Exclusive Shopping Tips
Park Hyatt Hamburg is located in one of the most beautiful historical buildings in Hamburg – the Levantehaus. Built in 1912 by architect Franz Bach, the Deutsche Levante Line had their residence in the building and as their ships rode “levante” (toward the sun), the rising sun is the trademark of the Levantehaus nowadays. From 1995 to 1997 the building was reconstructed completely and converted into an exclusive shopping passage. In 1998 Park Hyatt Hamburg opened its doors inside the passage which is still owned by the Bach family. The Levante passage invites you to stroll around in 40 exclusive shops and have a rest in first-class restaurants as well as cafés.
