Spanning three centuries, this shop brought fashion to Hamburg and is still said to lead the trend in fashion, decor and lifestyle. After two revolutionary remodels, a third is underway – for in a city that changes, one must remain a step ahead.
When it opened in 1897, women fell in love with the fashionable hats and parasols from across the border in France, and from the choices of food and products imported from the far East. It was the kind of success that attracted additional shops, creating even more foot-traffic until the whole street became the liveliest in town.
Then in 1912, in what seemed to be a second revolution, Alsterhaus revealed the extravagant shop that still exists today. Holding the greatest imports from around the world, this empire even hosted a food court, a writing room, a reading room and a large department for both exotic and local foods. It immediately became an institute for the city dwellers and reference point for all things saleable or purchasable.
In progress since 2016, the new restoration project is aimed to completely renovate the building from top to bottom, holding true to the promise of always staying a step ahead in both quality service and pleasant shopping experiences.
All the best luxury brands in the world are found here. Because everyone who sets foot in this town must come to Alsterhaus.
