Shopping in Hamburg
As to be expected from Germany’s second largest city, shopping in the city of Hamburg will dazzle everyone from bargain hunters to label addicts. From large chain stores and modern shopping malls to upscale boutiques or antique fairs, this city has it all in abundance.
High-end fashion boutiques and mallsStarting with high-end fashion, the waterfront Jungfernstieg shopping district is an area brimming with small, exclusive boutiques located within 11 shopping arcades. This is also a lovely area to stroll around with a coffee and take in the lakeside view of the Alster. International department stores stock many famous brand names and can be found nearby at Spitalerstrasse and Monckebergstrasse.
The city has several shopping malls conveniently offering everything under one roof. Europa Passage is not just an architectural feat with its impressive arches dominating the internal structure. Over 120 stores are spread over five stories retailing everything from fashion, hobby and interior, jewelry, beauty products, shoes and much more. When you feel it is time to stop for a break, there is a good choice of bakeries, cafes and restaurants to choose from. This is just one of the many malls to choose from across the city.
Something for the bargain hunterIf bargain hunting excites you, you will be pleased to know there are several antique and flea markets spread around the city that will satisfy the curiosity of both the ardent shopper and the souvenir hunter. The Marktstrasse is a must for shoppers looking to find second-hand bargains and the popular Fish Market has stalls stocking everything from flowers to clothing.
The Radisson Blu Hotel in Hamburg offers a convenient location in the city’s downtown area, close to the main shopping districts, malls and markets. After a session of serious retail therapy, drop your purchases off at the modern hotel and unwind in one of the two superb on-site restaurants. Alternatively, enjoy a rejuvenating massage at the hotel's stylish fitness center and spa.
