The Fontenay



Architecturally stunning, the Fontenay is a reflection of modern Hamburg – cosmopolitan and welcoming. The hotel’s fascinating architecture mirrors the fluid lines of the lake and surrounding parkland while creating the perfect balance between nature and urbanity. Located on the beautiful and tranquil banks of Lake Alster in the heart of Hamburg, this hotel is a true modern classic. The light-flooded Lakeside Restaurant on the roof of the hotel overlooks the Alster lake and is led by Michelin-star-studded Swiss cook Cornelius Speinle. The Fontenay Bar, John’s Restaurant on the first floor and the Atrium Lounge also meet only the highest standards. The exquisite Fontenay Spa on the rooftop with an indoor-outdoor infinity pool and a Finnish sauna offers a complete and indulgent experience. 


The hotel boasts a beautiful location on the shores of Hamburg’s scenic Alster Lake in the affluent Rothenbaum district. Hamburg Dammtor is the nearest railway station, only 10 minutes by foot; if arriving into Hamburg airport, the drive to the hotel takes less than 30 minutes. The city centre, including the shops along Neuer Wall, the Kunsthalle and the Bucerius Kunstforum museums, is a 15-minute walk from the hotel.
