Hamburger Original
Do you prefer to stay out of context?



TORTUE features 128 rooms and suites, and you as the guest. Only the future knows what will happen in the meantime. Or when it happens. Our house awaits the moment when the myth finds its form.


Leave your imprint. You decide which era by defining, first and foremost, the present. You are the muse for TORTUE’s personal and common spaces. You are the hotel’s reason, as well as its (im)passionate unreason. 


It’s about the passion of making milestones. From days long gone to just the other night, and all the magical times in between. All leading up to a house that breathes love in even the smallest details.


We understand your personal grammar. Which indulgence is the subject? Which is the object? Where and when do expressions turn into gestures, and gestures into fulfillment?


At TORTUE, every event is familiar with all of our 128 rooms and suites. And with you.

Strolling between Stadthausbrücke, Große Bleichen and Neuer Wall you will find yourself en passant in the middle of Hamburg's history, to which the TORTUE owes its name:


When Hamburg, oh là là, was a department of Paris between 1806 and 1814, none other than Napoléon stayed in the historic quarter. He and his companions not only brought the Hamburgers the inspiration for the French roll, not only Chaussees, Bellevues and Palais, but also an idea of that world-famous savoir-vivre. Translated into today, this is, above all, about the delightful art of living of never hurrying! And which living creature is extraordi-narily good at this?


Et voilà! The turtle - French la tortue. TORTUE reminds us to take our time. Especially when we don't have any. Because haste and pleasure are mutually exclusive. Only in idleness and relaxation are the antennas for the beautiful on reception. And at around 200 m/h, you can take a formidable stroll through the TORTUE and explore what this place is all about!
