The Fontenay set to open in Hamburg in October

The beautiful waterfront city of Hamburg will gain a new architectural landmark later this year when the 131-room luxury hotel, The Fontenay, opens its doors to guests on October 15th.

Considered to be Germany’s most anticipated luxury hotel opening this year, The Fontenay will be located directly on the banks of Lake Alster.

The property will offer a unique sculptural design resembling three interlocking circles, creating views of the lake and the downtown cityscape from most of the hotel’s rooms and suites, as well as its rooftop bar & terrace, gourmet restaurant, swimming pool and spa.
