The elegant Colonnaden pedestrian street features magnificent Wilhelminian architecture and specialty boutiques. Colonnaden was built in 1874 as a private street by the Wex brothers, who owned a selection of properties in central Hamburg. Many of the street’s original Neo-Renaissance façades remain intact. The name ‘Colonnaden’ stems from the many columns supporting the arcades alongside the street, which give the area a luxurious Venetian flair. Exquisite marble shop fronts lure visitors inside boutiques where they can easily spend hours browsing through unique pieces, each with their own stories. Although Colonnaden has faced turbulence over the last century, today it is in impeccable shape, boasting an exciting mix of modern stores and traditional shops with long-established names hearkening back to Hamburg's olden days. A stroll up and down Colonnaden is a highlight of every visit to Hamburg. (Reference:
