Hamburg is one of the wealthiest cities in Germany, and those people want nice clothes to wear. There are a great range of shops from H&M all the way to the top. Although we aren’t into the Vuitton’s or anything, there is a really good range of shops like Acne, BCBG, etc.
And don’t be limited to the big shops in the centre, there are also some really cool owner operated shops in St Pauli with a cool selection of clothes from around Germany and around the world.
We rate the shopping here better than Amsterdam, and being relatively close the Netherlands and combined with the cool things a proper city has to offer then we think you can have a great weekend trip here.
