The undisputed favorite spot at the Louis C. Jacob for many guests is the Linden Terrace. Watch the ships on the Elbe, enjoy coffee and cake, or later in the evening drink a sundowner and watch the sun slowly set. Here you can experience Hamburg from its most beautiful side.

Under the lime trees
As early as 1791, the French landscape gardener Daniel Louis Jacques laid out this one terrace with a special flair. He chose linden trees because they could withstand the harsh climate of northern Germany well and are very durable. He arranged the trees in a biaxial avenue so that the crowns could form a closed canopy after some time. Today, the canopy of linden trees ensures that we can always find a shady spot on the Linden Terrace, even on hot summer days.
Food & Drinks
We serve breakfast, coffee and cake on the Linden Terrace, and are also happy to serve a sundowner or - weather permitting - fine food from the kitchen and cellar. Sit back, enjoy the fantastic view and let us spoil you with culinary delights.
In 1902, the Berlin Impressionist Max Liebermann moves to the Jacob for two months at the invitation of Alfred Lichtwark, founding director of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. He is to paint motifs of the Hanseatic city. He finds the most beautiful one right outside his room door: the Linden Terrace. One of the paintings created here is in our living hall - a highlight of German Impressionism.
Cozy lounge chairs and sofas with extra cushions, a flickering outdoor table fireplace and a few good drinks are all you need to feel really comfortable in our lounge area. This area is a bit more sheltered from the wind, but even from here you always have the incoming and outgoing ships in view.
