About the property

Nature / City, city, 4 bedroom / 3 living rooms, 4 terraces Naturbad

One of the 10 winners of a houseboat - architectural competition of the city of Hamburg is the Peissnitz: A historic barge according to modern standards converted to high-class accommodation. A floating detached house in the middle of the city, with fixed inlet water, sewage, electricity and media. With lush windows overlooking the nature of Eilbek canal, a wall-sized double glass door to the spacious terraces, floor and wall heating the toasty warm in winter and cool in summer, more than 70 m2 of terraces, from which you can directly swim in the channel who it may warmer enjoys the Rainfall shower in the glass Artweger plant in the spa Peissnitz. Overall, sleeps 8 in 4 rooms offer variations for the night: The cozy bunk bed in the cabin with 2 children or Adults beds each with its own porthole and fresh air, the bedroom with a 160 cm wide box spring bed and 125 cm TV, library with sofa bed which can be extracted (with slats) for two to 140 cm width, the salon with a second 125 cm TV whose sofa bed can be extended to 140 cm. Even in the kitchen could anyone still resting on the couch.

On the Peissnitz there fast VDSL Internet, more than 100 television programs on both 125cm TVs that can also be used for the internet, and telephone with free national calls (landline and mobile networks). You can call there can, of course, about the Hamburger landline number or a mailbox discuss your needs. A work desk with fax and fax machine can also professional activities, even meetings, presentations to small audiences are easy to carry out, as well as private or business festivities in a small circle. Further equipment requirements (eg. As Screen, projector, overhead projector, printer, etc., we will gladly try to comply).

For shopping, no car is needed. Two modern supermarkets offer 800 meters in Holstein Kamp a complete range of daily food. Exotic foods can be found in the corresponding distance in the numerous small international specialty shops Wandsbeker Chaussee. This also only 500 meters away shopping center Hamburger Meile was modernized for more than 200 million euros and transformed. With a total length of approximately 600 meters, it is one of the longest and most beautiful shopping malls throughout Europe. The center has over 150 specialty shops, cafes and restaurants.

Directly on access to Peißnitz, on the belonging to their shoreline, there is a lockable garage for a wheelchair or bicycle. Right next to the 100-year-old investor the Alsterdampfer was exposed again and can accommodate a small patio with views of the canal and the Peißnitz.

In less than 300 meters away there are two stations of the Hamburg 'StadtRAD-Systems'- where you can borrow register once for a small fee or even free bicycles and return one of the other numerous stations in Hamburg again.

Sports activities can be taken directly from the Peißnitz from several forms of attack. Fishing enthusiasts can eject from the terrace of the Angel. Also the water sportsmen have not: At the rear of the Peißnitz is their own football Mooring for cars (max 6 m long.) To exercise all forms of permissible in Hamburg water sports. From here you can use the two canoes that you can also rent, paddle, row or even fix your own, brought Segeljolle the Alster. According to friends of jogging can start right at the Peißnitz, it is still at a very popular jogging circuit running along the Eilbek channel.

In a gelegenem middle of the city residential object there is always the question of traffic noise: The Richard Street no function as a thoroughfare and has little vehicle traffic with almost no vehicles on. The coastal road is bicycle road and released only for residents. The Wagner Street and the Lerchenfeld are far enough away so as not to be disturbed by noise pollution. Beyond the Richard Street bridge behind the nearest houses currently being built a sophisticated city relocation, also the bank wall of Eilbek canal is rehabilitated in 500-1000m distance. Construction noise is therefore not completely rule out - as it is when Eilbekkanal a residential area respects the City of Hamburg on a strict observances given noise limits. The lush outer surfaces of Peißnitz can therefore be used - just the way city dwellers are accustomed to the heartbeat of a city and the typical background noise. In the living room is hardly a sound to be heard outside. So perfectly does the insulation with the windows closed. Even with living room ventilation with fresh air from outside.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay in Hamburg on the boat Peissnitz! 3 generations on Holliday and there was room for everyone to relax and enjoy. To sit outside a warm evening when the youngest were put to sleep and drink a good cup of coffee. Thank you for the warm welcome and the best service. Hope to get the chance to do it again.

Best regards Guldbrandt / Kibangula

Eine kleine Oase in der Stadt

Wir waren insgesamt sehr zufrieden mit der Unterkunft. Es war sehr schön, sauber, trocken und warm. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Eine kleine Oase mitten in der Stadt.

Wir haben die Peissnitz für ein Familientreffen an einem Wochenende genutzt. Das Schiff ist ein Traum und wir haben alle unseren Aufenthalt genossen, er war jeden Cent wert! Der Rund-um-Wohlfühlservice (frische Blumen, frisches Obst, Grundausstattung an Lebensmitteln, ....., sowie ein blitzblankes Hausboot mit ausreichendem Geschirr und Wäsche) der Familie Bossow und besonders die Betreuung von der "Hausbootverwalterin" gehen über das übliche Maß einer Ferienwohnung hinaus. Vielen Dank!

Traumhaft schöne Tage auf der Preissnitz

  • 5 of 5

Liebe Familie Bossow,

wie wir bereits ins Gästebuch geschrieben haben

waren die beiden Tage auf der von Ihnen mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail hergerichteten Preissnitz sehr genossen. Wir werden sicher noch einmal wieder kommen.

Falls man überhaupt etwas verbessern könnte wäre es vielleicht ein Fernseher oben im Wohnbereich.

Liebe Grüße Birgit & Harry Hofmann

Hamburg und Wasser gehören zusammen

  • 5 of 5

Wenn man sich einmal etwas besonderes gönnen möchte, gehört im Rahmen eines Hamburgbesuchs der Aufenthalt auf der Peißnitz dazu.

Das Hausboot ist hervorragend ausgestattet und idealer Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Stadt und Umgebung.

Das Auto kann man ruhig vergessen. Mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln bzw. dem Fahrrad kann man sich gut fortbewegen. Für Sportler: Dir Laufstrecke beginnt am Anleger.

Die Bootseigner lassen nichts unversucht, den Stadturlaub schön werden zu lassen. Dafür nochmals besten Dank.

5 Sterne mit Auszeichnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 5 Gastronomen aus dem Saarland wegen der Internorga in Hamburg. Da wir die Internorga seit 8 Jahren besuchen hatten wir schon viele verschiedene Unterkünfte. Wir haben allerdings noch nie soviel Zeit außerhalb der Messe in unserer Unterkunft verbracht wie dieses Jahr auf der wunderschönen Peissnitz. Großzügig und liebevoll eingerichtet und sehr nette Vermieter. Ein Hausboot auf dem man sich direkt wohl fühlt und das nichts vermissen läßt. Wir werden auf jeden Fall auf die Peissnitz zurückkehren und freuen uns jetzt schon auf ein Wiedersehen.

Although the Peißnitz seems to rest undisturbed nature on the water, it has excellent public transport links. The next overhead railway station is the Hamburger Strasse (U3) and is 500 meters away. Alternatively, the station Mundsburg (U3) can be used in 600 meters. Just as far as the stop is Wartenau (U1), while the subway Knight Street (U1) has to go 700 meters. From Friedrich Berg S-Bahn station (5 stops from the airport) is reacting 1,4 km through the Eilbektal to Peissnitz, main train station is 4 Km.

The Peißnitz is just a few hundred meters from the intersection of State Road 5 and 75 and is here about to reach quickly by car from other urban areas. Outside of this succeeds just as easy from the southern highways over the Elbe bridges or coming from the east over the 1.5 miles away motorway junction Hamburg-Horn. Free parking for vehicles of residents can be found on the parking strip of shore road just before the entrance to Peißnitz - especially in the evening and at night - in more than sufficient numbers. Mornings are on weekdays parking just in the immediate vicinity for a vocational school.

In each case less than 300 meters away, there are two Fahrradentleihstationen StadtRAD, Hamburg Leihfahrradsystem. For a small fee, the first few minutes even for free, you can rent bicycles and re-emit at many stations within the City after a single registration. For registration, which can be done on the road at the machine, you only need a bank card or credit card.

Wie begrüssen Sie als Gäste auf unserem Hausboot. Auf dem Wasser ist manches etwas anders. Die Peissnitz kann sich etwas bewegen und dabei auch Geräusche entstehen. Keine Angst: Sie schaukelt nicht - niemand wird seekrank. Es können aber Gegenstände ins Wasser fallen - auch der Hausschlüssel! Das darf aber nicht passieren. Es darf nichts, auch keine Zigarettenasche, in das Wasser geworfen werden.
