Four reasons to visit the new luxury hall at Alsterhaus

Towards the end of 2016, Hamburg’s famous department store Alsterhaus unveiled a new luxury hall. Here are four reasons why it should be on your list of places to visit in Hamburg

1. The atrium has a completely new look which is nothing short of magnificent. It marks the first chapter in a makeover of the entire shop by architect studio Kleihues & Kleihues, so keep an eye out for further changes in the near future. 

2. Step into the atrium and you are in a place of living history. Alsterhaus first opened its doors in 1912 and the introduction of the luxury hall is a celebration of the department store’s heritage as well as a step forward. It is styled as a neoclassical structure with maritime notes that evoke the city’s Hanseatic history. The look consolidates the department store’s status as a modern global luxury destination.

3. This is the place for a high-end shopping experience. The well-appointed hall presents a selection of superb bags, accessories, watches and jewellery as well as gifts from the world’s most prestigious luxury labels; Céline, Valentino and Bucherer are just some of the brands available here. Tasty treats from London’s Fortnum & Mason add to the offering.

4. Set on the historic promenade of Jungfernstieg, Alsterhaus is at the heart of one of Hamburg’s must-visit shopping quarters. With plenty of other stores in the neighbourhood, we suggest starting your shopping at Alsterhaus and making a day of it.

Alsterhaus, Jungfernstieg 16-20, 20354 Hamburg, +49 (0)40 359010
