Cremon, Deichstrasse, Peterstrasse, Bäckerbreitergang, Reimerstwiete: Stroll through Hamburg's historic lanes!
Cremon – eponymous street of "Cremon" Island: There were warehouses and residential buildings here with a canal and street frontage so that merchandise could be transported back and forth via water and land. The last remaining warehouse stands at house numbers 33 - 36.
In contrast, numbers 49 - 58 of Bäckerbreitergang form a continuous row of simple, restored half-timbered houses from the 18th/19th century, and they are characteristic of this residential district.
The office and residential buildings of Deichstrasse were built from as early as the 17th century – an old merchants' street that today houses numerous excellent restaurants and pubs.
The meticulously detailed reconstruction of the old Hamburg townhouses of the residential area of Peterstrasse/Neanderstrasse/Hütten is worth a visit – of particular note is the baroque Beylingstift (no. 35 - 39) with the Johannes Brahms Museum and the Telemann Museum, which enjoy great popularity with music lovers throughout the world. Peterstrasse has even served as a backdrop on many occasions for cinema films and advertising.
The smaller, restored half-timbered warehouses at nos. 17 - 21 Reimers-Twiete. from the 2nd half of the 18th century represent a characteristic street-scape of many old residential districts: It joined two main streets on "Cremon" Island, which had been a place of settlement since the 13th century.
