"Kontor" in 21436 Marschacht, Elbuferstraße 4 a, for up to 2 persons The old potato Kontor Since the early 1930's the Kontor was here on the dike and trading center for the domestic potatoes. What they did not sell directly to customers from here was shipped across the Elbe to the marketplaces of the Port of Hamburg. The old operators were busy trading people. So the office quickly became too small. Until the early 60s, it was still used as a trading center. Later, they relocated to neighboring Schleswig-Holstein. Even today, the family delivers potatoes from there, the "heath pearl" by forwarding to the entire republic. What remained is the old office.

Even today, the family delivers potatoes from there, the "heath pearl" by forwarding to the entire republic. What remained is the old office. Premises that were almost forgotten were partially buried. Over one hundred years had passed since the construction of the office, when we decided to clear the premises and restore them. Mysterious walled-up parts of the wall tell only in part the changing story. Everywhere you will find little hints. At that time the office was still directly on the Elbe. The new dike was only in the late 90s to protect against storm surges, melt flood or ice offset. Until then, it was quite possible in winter floods that had to be removed from the ice floes on the Elbe in front of the door to gain access. At times, the office was no longer accessible due to high water of dry feet. The Elbe determined life here. Be enchanted by the quiet whispering of the stories. Listen to rolling potatoes that tumble drumming into the pan. Hear how puffing double-centner sacks are packed. Moments of bustle, of commerce and gossip, the smell of heavy cigars or the one or other "Lütt un Lütt" after completed day's work. In this spirit, we wish you a wonderful stay in the old potato-Kontor Your team of elbe-ferien.eu Daily bookings possible, Barbecues in the vine arbor possible, Separate entrances, Time independent arrival by access code, Non smoking apartment, free parking at the house.

About the neighbourhood
You will find us in Tespe and Marschacht, two tranquil villages right on the Elbe, just outside the city of Hamburg. The vibrant life of Hamburg's HafenCity can be reached by car in around 20 minutes. Wanderlust included. 20 km southeast is the historic Salzstadt Lüneburg with its small, winding medieval streets. The Elbe has always shaped the old trade routes. And on the edge of the biosphere reserve "Elbtalauen" nature comes to its full splendor.
Getting around
