Detox with design, big city vibes included. The stilwerk Strandhotel on the banks of the Elbe in Blankenese has everything you need to take a quick breather. Here you are out of the city and yet right in the middle of it all. An inspiring space for your well-being. The listed Art Nouveau villa from 1902 shines in clear white against the picturesque backdrop of the Blankenese staircase district. An urban area that is unique in Hamburg and has a Mediterranean flair with its upper-class villas and picturesque fishing houses. As a location, we offer the ideal setting for unforgettable moments, invite you to bring visions to life and welcome guests in an ambience that embodies fashion and creative inspiration.

The interior of the small boutique hotel with 12 rooms in the main building and three suites in the captain's house was curated by stilwerk: modernity, history and architectural finesse merge into a seamless whole. The color palette from dusty blue to sandy yellow is inspired by the wild surroundings, natural materials and manufacturing quality characterize the interior concept of the house. Bold details bring excitement and offer the perfect space for design-savvy travelers. The best thing about it: If you are interested in an interior piece, you can get advice directly from us or at stilwerk Hamburg. The curated rooms at the stilwerk Strandhotel Blankenese not only offer accommodation, but also an opportunity to immerse yourself in an inspiring and creative world.

Collaborating with local producers is important to us and with digital communication and other green options we want to keep the ecological shoe footprint as small as possible.

remarkable spaces for intensified experiences. based in Hamburg, surrounded by water. choose Alster or Elbe.

For more than 25 years, stilwerk has been shaping the interior world in Germany as a platform for design, art, culture and life. The credo: we curate inspiring spaces. And that’s exactly what the Hamburg brand offers with its spaces and services. The internationally unique concept skilfully brings together design destinations in Berlin, Düsseldorf and Hamburg with two boutique hotels in the Hanseatic city. The idea behind it is to make design really tangible and so the hotels become a holistic interior experience from the design cosmos. Trial living 2.0, so to speak.

The first hotel - the stilwerk Hotel Heimhude aka the Grande Dame in Sneakers - opened in 2020 and is centrally located in downtown Hamburg: an Art Nouveau villa in the middle of upper-class villas that skilfully combines the special charm of the old building with an interior collage of old and new.
The stilwerk Strandhotel Blankenese aka the mysterious white lady - is another very special place in Hamburg: not located on the Alster and in the city center, but on the Elbe and directly on the natural beach. Another old building from the early 20th century that lives on thanks to conversion. A truly remarkable place that exudes real holiday vibes in the middle of the city.
