THE ALSTERHAUS –
THE DEPARTMENT STORE ON THE JUNGFERNSTIEG
When the Hermann Tietz department store opened its doors in Hamburg on 24 April 1912, it was already renowned across the city and impressed the people of Hamburg with its magnificent lights and wide-ranging assortment. Its high-quality standards endured – far beyond 1936 when it was renamed the Alsterhaus.
The Alsterhaus today extends over an area of 24,000 m² in an exclusive ambience complete with a historic building and modern interior. Renovation work lasting several years and based on the designs of Kleihues + Kleihues resulted in a fundamental new structure in 2016.
Local and international guests alike can explore a unique mix of designer fashion, beauty, food, travel and interior décor items here.
