Welcome to Alsterhaus
When the Hermann Tietz department store opened its doors on 24 April 1912, it was already known all over town. The previous Tietz store had excited the people of Hamburg with its bright splendour and wide range of products. Its high standards of quality were to endure way beyond 1936, the year in which it was given the name Alsterhaus.
Today, Alsterhaus in Hamburg covers 24,000 square metres in an exclusive atmosphere comprising a historic structure and modern interior design and in the course of the renovation work started in 2016, is once again taking on a radical new structure. As ever, guests from near and far are presented with a proven blend of designer fashion, beauty and top products for home and further afield.
In the course of the renovation, designed by Kleihues & Kleihues, and initiated in 2016, the Luxury Hall on the Ground Floor has been restored to its former glory. The Atrium hosts the best selection of brands since the Alsterhaus first opened more than 100 years ago: bags and accessories from international designer brands, as well as watches, jewellery and gift shopping symbolise the inclusion of modern luxury at this long-established store. The interior of the Accessories Hall was designed by Sebastian Herkner, whose name is synonymous with contemporary design art. His creations exemplify not least the fact that shopping also includes an aesthetic experience in keeping with the times.
The Fourth Floor is a magnet for curious and discerning connoisseurs. Be it for a brief break from shopping at the Elbgold coffee bar, a visit to Hamburg’s “Burgermeister”, Billy the Butcher or a dinner at Japanese restaurant, Yoshi, with a view of the Binnenalster: The Alsterhaus Food World offer something for everyone – from the traditional to the exclusive. The best part? Our gift hampers, available on the food floor, are the perfect gift for any occasion.
You can make use of other services like personal shopping, the chauffeur and limousine service, the alteration studio and our beauty lounges at our department store. Alsterhaus is a piece of Hamburg – since more than a century ago and into the future.
We look forward to seeing you!
