The PropertySophienpalais

Monumental architecture with a modern interior: Sophienpalais offers contemporary living comfort behind an impressive facade in one of Hamburg’s most sought-after residential areas. Havestehude, set next to the leafy shores of the Außenalster, the largest lake in Hamburg, is traditionally one of Hamburg’s most elegant districts. Magnificent villas and splendid town houses in styles ranging from Historicism and Art Nouveau shape the neighborhood. The history of Hamburg’s former garrison headquarters, now the Sophienpalais, extends back to the mid-19th century. The architects have gut renovated this monumental building in close coordination with Hamburg’s heritage authorities to create an exclusive urban quarter with modern apartments, all surrounded by a park-like garden. Even the reception lobby radiates Hanseatic elegance. Hamburg-born design icon Karl Lagerfeld was in charge of the design. His signature style is evident throughout the club lounge, which serves as a retreat for all residents – as does the in-house private spa. The garden, adorned with distinctive objets d’art, the in-house wine cellar in the former vault and the private path directly to the Außenalster can all be enjoyed by the residents of Sophienpalais – regardless of whether they have chosen a high-quality, two-room apartment or one of the impressive Skydeck units. The appointments are also of high quality throughout: oak parquet flooring in all rooms (except the kitchen), underfloor heating and doors adapted to the generous room heights are only selected elements of the meticulous design. The ultra-modern security concept and comprehensive concierge services underscore the carefree attitude to life of the residents and turn Sophienpalais into a comfortable city quarter clad in a historic guise.

Sophienpalais in Hamburg-Harvestehude

Hamburg-Harvestehude Sophienpalais

Idyllic, green, right on the water, but still very close to the center of Hamburg – the success story of the Harvesterhude district is inseparable from its locational advantages. Since the middle of the 19th century, upper middle-class families and Hanseatic merchants have chosen to settle here. Impressive villas on large, park-like plots and sophisticated town houses bear witness to this past, still evident today. The district has maintained its green character, even as the metropolis around it has grown. Several parks and the banks of the Alster are ideal areas for sports and walks. The waters of the Außenalster form a romantic backdrop – in summer, the deep blue waters are lined with sailing and rowing boats from neighboring clubs.
Along with the picturesque atmosphere in the streets, the district offers everything that modern city dwellers want: A variety of restaurants including award-winning cuisine, numerous independent shops and a popular weekly market. And if the district does become too crowded, many destinations are within easy reach: In just under 30 minutes you can walk to the pulsating Jungerfernsteg and Hafencity is less than five kilometers away. From here, the international airport is easily reached by taxi in 20 minutes, even during the day, and the ICE train station is barely a quarter of an hour’s taxi ride away.
