About the property

Nature / City, big city, 4 sleeps / 3 Wohnzi., 4 terraces Only until 12. 2018!

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 the renovated Eilbekkanals, a wall-sized double glass door to one of the spacious terraces, floor and wall heaters warm in the winter and cool in the summer, more than 70 m2 terraces, from which you swim directly in the canal If you like it warm, you can enjoy the Rainfall shower in the glass Artweger complex in the Peissnitz spa. 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 desk with fax connection and fax machine also allows for professional activities, even meetings, presentations in front of a small audience are easily feasible, on request, we like to extend the seating by up to 20 chairs (with armrests). In conjunction with additional tables, this also allows private or business festivities in small groups. 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 more than 150 specialty shops, cafes and restaurants, including Aldi, REWE and Budnikowski - a Hamburg drugstore chain

There is a lockable garage for a wheelchair or bicycles right at the entrance to the Peißnitz, on the shore strip belonging to it. 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. Friends of fishing can throw their own fishing rod from the terrace. 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.

A residential property located in the middle of the city always raises the question of traffic noise: Richardstrasse has no function as a thoroughfare and has only minor vehicle traffic with almost no lorries. The Uferstraße is a bicycle lane and only available for residents. The Wagnerstrasse and the Lerchenfeld are far enough away to not be disturbed by noise pollution. Beyond the Richardstrassen bridge behind the nearest houses, a sophisticated urban development is currently under construction, and the banks of the Eilbek canal are being renovated. Opposite the Peissnitz provisional berths for the neighboring boats are set up. Construction noise can unfortunately not be excluded during normal working hours. The construction site of the sewer rehabilitation is expected to be located on the Peissnitz from January 2019 onwards. Therefore, the rental of Peissnitz is terminated at this time. But even before it can come during normal working hours to harassment by construction noise of the water construction site. The lush outer surfaces of the Peißnitz can still be enjoyed - just as big city dwellers are used to the heartbeat of a city and the typical background noise. At least our previous guests say so. In the living rooms no external noise can be heard. So perfectly does the insulation with the windows closed. Even with living room ventilation with fresh air from outside.

Sommerspaß in der Stadt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit unseren Teenagersöhnen für fünf Tage auf der Peissnitz - und es war eine perfekte Verbindung von erholsamen Ferien am Wasser und Stadturlaub. Es war heiß, so dass unsere Söhne direkt vom Boot in den Kanal sprangen und schwimmen konnten, das Boot zum Paddeln an die Alster nutzten usw.

Das Boot ist hervorragend ausgestattet, die Vermieter äußerst zuvorkommend, so dass es für uns wunderbare Tage waren.

A relaxing setting with all the modern amenities!

  • 5 of 5

The Peissnitz with all it's modern amenities provides a tranquil setting for relaxation and enjoyment just steps away from active student life, family-oriented neighborhoods, restaurants and ample shopping. In close proximity to the heart of Hamburg, you can access the city's many exciting districts through a number of easily accessed transportation modes...even canoe (there are 2 provided)! When it's time to retire you'll do so willingly to the contemporary comforts of the spacious living areas and outdoor terrace. Ducks, geese, competitive rowers and groups of school children in kayaks glide by providing the entertainment below on the water's surface as you sip on coffee in the AM or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening from the elevated deck. Once back inside through a massive glass doorway, the modern, full kitchen offers state-of-the-art appliances and does not sacrifice on size or performance given the unique setting...The Peissnitz, although very much a boat on the water, does NOT compromise! Even the master bathroom is spacious and exhibits high-performing fixtures. The only downside to this magnificent boat is just that...if you are looking for rock solid and dry land remember what you sought out: Peissnitz is a BOAT on the water. While it is remarkably stable (even in stormy weather with increased current in the canal) the boat does move albeit ever-so-slightly. Below deck moaning and groaning of the hull against the pilings could be bothersome to the light sleeper. That said this is nothing some earplugs and glass or two of red wine before bed can't cure! We were 3 colleagues on business that found the Peissnitz most convenient, comfortable, spacious and relaxing after long days spent at the Hamburg Messe (convention/expo center). If you've never spent a long weekend or weeks on end on the water, I'd recommend it! And thanks to our wonderful sure to ask about the picture album to see the boat's exciting life-cycle from beginning to present!!!

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

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

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 the vehicles of the residents or the guests of the houseboat Peissnitz can be found on the park strip of the Uferstraße directly in front of the entrance to the Peissnitz - especially in the evening and at night - in more than sufficient number. 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.
