About this houseboat

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.

In Hamburg there is a housing shortage and the misappropriation of housing for tourism purposes is being pursued. In order to avoid fines for holidaymakers and landlords, the rental must be approved for each apartment and their proof a housing protection number will be awarded. Only with such a number may an apartment be rented as an apartment during an approved period. The Peissnitz, however, is a houseboat that is not subject to the Hamburg Housing Protection Act. It needs no housing protection number and does not lead either. Your stay is therefore completely legal, throughout the year, the Peissnitz may be rented. However, the tourism tax (bed tax) demanded in Hamburg is levied by all our overnight guests and is already included in our prices.

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 houseboats are set up, soon there will be two other houseboats. Even construction noise can not be excluded during normal working hours. The construction site of the sewer rehabilitation is expected to be located directly on the Peissnitz from January 2020. 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.

    Great rental

    The property is great for a group of friends or family, is close to shops, and only a short ride away from the centre. The owners were friendly.

    I made a mistake in the booking process but the boat owner stepped in and we made it work. Henning was a pleasure to deal with. 5 adult males made the space work and even with 18 of us for dinner one night. The boat worked well. It was well stocked with linens, towels, cleaning supplies, and spices which I didn't expect but they added to the enjoyment of the Peissnitz. We traveled around Hamburg by taxi and public transportation which both worked well. All five of us enjoyed the City and our accommodations. We would return to Houseboot Peissnitz.

    Wunderschönes Hausboot

    Der Empfang der Familie Bossow war sehr freundlich und nach eine kurze Einweisung und Rundgang wurde uns den Schlüssel übergeben. Das Hausboot machte ein noch besseren Eindruck als auf die Bilder! Sauberkeit war top und zudem war an alles gedacht Küchenutensilien in alle Varianten, Handtücher ausreichend für 7 Personen, Bettwäsche auf Ersatz, usw.. Vielen Dank für den tollen und besonderen Aufenthalt! Wir kommen nochmal wieder!

    Wunderschöne Unterkuft mit beeidruckender Historie

    Es war ein wunderschönes Wochenende auf dem Boot und wir konnten uns quasi über nix beschweren. Es war alles da, was man brauchte - sogar mehr - und es war sehr ordentlich und sauber. Der Gastgeber hat uns persönlich empfangen und sich die Zeit genommen uns alles zu zeigen. Auch bei der Abreise wurden wir persönlich verabschiedet! Die Historie des Hausboots, die viele Energie die dort hineingesteckt wurde und die individuelle Note war beeidruckend! Wäre es bald möglich, würden wir sehr gerne mal einen längeren Aufenthalt dort planen.

    Traumhafte Location in bester Lage

    Die s-tolze Peissnitz ist ein Traum und ihre Besitzer sehr nette und sehr zuvorkommende Gastgeber. Ob beim Buchen oder Ein-und Auschecken, ob bei Sonderwünschen oder einer von uns verursachten Strom-Panne: Alles wurde mit großer Freundlichkeit, Gründlichkeit und Humor fix geregelt. Dankeschön an die Bossows und ihre ebenso nette Mitarbeiterin! Die warme und maritime Atmosphäre in, auf und um diese sehr geschmackvoll und best ausgestattete Perle, hat uns vom ersten Moment an begeistert. Wir wurden von Hamburg mit angenehmen Oktoberwetter verwöhnt, sodass wir die wunderbar geräumige und hübsch möblierte Terasse mit herrlichem Blick auf den Eilbek-Kanal ebenso genießen konnten wie die einladenden und sehr kuscheligen Wohnbereiche. Die mit allem perfekt ausgestattete Küche ist gut durchdacht in den Wohnbereich integriert und so lassen sich ganz wunderbar gemeinsam die Mahlzeiten bereiten. Die Schlafplätze sind sehr bequem und gemütlich, angenehm frische Bettwäsche wird schönerweise gestellt und der Blick auf die vorbeischaukelnden Entchen und Schwäne ist natürlich unbezahlbar. Kleiner Tipp: Vorher, wie wir es auch taten, schonmal den Grundriss studieren, da die Schlafplätze alle hübsch, aber natürlich von sehr unterschiedlichem Zuschnitt sind. Das Bad- von drei Seiten zugänglich- ist sehr ansprechend und komfortabel ausgestattet; praktischerweise ist sogar eine Waschmaschine und ein Trockner vor Ort. Auch sehr angenehm, dass die Peissnitz über ein weiteres Gäste-WC verfügt. Mit 7 Schlaf-Gästen und 4 weiteren Besuchs-Gästen war das eine kleine, aber feine Nebensache. Neben der Peissnitz hat uns das beeindruckende Hamburg sehr viel Spass gemacht und es war äußerst angenehm, dass die U-Bahn, ebenso wie sehr umfassende Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Shopping Mall Hamburger Meile) in wenigen Fuss-Minuten erreichbar sind. Und selbst einen Parkplatz zu finden, war sehr unkompliziert. Unsere schöne Zeit in Hamburg war derart erfüllt, dass wir zu unserem Bedauern nicht einmal dazu gekommen sind, das lustige Tretboot oder das Kanu zu nutzen. Dabei hätte es wirklich gar keinen weiteren Grund gebraucht, um von Herzen gerne wiederzukommen!
