The Colonnades radiate Mediterranean flair and stylish individuality in Hamburg city centre. Along the historic street, impressive worlds of experience and enjoyment open up to visitors.

The colonnades connect Jungfernstieg with the Esplanade and Stephansplatz. Architectural features and high-quality shops characterise the image of the listed pedestrian zone dating from 1877.

Splendid boulevard

Individual fashion, exciting art and unadulterated worlds of pleasure stretch along the colonnades. The local shops, cafés and restaurants shine with high quality and originality. In summer, the lively terraces characterise the image of the shopping street and remind us of the cosiness of mediterranean places. Furthermore: four times a year the popular and much visited antique market takes place on Sundays.

Historic pedestrian zone

Also impressive: the house facades that adorn the colonnades. The stately multi-storey houses built around 1880 have varied facades with lots of building decoration. The arcade on the eastern side of the street provides a Venetian flair.

The colonnades invite you to stroll and feel good.
