Ottensen: between the city, the Elbe and the Volkspark
The Schanzenstern-Altona is located in the middle of Ottensen, in Altona - one of the most vibrant quarters in Hamburg. Altona station is five minutes' walk from the Schanzenstern. Many of the Deutsche Bahn's long-distance trains arrive directly at Altona station, and it can also be reached by the local trains of the S-Bahn (Hamburg's central station, the Hauptbahnhof, is approximately 11 minutes away).

A working-class area in former times, Ottensen offers its own particular flair to both inhabitants and visitors: its streets and squares are characterised by a multitude of cafés and restaurants, and a multi-cultural atmosphere. Whether they want to go shopping or bar-hopping in Ottensen, or to stroll down to the banks of the Elbe, with its spectacular sunset view across the harbour, our guests profit from the central location.
