Alsterarkaden Shopping Street

In the heart of the town center. Between the town hall and the "Binnenalster". Truely not a real street but a must-see for every visitor.

A truely little but special Shopping "Street"

Standing in front of the town hall, looking to the north (direction "Alster") you see the columns of the Alsterarkaden (Alsterarcade). The name derives from the word "Alster" which is the name of the little inland water in Hamburg.

AlsterarkadenIn fact, the Alsterarkaden is not a real shopping street (definitely not!). It is just about 100 meters in length. But it is a beautiful spot in the heart of the City of Hamburg which has to be mentioned here. The shops themselves you will find there, mainly offer luxury goods: Jewelry, antique books, chinaware and so forth. Furthermore - in the middle of the Alsterarkaden the "Mellin Passage" ist located. The smallest "Mall" in town (some guests may love if they visit the Mellinpassage cause calling this a "Mall" is a little bit exaggerated). The Mellinpassage is a little, but very beautiful shopping center (or let us call it a histrorical spot in town).

Along the Alsterarkaden some coffee bars offer drinks and little food. Sit down there and enjoy the view on the impressive town hall and the Alster!
