Location

Overlooking the river at Falkensteiner Elbufer, the Sven-Simon-Park, inaugurated in 1982, is a public park filled with a rich and splendid ensemble of trees and laced with tranquil paths. The Landhaus built by Karl Schneider stands in the grounds of the park.

Architecture

Standing high above the shore of the river Elbe is Hamburg’s most impressive lodge from the 1920s. The white villa built in the style of New Objective Architecture by Karl Schneider in 1923 is one of Hamburg’s outstanding architectural treasures.

Museum

The Puppenmuseum Falkenstein presents not only a nostalgic miniature world made of lace, velvet and silk but also numerous historical and cultural aspects of Germany’s middle classes from the late 18th century up until the 1950s.

  • Unsere Busverbindung der Linien 189 und 286
    Aufgrund einer langfristigen Baumaßnahme im Tinsdaler Kirchenweg muss die Linie 189 eine Umleitung fahren: daher kann die Haltestelle Tinsdaler Kirchenweg für mehrere Monate nicht bedient werden.
    Die nächste Haltestelle der Linie 189 ist Wittenbergener Weg – leider ist der Weg zum Puppenmuseum 1000m länger und beträgt somit etwa 2000m.
    Die Busverbindung der Linie 286 zur Haltestelle Falkenstein ist von den Baumaßnahmen nicht betroffen, verkehrt jedoch nur alle 30 Minuten.

  • Villa Michaelsen by Karl Schneider
    Its origins and perception from 1923 to 1933



    Built in 1923/24, the Landhaus am Falkenstein villa on the banks of the Elbe proved emblematic for a new development in architecture. The clarity of the multiple composition and its harmonious correspondence with nature soon brought the building international acclaim. As early as 1925, Gropius presented this exceptional villa in the first volume of his pioneering series of Bauhaus books. Along with the Chilehaus it was to become Hamburg’s most publicised building of the 20th century.

    Special exhibition from 12 May to 21 July 2019
