Shopping in Hamburg
Next to sightseeing, traveling to Hamburg is a great opportunity to go shopping. The main shopping area is located in the center of the city around the Binnenalster (lake of the Alster river). Starting from Mönckebergstraße, Spitalerstraße, Jungfernstieg, or Gänsemarkt, where you’ll find popular flagship stores from various well-known brands, you can also discover luxury brands in the side roads Neuer Wall and Große Bleichen, or smaller and partly owner-managed shops within the very charming shopping malls Levantehaus, Hanse-Viertel and Galleria. Hamburg’s shopping paradise can be best described as a multifaceted combination of various stores that are actually outside, in combination with several shopping malls of different sizes, each of them presenting a unique atmosphere and an individual up to exquisite store landscape. Most of them do also include gastronomic specialties.
Thanks to the center's balanced mix of industries with more than 180 stores, the ELBE is a shopping center for the top class.
