The Mellin Passage is the oldest shopping center of Hamburg and a truely small but but also very fine one. The Mellin Passage is in integrated in the Venetian style built Alsterarkaden. It is the smallest "shopping center" of the Hanseatic city.
OK size matters, but...
In fact, you should not expect a true shopping center! Nevertheless guests definitely shouldn't miss it! The shopping center Mellin Passage providess little, but exklusive shops. For example the Royal Berlin Porcelain Manufactory has its dependance here. Also you can find on the shelves fine teas or even watches, pearls and jewelry, along with fine literature and exclusive travel accessories (including handbags).
And what you should know, too, if you visit the Mellin Passage: The Mellin Passage is not for bargain hunters. Here reigns the more luxurious, what does not mean, that guests who come here and just "want to look" aren't welcome!
