Hamburg is Germany’s wealthiest city – as those who visit the neighbourhoods of Altstadt and Neustadt will notice straight away. The streets of Hamburg’s prominent shopping district are lined with elegant department stores and upscale boutiques. Admire the sparkling jewellery, taste some caviar or try on a new suit.
The centre of Hamburg is divided into 2 parts with the Rathaus (town hall) as the central point. Altstadt encompasses the eastern part up to the Hauptbahnhof (central train station) and Neustadt lies between the western quays of the Binnenalster and the Hamburg State Opera. Mönckebergstraße and Spitalerstraße are Hamburg’s 2 major busy shopping streets where you will find many large chain stores. For more exclusive fashion, head to Neuer Wall and Große Bleichen and browse the luxury designer labels.
