City Center Shopping (Self Guided), Hamburg

No matter what town or city you are visiting, there comes a time when you will want to tour the shops to mingle with locals, to get into the true atmosphere of the city and, of course to pick up a bargain! Hamburg has probably the best shopping area in Europe: The Mönkebergstraße is the best place for traditional stores, both large and small. The architecture is interesting, as many of the department stores are housed in former foreign trading posts.

From the past, step into the future in the ultra-modern Europa Passage, a five storey shopping center overlooking the Alster River. You will find everything and anything here from top-of-the-range computer equipment to fresh-cut flowers. The Neuer Wall is famous for sumptuous fashion accessories, top European brands and beautiful furniture. Why not pamper yourself a little?

On Jungfernstieg you will find the large Nivea-Hauss store and spa, where you can buy make-up and body lotions and enjoy a relaxing massage or a facial beauty treatment at affordable prices. Afterwards you can stroll along this lovely waterfront boulevard which also boasts several very good shoe stores. You can also enjoy a drink or a meal in one of the many restaurants overlooking the lake and watch the ferry-boats go by.
