Mellinpassage Oldest shopping arcade in Hamburg

© Timo Sommer und Lee Maas / Hamburg Mediaserver

Magnificent wall paintings and traditional shops paint the picture of the Mellinpassage. The impressive building is home to the oldest shopping arcade in the Hanseatic city.

Not far from the Alsterarkaden, Hamburg's shopping paradise is flourishing. Impressive buildings and noble brands fill the streets around the Alster with life. The Mellinpassage is enthroned amidst the hustle and bustle. It connects the Alsterarkaden with the Neuer Wall, an exclusive shopping street.

Impressive architecture

The Mellin Passage is enveloped in a majestic glow. Impressive ceiling paintings and wall paintings in Art Nouveau decorate the building, which was built in the 19th century. No less impressive are the local shops and brands. The Felix Jud bookstore is one of the most famous and traditional shops in Hamburg. For more than 95 years, the antiquarian bookshop has housed treasures from literature and art.

Biscuit baker Mellin

Hamburg's oldest shopping mall owes its name to the former biscuit baker Mellin. Today, there is much more than delicacies in the Mellinpassage. In the holy shopping halls, for example, fine vases, figures and tableware from the Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur Berlin can be purchased.
