The Jungfernstieg is a popular boulevard and Hamburg's hub, whose wide walkway invites you to take a leisurely stroll. It runs from Gänsemarkt through gorges and is framed by buildings and the Binnenalster.
The historic and modern buildings along the Jungfernstiege include the Hamburger Hof, a Commerzbank branch and the entrance to the Europa Passage. The top floor of the famous Alsterhaus offers a magnificent view of the promenade, Germany's first asphalted street.
As in the past, there are still launches today that offer a popular round trip from the jetty across the Alster. Today, however, they no longer serve to transport the families with their daughters to Jungfernstieg.
In former times rich families walked with their daughters on the Jungfernstieg to find a suitable man for each daughter. The street no longer serves this purpose, but the name has remained.
How to get there
