    For many Hamburgers and visitors it is the heart of the city center: the Jungfernstieg - a multifaceted connection between the Binnenalster, surrounding shops and sights.
    For the hamburgers, the historical significance of the boulevard plays an important role: In the past, families used to go for a walk on Sunday and run their unmarried daughters ("maidens") - hence the name. And even today, the Jungfernstieg is something very special: one enjoys being right on the water - the Binnenalster -, arranges to meet in this central location and starts shopping in the adjacent department stores - especially the well-known and traditional Alsterhaus - and small but fine shops.
    After a break and refreshment in the Alsterpavillon, you continue to the surrounding shopping zones and passages. In the passage "Hamburger Hof" or the "Hanse-Viertel" a little further back, shopping becomes a culture: the big department stores and exquisite shops outdo each other with their exclusive offers. The day can then be completed beautifully with an ice cream and back on the water: Alternatively, a dusk on the Alster steamers.

    The Jungfernstieg is a street on the southern bank of the Binnenalster in the center of Hamburg. It runs from the Reesendamm bridge to the Gänsemarkt and is the first street in Germany to be asphalted (1838).
    Originally built as Reesendamm for damming the Alster in 1235 under Count Adolf IV of Schauenburg and Holstein, he was the site of the upper mill. One of the oak piles from which the dam was built has been turned into a sculpture by Richard Luksch that can be viewed on the platform of the U1 and commemorates the victims of a water leak during the construction of this station in the 1930s. The Jungfernstieg was Germany's first street, which was already paved in 1838.
    After the Great Fire in 1842, a regulation of the Alster was made, their main drain was passed through an old moat under the Reesendammbrücke by the Kleine Alster on the Alsterarkaden, while the old drainage through today's Nikolaifleet was. The south side of the Jungfernstieges was rebuilt. From 1843 to 1881, the first large shopping arcade, Sillem's Bazar, was on Jungfernstieg.
    The street was given its name by a bourgeois rite: on the boulevard on Sunday, families took their unmarried ladies, the maidens, for a walk.

    The historic Alsterhaus on Jungfernstieg - in 2012 it was a proud 100 years old - is a renowned department store with delicatessen department. It is also
    a counterpart to the KaDeWe Kaufhaus des Westens) in Berlin.
    But by its long tradition, the imposing facade and the diverse product range, it is by no means necessary to hide. On 24,000 square meters of retail space and five grundsarnierten floors plus ground and basement shopping friend finds in the Alster House everything your heart desires and allows the wallet. The department store specializes primarily in perfume, clothing and delicatessen.
    But otherwise, the Alsterhaus has a lot to offer: In the basement there is, among other things, a confectionery department. In the beauty lounges treatments for the hands, nails and face are the focus and in the noble ambience of the hairdresser Tröndles a new haircut can be tried out. The third floor will also feature the latest furnishing trends. On the fourth floor is the restaurant LeBuffet - just the view of the Binnenalster and the Alster Fountain is worthwhile. In the immediate vicinity of the Alsterhaus are the Hamburg City Hall, the Mönckebergstraße, the Colonnaden and the Gänsemarkt. The Opera Boulevard, including the Hamburg State Opera, is also just a short walk away.

    The traditional Alster pavilion is located directly on the Jungfernstieg on the Inner Alster. The Alster pavilion was completely renovated in the 1990s and reopened in 2001 after a successful operator was found with the Alex Gastro chain.
    The concept of Alex Gastro is a mix between café, bistro and restaurant in connection with the so-called experience catering. Here, seeing and being seen is very important.

    Directly on Hamburg's most beautiful promenade, the Jungfernstieg, the Hamburg merchant Wilhelm Sillem had the most glamorous shopping arcade in Europe built on the site of today's HAMBURGER HOF after the big fire in 1842: “Sillems Bazar”. The press praised the revolutionary glass and cast iron construction and the red-black marble interior.In 1881 the building had to make way for a new building, designed by the architects Hanssen & Meerwein, who later also participated in the construction of the town hall. The luxury hotel "Hamburger Hof" was created with the famous neo-baroque sandstone facade, which still shapes the appearance of this imposing building.At the end of the 1970s, the architect Hans Joachim Fritz used it to create a combined office and commercial building with a continuous shop passage. This was the birth of today's HAMBURGER HOF shopping arcade, which opened in 1979.hhof-passage.de/die-passage/historie-impressionen

    The Jungfernstieg stretches along the southern bank of the Hamburg Alster. The historic promenade is the focal point in the center of the Hanseatic city. Its name goes back to a Sunday rite of wealthy Hamburg families in the middle of the 17th century.
