Around the Gänsemarkt in Hamburg there are many shopping malls with boutiques, restaurants and cafés. Everybody will find something here.

The Gänsemarkt is a public square in Hamburg's Neustadt district which invites visitors to shop and spend some time. Several shopping streets open into this three-sided square. The two-storey Gänsemarkt Passage forms a link to the part of the colonnades near to the Alster and is the home to retail stores, shops and gastronomy.Then there's Gerhofstrasse where the range of young fashion immediately catches your eye.

Gänsemarkt itself hosts appealing shops as well as a diverse range of restaurants and cafés. It has a diverse history: Leased out as early as 1373, it was not built on until after 1600 - and moreover with a lime storage house for the construction of fortifications. Market rights never existed, but it is thought that geese gathered here - and were then driven to Dammtor.

Known as Gänsemarkt (goose market) since 1709, some trace the name back to former land owner Gosen. The bakery at number 44 has been occupied continuously since 1650. Before you continue your tour, you should also look at the Banana Hall of the tax authorities on Gänsemarkt.
