Deichstraße

Historic Hamburg

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.

Hamburg has many large churches - but only one "Michel": On its platform 106 metres high, there is a fabulous (and breezy) view of Hamburg, the port and the surrounding countryside - one that should not be missed!
