10 Fontenay

In the 19th century, John Fontenay chose the lakeside metropolis Hamburg to establish his shipping business. He fell in love with the most picturesque waterfront location on the southwestern shore of the Alster lake. In 1816, Fontenay acquired this most distinguished plot in the heart of the city - the location of today's THE FONTENAY hotel development. This quiet, sophisticated address, located at 10 Fontenay, is directly on the Alster Wanderweg – a dedicated hiking trail circling the city – and is within walking distance to Hamburg's most fashionable neighbourhoods, main shopping areas and the new HafenCity – Harbour City.
