The prestigious Alsterhaus is prominently located at Jungfernstieg, facing the Binnenalster lake in the heart of Hamburg. As the best known department store in Hamburg it is operated by the KaDeWe Group. The popular location is perfectly suited for retail purposes and visited frequently by tourists from all over the world.

The property, then called Warenhaus Hermann Tietz, opened its doors in April 1912 and positioned itself as a city landmark during the first half of the 20th century. It has since been frequently renovated – most recently in 2005.

In the upcoming years, together with its strategic partner La Rinascente, the world’s largest department store operator, The KaDeWe Group will jointly invest a three digit million amount in the reconstruction and redevelopment of its three premium stores, KaDeWe in Berlin, Alsterhaus in Hamburg and Oberpollinger in Munich.
