Shopping & Services

Hamburg not only makes the hearts of culture lovers and architecture fans beat faster, shopping enthusiasts will also get their money's worth here. The city is characterized by numerous popular shopping districts full of exclusive offers.

Between main station and Rathausmarkt

Two of Europe's most visited and best-known shopping streets stretch from Hamburg's Central Station to the Town Hall: Mönckebergstraße ("Mö") and Spitalerstraße ("Spi"). Both large department stores as well as well-known brands can be found here. An excursion to the district between the main train station and the town hall also makes for a lovely evening: in the vicinity there are several theaters, a program cinema and numerous restaurants and cafes. The popular Jungfernstieg is just a stone's throw away.

Jungfernstieg and Neuer Wall

The Jungfernstieg Boulevard is considered the "Heart of the City Center" and is characterized by a particularly exclusive shopping - in the chic Alsterhaus as well as in the venerable Alsterarkaden. From the promenade you can take a boat tour on the Alster or through the canals. This way you can quickly gain new strength for the next expedition, to the noble Hanse Viertel for example, which is considered the most traditional part of the inner city and is located just around the corner, right next to the shopping streets Neuer Wall and Große Bleichen, which are unique thanks to their well-known designer Stores and the elegant traditional shops.


Hamburg's youngest district is within walking distance of the city center and attracts visitors with its sweeping Überseeboulevard ideal for relaxed shopping. In addition to flagship stores, the modern district is also filled with many imaginative bars and a cozy tea room. A walk through the impressive HafenCity, home of the world-famous Elbphilharmonie, is well worthwhile: the district is growing and growing and growing.
