Construction on the offices and residencies on Deichstraße began in the 17th century. Today, the old merchant’s street is the home of many fine restaurants and pubs.
Deichstraße with its restaurants and boutiques exudes typical Hanseatic flair and is only a few steps away from Rathausmarkt, right next to the historic Speicherstadt.
To stroll and enjoy
Old-established traditional restaurants characterise the Deichstraße. Among the most famous addresses are the and the Deichgraf. The neighbouring Ti Breizh, in English "House of Brittany", on the other hand, is characterised by French influences. Still relatively new in the historic street is the North Coast Coffee Roastery, which stands for the finest coffee from its own roasting.
A journey into the past
In 1842 the Great Fire raged in Hamburg and destroyed large parts of the city. The Deichstraße is one of the last remnants of historic Hamburg, along with a few other alleys. If you want to learn more about the history of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, you should visit theMuseum of Hamburg History.
