In the Hamburg Metropolitan Region there are countless opportunities for great shopping experiences.

In cities such as Hamburg, Lüneburg, Lübeck or Wismar, you will find not only the well-known shops but also small boutiques and manufactories to bring back something very special from your trip to northern Germany.

If you like bargain hunting, the outlet centres in Neumünster or Soltau are the place to be.

Especially during Advent, the cities of the Hamburg metropolitan region are a magnet for visitors who enjoy atmospheric shopping. The scent of punch and candied almonds is in the air, the lights twinkle and everything seems a little bit magical.

Northern Germany invites you to stroll and wander through the magnificent shopping streets of the Hanseatic cities. Here, where trade in exquisite goods from all over the world is part of history, things get especially festive and atmospheric from the end of November.

At the Fischleder Concept Store in Wismar, individual jewellery is made using traditional goldsmith’s craftsmanship. In collaboration with fish leather-loving labels, accessories such as handbags, belts, purses and shoes are also curated. When visiting the store, you can take a peek into the open workshop and look over the shoulder as the jewellery is being made.
