ABC-Viertel, Colonnaden, Gänsemarkt, Gänsemarkt Passage

Magnificent buildings and traditional shops

A walk through the district provides not only an individual shopping experience but spoils the visitors with overwhelming impressions of a unique architecture. Especially the boulevard “Colonnaden” with its Wilhelminian style scenery and the historically unique arcade are always an experience even for long-established hanseatic residents. It is home to numerous traditional companies with their individual assortments. Especially on warm days, the street spreads a Mediterranean flair that invites you to stroll and relax in one of the many restaurants with outdoor seating. The Gänsemarkt is only a few steps from the Colonnaden. Here, the Gänsemarkt Passage awaits the visitor with its range of international fashion labels. From there, you can head to the ABC-Viertel, where the mix of red brick buildings, white Art Nouveau houses, and modern architecture creates a suspenseful contrast. There are a range of boutiques, jewellery and lifestyle stores, through to antique and art dealers. The Marriott Hotel bar is a popular meeting place for hotel guests, tourists, and locals.


The restaurant “Die Bank”, in the former banking hall of a credit institution, has a nationally excellent reputation due to his light, refined cuisine and stylish ambience.
