The wonderful Jungfernstieg is located between the Reesendammbridge and the Gänsemarkt. It is one of the most beautiful and exquisite shopping streets in the whole world.
In front of the Binnenalster (“Inner Alster Lake”) you will find Hamburg’s most popular promenade – the Jungfernstieg. Its name leads back to a old tradition. A long time ago families came to the Jungfernstieg on sundays for taking a walk with their unmarried ladies, the damsels (german word: “Jungfer”). The name “Jungfern”stieg resulted from this rite.
