Mönckebergstraße is one of the most popular addresses. It is the centrally located main shopping street of Hamburg between the town hall and the main train station. This shopping mile looks back on a hundred-year-old tradition and can easily be reached by public transport, preferably to the Mönckebergstraße underground station. You'll also find numerous major department stores and shopping malls here, including Karstadt, Galeria Kaufhof and Saturn.

Shopping in the Mönckebergstraße in Hamburg - The possibilities

The boulevard in the centre of Hamburg offers something for every customer. There are expensive luxury shops along Mönckebergstraße as well as small souvenir shops, sports shops and electronics specialist markets. Perfumeries, shoe shops, numerous fashion stores, opticians and jewellers also offer their products on the shopping mile, which is closed to individual traffic and only accessible to taxis and buses. The shopping street in the heart of the city offers its visitors not only a multitude of shops, including large department store chains and small independent shops, but also a pleasant shopping flair. Worth seeing is above all the Klöpperhaus near the main railway station, as well as the former book hall in the middle of Mönckebergstraße, which looks like a small temple. Tourists should also visit the St. Petri church, built in 1195: the oldest parish church in the city. Of course, tourists can also sit down and rest in one of the numerous cafés and restaurants while on their shopping tour. Those looking for entertainment can also find the oldest continuously operated cinema in all of Germany on this street, the Passage-Kino. Shopping in the Hamburg city centre holds a wealth of possibilities for guests and locals.
