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.

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.
