstrasse”. There are ample parking spaces in the hotel garage (€35 per car/per day), or alternatively, we are very happy to pick you up from the airport or the train station. To book a fee-based limousine transfer kindly contact our concierge at concierge@thefontenay.com.
