The quarter

A marvel of
a milieu.

Grand boulevards surround the roughly 100,000-square-metre quar­ter comprising the four historic court­yards built as municipal offices between 1888 and 1916. With great respect for the structures’ landmark status, the fa­çades and archi­tec­tur­al features have been lovingly re­stored and the complex expanded.

Location & idea

A tour de force
of four courtyards
and eight buildings.

Bleichenhof, Stadthof, Treppenhof and Palaishof – the four Stadthöfe court­yards – are surrounded by a stately en­sem­ble of buildings: Görtz Palais, Palaishaus, Stadthaus, Brück­en­haus, Hof­haus, Markthaus, Fleethäuser and Bleichen­hof.


Oui, oui
to flânerie.

Staircases, vaulted gates, pas­sage­ways and the bridge arcade over Bleichenfleet canal ensure that all the court­yards are interconnected and the happy flaneur is treated to a charming vignette at every turn. Before you know it, a cornucopia of res­taur­ants and bistros will beck-on. Inter­spersed between them, you’ll find café bars, a club, a gor­geous four-star boutique hotel with 124 rooms, and some 50 distinctive shops and exclusive stores. This is the Hamburg of vive la différence – you’ll find nothing like it anywhere else in the city.
