In the Levantehaus you will find exquisite shops from cafés to fashion, from sweet-smelling bakeries to gift shops.

Towards the sunrise - this is the meaning of the word "levante". Built in 1911/1912 by Franz Bach as a Kontorhaus, the first major tenant of today's shopping arcade, the german Levante shipping company, has given its name to the building. Therefore the sun serves as a trademark and a sun symbol decorates the entrance of the brick house. To this day, the Levantehaus in Hamburg stands for constant change in the city.
This atmosphere is complemented by exquisite shops of all kinds, from cafés to fashion, from fragrant bakeries to gift shops, leaving nothing to be desired. Well-known brands such as Marc O'Polo, Massimo Dutti or Kiehl's attract customers with their offers. At Leila Olbrich you will find custom-made shoes, goldsmith H. C. Kay may design your individual jewellery, and in the Swatch-Shop you can - as you already guessed - buy watches.
And the Steiff Gallery has something very special in store for you: The famous stuffed animals are a hit with young visitors. Via an entrance in the Levantehaus you can also reach the Park Hyatt Hotel, where you can enjoy excellent creations from the house's kitchen in the Apples Restaurant & Bar. After a short break at the Mönckebergbrunnen you can take a few minutes to relax in the Jacobikirche built in 1340 and with a bit of luck listen to the largest preserved baroque organ in northern Germany, on which Johann Sebastian Bach once played.
