Zum Alten Lotsenhaus

Classic Hamburgish.

The historic fish restaurant Altes Lotsenhaus serves almost exclusively Hamburg specialities. Afterwards you can relax in the beach bar with a view of the Elbe River.

Not only traditional fish dishes of Hamburg, but also a genuine piece of cultural property is offered to visitors of the Altes Lotsenhaus (meaning "old pilot house").

History of the house

The restaurant has existed for over 200 years and was originally a clubhouse for the Pilot Brotherhood, which had set itself the task of voluntarily rescuing unfortunate Elbe pilots. Due to its high popularity as a meeting point, it was then transformed into a restaurant at the beginning of the 19th century. After a renovation the old pilot house shines since then with styleful wood furnishing in new gloss, but the tradition of the good north German kitchen is duly kept.

And now?

Today the Alte Lotsenhaus consists of a large restaurant as well as Dock 13, a cosily furnished beach bar and lounge directly on the Elbe. You can relax here at noon or in the evening on comfortable upholstered seats. The Old Pilot House mainly serves specialities of the Hanseatic city, such as Hamburg panfish with fried fillets of Norwegian salmon and cod in a light white wine Dijon mustard sauce, or the North Sea plaice "Övelgönne" with fresh Büsumer shrimps and crustacean sauce.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Blankenese & Elbe outskirts

The former fishing and seamen's village of Blankenese is situated directly on the Elbe. It is the perfect starting point for hopping on a sailing boat or on the Elbe ferry, or for taking long walks along the shore. Another highlight is a visit to the Treppenviertel (German for staircase quartier) with a spectacular view of the lighthouse and the Falkenstein shore.
