Well, the “Bergziege” (or “mountain goat” – a bus route) is known beyond Hamburg’s city and state borders. Everyone from Hamburg and Blankenese knows it anyway.
Quote from the Hamburger Abendblatt from January 26, 2012:
(…) “It winds its way through the stair quarter. To the right and left old rows of houses with sloping walls and projections, the side mirror almost touches a low-hanging balcony. Walls with dense vegetation come so close that the branches scratch over the bus windows. The vehicle wobbles over bumpy cobblestone pavement, cars parked with pinpoint precision and bollards – no hand fits between bus and bollard.
It’s a real obstacle course that bus Bergziege and its driver master together. The descent takes a few minutes, then the bus turns right into the beach path. Suddenly there is a clear view of the river Elbe, a white sandy beach and gently undulating waves. Uwe Laue (the bus driver) and his passengers chat about the weather. For people from Blankenese it is a normal ride.” (…)
Blankenese without bus route 48 is like a lighthouse without light and therefore predestined to give its name to our characteristic blend.
